The US is taking back the title of worlds fastest computer. Made by the "Big Blue" IBM is creating it. Japan has held the record for the last couple of years with there "Earth simulator" running at a mind blowing 35.86 teraflops and the new IBM "Blue gene" will run at a slightly faster 36 teraflops. The prototype is in my home state of MN (Cool huh) Here is the link
