Super Blood Moon over the Bay Bridge
(Super Blood Moon over the Bay Bridge — at San Francisco Treasure Island, Jeffrey M. Wang)

 

A supercomputer is a computer with a high-level computational capacity compared to a general-purpose computer. Performance of a supercomputer is measured in floating-point operations per second (FLOPS) instead of million instructions per second (MIPS). 

As of November 2016, the fastest supercomputer in the world is the Sunway TaihuLight, in mainland China.
