Performance distribution of the “Top500” supercomputers. This histogram shows the floating-point performance distribution of the “Top500” fastest supercomputers, given in terms of representative commodity laptops. The data used were taken from the list published in November 2013 at and compared to the results obtained by running the same LINPACK benchmark [60] on a commodity laptop (Core i7-2720QM, 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM). Simple division of the real-world performance yielded the estimated performance as multiples of the commodity laptop.
