EL CAPITAN

On track to be the world’s fastest supercomputer!

  • 2
    Quintillion calculations per second

    Just how fast is 2 quintillion? It's fast fast-18 zeros fast! 2,000,000,000,000,000,000

  • 2
    2 quintillion =

    2 exaflops = 2,000 petaflops
    (2,000,000,000,000,000,000)

  • 7.7
    Billion

    If all 7.7 billion people on Earth each completed one calculation per second, it would take over 8 years to do what El Capitan will be capable of doing in 1 second.
