IBM's Blue Gene supercomputer, while running benchmark software, beat its own speed record by performing 183.5 trillion calculations (183.5 teraflops) every second. The previous record was 92 teraflops per second and was established 6 months ago.

BusinessWeek Online indicates Blue Gene's new record may not stand for very long either. Blue Gene is expected to have the hardware producing these extravagant number to double, meaning 184 teraflops will more than likely double to an eye-popping 368 teraflops per second.

Blue Gene was designed for the National Nuclear Security Administration in order to simulate the performance and safety of nuclear weapons and other applications.

The BusinessWeek Online article also provides a top-25 list of the fastest supercomputers in the world. An image of the list follows:
