DARPA to build Exaflop computer to beat China

China recently showed the United States one up in the world of computing with building the world’s fastest computer, but DARPA and Sandia and Oak Ridge National laboratories on are China’s heels. They seek to build a computer that can perform exaflop calculations. Currently the state of the art in computers is teraflops. This is followed by petaflops, and then exaflops. DARPA wants computers to perform exaflops by 2018.
