[san-tech][03204] Graph 500 Complete Results - June 2011公開
Intel Xeonと FPGAを組み合わせた異色の Hybrid Core Computerの Convey社
Convey HC-1exが Graph 500で良い成績を収めたので、それに合わせての

まずは Graph 500関連プレスリリース:
"Convey Computer Announces Graph 500 Performance"
 June 16, 2011
※↑ HTML版

  "Convey Computer announced today that the company has joined the
   ranks of the world's most powerful computer systems for
   data-intensive computing with its performance on the Graph 500
   benchmark. The performance of a single Convey HC-1ex node is 773
   million traversed edges per second (MTEPS) on a problem of
   scale 27."

Complete Results November 2010, Graph 500
では、Problem Size: Scale 27 (Toy+) のエントリーは
  Jaguar (Cray XT5-HE, 512 node subset): 800 MTEPS,
  Implementation: Reference
だけです(トータルエントリーは 9)。
2011年 6月版は Top500と一緒に発表となっています。
