    That article (dated 9 June 2018) is almost one year old.

    According to my google search it is still the fastest.

    At that level with tens of thousands of separate CPU boards, it would be something like a Manhattan project to get one designed and built inside one year.
    Also I put the caveat in the title, FOR NOW. Fully acknowledging the fact someone will build one faster and one is in the works right now for a 250 petaflop machine. In another ten years I expect the first EXAflop machine to be up and running. 1000 petaflops.

    I just found it a bit odd that Sonhouse would attach 'for now' to an article that was
    published almost one year ago and perhaps written more than one year ago.

    Of COURSE you will find fault with ANYTHING I write. Let's see your latest pejorative list. I am beyond being hurt by you anymore.

    Maybe you want to dis my reply to the Faraday cage thread. I can't WAIT till you prove what I said wrong there.

    That does beg the question of why the paucity of YOUR science posts OR music you like posted to 'What are you listening to' in General.

    Sonhouse responds with his typical hysterical overreaction (at best).

    When Sonhouse wrote 'for now', did he notice that the article was almost one year old?

    In the big picture, does it really matter? Well, when it comes to me specifically I guess it does to you.
