Scientists have used a supercomputer to simulate what the Universe was like as the first galaxies were forming. The model maps how matter is thought to have been distributed a few hundred million years after the Big Bang. The work should help astronomers hunt down ancient galaxies using the latest telescope technologies - they will know what to look for.

A supercomputer built with components designed for the Sony PlayStation 3 has set a new computing milestone. The IBM machine, codenamed Roadrunner, has been shown to run at "petaflop speeds", the equivalent of one thousand trillion calculations per second. ... "We are getting closer to simulating the real world." ... It would be of particular use for calculating risk in financial markets, he said. "The latency of...

A pioneering research effort could shrink the world's most powerful supercomputer processors to the size of a sugar cube, IBM scientists say. The approach will see many computer processors stacked on top of one another, cooling them with water flowing between each one. The aim is to reduce computers' energy use, rather than just to shrink them. Some 2% of the world's total energy is consumed by building and running computer...
