TOP500 Time Line

An attempt to put all important dates and events in one single place, from the first days of the TOP500 list to the present day. If you think we have missed an important event, please let us know.

TOP Systems in the List

To mark our 20th anniversary and the 40th edition of the list, we have created a series of posters recognizing each of the 15 supercomputers to lead the list over the years. Those posters are reproduced in this brochure, along with profiles of the four authors, a short discussion of the list and its use of the Linpack benchmark, and a series of graphs highlighting trends over the past 20 years.
