Most of the supercomputer vendors maintain substantial benchmarking capabilities. These are usually distributed worldwide. Since the vendor centers are geared towards benchmarking and internal software development, we decided this year not to list them in the same list as the TOP25\ supercomputer centers, which are geared towards research. In Table 2, we list the vendor sites, which would have made the TOP25 list.
|1||IBM||7, 154, 185, 235||106.2|
|2||NEC||9, 40, 426||86.4|
|3||Cray Res.||32, 62, 63, 94, 193||71.2|
