Abstract

A recently suggested information-theoretic approach for performance evaluation of computers is modified and applied to modern supercomputers. This method is based on the notion of Computer Capacity, which is determined by computer architecture and can be calculated theoretically on a design stage. We calculated the computer capacity for three of the first 10 supercomputers from the last TOP500 list and compared results with those of Linpack and Theoretical peak given is this list. The obtained results showed that Computer Capacity is a reasonable estimation of the performance of supercomputer.
