Over in Japan at CEATEC, Fujitsu was showing off the K supercomputer, the fastest ranked computer in in the world.

Back in June, the Fujitsu K dethroned China's Tianhe-1A machine to take top spot. It is, in fact, more powerful than the rest of the top 5 put together.

It packs an incredible 672 racks with a whopping 68,544 CPUs making it capable of a benchmark performance of 8.162 petaflops, which is a quadrillion floating-point operations per second. Its aim to to hit 10 petaflops next year.

It's not officially in use yet, the idea is to having it up and running by the end of 2012 (with 800 racks) as a part of the High-Performance Computing Infrastructure (HPCI) initiative led by Japan's Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT).

The computer will mean “ground-breaking impact in fields ranging from global climate research, meteorology, disaster prevention, and medicine, thereby contributing to the creation of a prosperous and secure society” and is a result of a partnership between Fujitsu and Riken.

We'd love to take it for a spin. We bet we could blaze through a season or two on Football Manager with this bad-boy.
