Will the United States continue to be the country with the largest share of computational power in the November 2019 TOP500?

Question

The TOP500 list of the highest-performing computing systems is published twice per year, generally in June and November. Question will be resolved according to the data associated with the November 2019 TOP500 list. To access the data, visit https://www.top500.org/statistics/list/:

  • Select 'November 2019' from the 'TOP500 Release' drop down menu;

  • Select 'Countries' in the 'Category' drop down menu.

  • Click 'Submit.' Question will be resolved according to the data illustrated in the 'Countries Performance Share' pie chart. (The pie chart reflects the statistic, as is maximum performance, and is theoretical maximum performance.)

While historically the U.S. has been the #1 country in performance share of supercomputers, China held the #1 spot in June 2016 and Nov 2017.
