List types of computer

The main types of computer are supercomputers, mainframes, personal computers, laptops, netbooks, tablets and smartphones. Each have different purposes and capabilities.

Supercomputers have huge data storage capacities and unrivaled processing power. They are used by large organizations that require immense computing power. These computers are exceptionally expensive and very delicate. Housed in clean rooms, supercomputers must be kept free of dust and debris, and have to be constantly cooled because of the heat they generate.
Mainframe computers have considerably less power and capacity than supercomputers, but significantly more than personal computers. They are capable of processing billions of instructions per second and handle vast quantities of data simultaneously.
Personal computers are common in homes and offices throughout the world. Modern models have large storage capacities and run multiple applications simultaneously.
Modern laptops feature similar specifications to desktop computers, with the added bonus of being portable. However, laptops can feel heavy and battery life can be an issue if needing to work for long periods without being able to recharge.
Netbooks are smaller and lighter than laptops, but have considerably less storage capacity and power. However, their small size and minimal weight makes them attractive for browsing the web, checking emails and creating documents when not in the office.
Tablets and smartphones are similar in nature and operate on a touchscreen basis. They are user-friendly, lightweight and very convenient, being popular with people of all ages and backgrounds.

Where can we get instructions for all parts needed and instructions for building our on super computer?

Select the case for your supercomputer. This should be large enough to hold all of the required drives, while still providing enough room for air circulation to keep everything cool.

Server cases are perfect for this task since they are designed to hold large components that likely produce a lot of heat.

Keep in mind the form factor of the case, which will determine what kind of motherboard it will support. A standard ATX case will be compatible with the most motherboards.

Screw the motherboard into place. This vital component should be picked out with the processor(s) in mind. A supercomputer will need a lot of processing power.

Most supercomputers have multiple processors, so if that is a desired feature, you will have to select a motherboard with multiple processor slots and matching processors.

Another option is to select a motherboard that supports a single processor with multiple cores. A quad core processor provides the computing power of four processors on one chip.

Slide the processors into the sockets, and lock each arm down to hold them in place. Snap the heat sink and fan over each of the processors to help keep them cool.

Each fan should connect to either a fan header on the motherboard or directly to one of the Molex power connectors from the power supply unit.

Install the hard drives. A supercomputer needs a lot of storage space. It is possible to install several terabytes on a single system.

The largest limiting factor is budget and the motherboard's hard drive hookups. Usually the motherboard will provide enough hookups for four hard drives.

If needed, a peripheral expansion card that provides additional hookups can be used as well.

Install the rest of the computer hardware as you usually would. Make sure there is enough RAM to support supercomputer tasks.

A memory bank of at least 4 to 8 gigabytes should be considered for maximum multitasking potential.

Ensure there is adequate airflow through the case, and that all wiring is secured out of the path to prevent it from causing restrictions.

Install the operating system.

While a commercial desktop system such as Windows Vista will work just fine, the full power and stability of a supercomputer won't be realized unless a server operating system is used.

The Windows Server platform or a Linux distribution specifically designed with servers and supercomputers in mind will provide the most power from your hardware selections.

Ubuntu 10.10 Latest Version

Ubuntu is a linux operating system which can repair hard drives widows have corrupted and cant be repaired by windows operating systems

or you could use another operating system

hope this helps

What is super computer system

A super computer system is the term used to describe any computer system that performs with a speed higher than that of the ordinary computers. They are used by industries that require high mathematical computations. Examples of its use include the aviation industry, weather forecasting, space industry, and so on.
Its processing speed is extra ordinarily high.
It may chance you to know that no computer maintains the name of 'super computer' for so long. That is because there is a popular saying that "super computers of today become ordinary computers of tomorrow".
With the increasing technology on the speed of modern day computers, whenever the speed of the ordinary pc is upgraded to meet up to that of super computers, new super computers have to evolve, leaving the previous super computers as ordinary pc's.

I hope that was helpful?
Please, rate the answer if it was, and have a lovely day.

What is the most expensive computer in the world.

Others might say differently, but the most expensive computer in the world right now is the CRAY supercomputer at NASA in Houston.
It is estimated that this one single supercomputer is valued at around 100 million dollars.
It is the size of a semi trailer, and has 16384 multiple cores running at the same time.

In regular computer speed, it runs at around 2000 terrahertz, using what is known as quantum stacked hectaicosikaioctagon processors.
Each individual core runs at 122.070312.5 ghz
Now that is so fast, that it can calculate rotational forces of astronomical objects, including motion, spin rate, gravitational drag, solar wind drag, magnetic attraction rates, and numerous other things at the same time as well.

And the computer is the old model! They are working on new type of processor that is supposed to make the current one seem extremely slow in comparison.

It is supposed to be in the order of 50-100 times faster than the one currently in use.

I hope this helps you out, and good luck to you.

32-bit is also a term given to a generation of computers in which 32-bit processors were the norm.

64-bit CPUs have existed in supercomputers since the 1960s and in RISC-based workstations and servers since the early 1990s. .
