Photos: The world's 25 fastest supercomputers

The US has lost its place on the podium for the world's fastest supercomputers, after being edged out by European and Chinese machines.

The latest TOP500 list of the most powerful number crunchers is once again ruled by the Chinese Sunway TaihuLight and its ability to handle 93 quadrillion calculations per second.

While there are changes elsewhere in the top 25, most of machines still rely heavily on vast numbers of Intel CPUs, sometimes aided by Nvidia GPUs or many-core Intel Phi processors.

Here are the 25 most powerful machines in the TOP500 list of supercomputers.
