Supercomputer

The largest  fastest and most  powerful  are called supercomputers. Supercomputers are mainly used for  weather forecasting remote  sensing image processing, biomedical   applications etc. Examples of few supercomputers  are Cray Y-  MP/ 832  Cray 2, NEC SX -3 etc. In   India  we have Cray XMP 14  supercomputer  used by Meteorological department.

Important: Actually  it is difficult to categorise  computers  according to this  classification due to very fast  growth  of technology. For example  latest microcomputer may be  better than  old mini or mainframes.
