Queue someone pedantically reminding me that a Power9, though a descendant, is far removed from even the CPU in a G5. Insert response that I don't care, it's just interesting. :p

With that disclaimer out of the way, I just wanted to share this article I saw this morning. The world's most powerful (commercial) supercomputer, and the 11th overall, was just built by IBM in France. This (of course) leverages Power9 CPUs.

(Full disclosure: I work for ZDNet's parent company, so you seeing ads on that site tangentially puts a few pennies toward my salary :D)
