HPCwire, “The Leading Source for Global News and Information Covering the Ecosystem of High Productivity Computing,” posted a story last week by The Register, highlighting the release of the 5th Green500 listing, a ranking of the most energy-efficient supercomputers in the world.  The Green500, created by CS faculty members Wu-chun Feng and Kirk Cameron, is a reorganization of the TOP500 supercomputers in accordance to their energy efficiency rankings.  The Green500 list serves as a complimentary list to the annual TOP500 ranking, providing an opportunity for the high-end computing community to focus on alternative performance metrics such as power efficiency rather than speed.
