Top 10 Fastest Computers in the World
This is the list of fastest computers in the world. Minimum that can be known by the public. Many people believe, there are computers owned by the U.S. government secrets whose existence was not generally known, and even the speed is much faster than the Roadrunner. This is 10 World’s Fastest Computer.

Roadrunner computer is 60,000 times faster than today’s fastest personal computer. It costs about U.S. $ 133 Million. One interesting fact, this supercomputer has a cell structure is almost identical with the kids toy computer, a Playstation 3. Roadrunner uses Cell Broadband Engine ™ processor, or Cell BE created by IBM, Sony, and Toshiba are also used for the Playstation, though of course with a “little” new modifications. Roadrunner is the fastest computer in the world.
