How fast is exascale computing?

So fast it can solve a quintillion—1018—math problems every second.

Exascale computing means a computing system that can perform at least one exaflop—or one quintillion (a billion billion) calculations per second.

No matter how you look at it, Exascale is huge, not just in sheer numbers, but in societal impact. It’s not just faster; it’s a different approach to fast.
