I'm sure this has something to do with it:

Subject: [sl4] The Jaguar Supercomputer
Right now the most powerful computer on the planet is the Jaguar XT5 at Oak
Ridge Tennessee, it can perform 1.759 quadrillion calculations
(petaflops) per second. I like the fact that unlike many previous winners of
the number one spot Jaguar is not working on classified projects but is an
open science machine. However it's not likely to retain its crown for long,
for reasons that I don't entirely understand the speed of the very fastest
computers has been advancing even faster than Moore's Law. For the last 5
years the speed of the fastest computer on Earth has doubled every 9 months
and there is no slowdown in sight.
