Top500 November ’17

So the November edition of the Top500 supercomputer list is now out, and I thought I would revisit my post from June and see where things stack up compared to that issue. From the looks of things most of the movement was introduced by the additions of new systems bumping other systems, ie Titan’s drop to number 5 or nVidia’s new entry. NOAA has two new systems on the list, but I marked them with the ** as I don’t know that these systems are used for meteorology like the other 4 on the list.
