A computer that is much bigger, larger, has specialized components, and is far more efficient than a general-purpose computer and can solve a larger range of complex problems.
A supercomputer is a computer that is more capable and efficient in handling operations than a general-purpose computer and can solve a larger range of complex problems. The main difference between this computer and the common non-super computers is operating scope and speed. The former operates at a much higher level, is capable of computing very complex problems, and does so at a ridiculously high speed.
Detecting payment fraud is one of the most common applications of supercomputers currently. The advantage these computers bring to the board is processing accuracy and speed. Furthermore, supercomputers use algorithms which work to precisely identify alluring opportunities for trading in the market—all the while processing massive volumes of trading data and simulating high-frequency trading.
