Top powerful supercomputer made in china

China surprise the world with a powerful supercomputer, what's interesting here is that the new supercomputer processor is fully made in china, with this step China processor technology production is closer to the U.S. supercomputer processor makers like Intel, AMD, and Nvidia. 

The new supercomputer called Sunway BlueLight MPP was introduced and tested in September at the National Supercomputer Center in Jinan, China, using 8,700 ShenWei SW1600 chips. 

The supercomputer can pass a thousand trillion calculations per second (or so-called Petavlob) and will be categorized within the 20 fastest super computer in the world and will use 8700 ShenWei SW1600 processor model.


The New York Times added that that ShenWei chip appears to be based "on some of the same design principles that are favored by Intel's most advanced microprocessors."

ZDNet UK's Jack Clark report these specifications :
According to (Tsao's) slides, which appear to be from a presentation describing the computer's capabilities, the ShenWei Sunway BlueLight MPP has 150TB main storage and 2PB external storage. Each ShenWei SW1600 processor is 64-bit based, packing 16-cores and is RISC-based.
