BEIJING -- China's Tianhe-1 has overtaken Nebule to regain top spot as China's fastest computer, according to a new list of China's Top 100 supercomputers released Thursday.

Fantastic achievement - once again China has shown it has the will and ability to advance technology where it needs to.

Taking the best of what is available and adapting and improving is commonsense - wasting precious resources trying to "re-invent the wheel" is ridiculous.

The "Milky Way" should be a great asset with the ability to excite and provide terrific incentive for young Chinese engineers to strive for even greater achievements.

A 47% improvement over the existing "worlds best" is fantastic.

What could be next? A new breed of superconductors and even better integrated circuits - ditching the tired old technology of PCBs and inventing ICs with bluetooth connectivity providing quantum leaps in processor speeds? Maybe a complete computer with the processing power of "Milky Way" reduced to the size of a cigarette pack.........

Well done China

So what your are really saying is that it isn't Chinese technology - they just spent more cash on western technologies to build a faster computer.

Would you post a thread congratulat ...



No need for us to post anything congratulating USA for having anything - USA brags and brags and yells about itself enough for whole world. Worlds greatest everything.....except quiet achiever .......  

B52's and big mouths USA greates achievement.....................

Read that too.Good work. But don't forget this computer uses Intel and NVIDIA chips....western chips.


NVIDIA and Intel Chips that were used are made in China BUT according to Prof. Dongarra in New York Times, the main thing,the networking technology that shuttle the data back and forth WAS BUILT BY CHINESE.

Congrats to the engineers and developers of this super computer and congrats to China for this success.

A few words to the 'sour grapes department':

China is currently working hard to become independent of the chip suppliers from western companies. In a year or two the first Chinese high-performance chips will be ready for installation in new super computers. This will be the time when the most lucrative market for western chip manufacturer will slowly break away and a new potent supplier will involve them in powerful competition.

For now, the victory of "Tianhe 1A"  is above all, a huge image loss for the U.S.. For decades, U.S. institutions have led the hit parade with their machines thus demonstrating their technical supremacy. Right now China owns the number one in this field and, who knows, we'll soon see more.  Whichever way we look at it, it's a blow to the confidence of the U.S. technology industry and for China a long-awaited signal that it's able to match western technology in all aspects.
