China has started to develop its first exascale computer capable of performing a billion billion calculations per second, as the country steps up efforts to stay in the lead of the global supercomputer race.

The high-performance computer, if it can be built by 2020, will boost the country’s scientific capability and possibly maintain its prestige of housing the world’s fastest calculating system.

The exascale supercomputer will operate at 1,000 petaflops, or quadrillion calculations per second, 10 times the speed of China’s TaihuLight, which topped a 2016 global supercomputer speed list.

Aside from its real world ­applications, the TaihuLight is a landmark in terms of its ­components, using home-made 260-core ShenWei chips (!), whereas the Tianhe-2 was built using Intel processors. Beijing views the ­development of the ShenWei chips as vital given the export ­embargo the US has slapped on highly advanced chips that could have military applications.

Ni!

Well said, after a couple of PGGBs.

After I drink Sponge-Load of Vodka, that is exactly what I sound like.

Ni!
