These super computers just amaze me!!!
"China hasn't exactly hung with the world's elite in supercomputer speed, making the advent of this thing all the more outstanding"
China has 2 Super Computers in the Top 5 already. The "Tianhe-1A" #2 (2.566 Pflops) and the "Nebulae" #4 (1.271 Pflops). I'd say they're doing ok.

^ Except this new supercomputer is made with china-made processors, not American designed Nvidia, Intel or AMD chips, that's what makes it news worthy.
dam these supercomputer look beast :D, can i get that case? :P
The guy to handle and take care of the beast must be really happy, or frustrated. lol
Imagine running some folding @ home calculations on one of these systems lol. Chinese made processors I certainly would not trust them.
omegadraco:I certainly would not trust them
I wouldn't either.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Probably the fastest super computer up to this date. Congratulations! More power to China
Kudos to the scientists and technicians who developed this machine - and to the politicians who had the foresight to bankroll them !...
