China builds world’s fastest supercomputer without U.S. chips

China has built the world’s fastest supercomputer using locally made microchips,  a survey said,  the first time the  country has taken the top spot without using US technology .The sun way TaihuLight  machine is twice as fast as the previous number one..which was built in china with chips from us firm Intel, the top 500 survey of super computers said on its website China also has more top ranked supercomputers than the us for the first time since the survey began, with 167 compared to 165.located at China’s national supercomputer center in the eastern city of Wuxi, the Sunway TaihuLight will be used for climate modeling and life science research.

Its performance ends “speculation that China would have to rely on Western technology to compete effectively in the upper echelons of super-computing” the survey’s website said. The supercomputers on the Top500 list, which is produced twice a year, are rated based on speed in a benchmark test by experts from Germany and US. Of the top ten tested computers, two are in China, with four in the US, the ranking said. Others are in Japan, Germany, Switzerland and Saudi Arabia. China has poured money into big-ticket science and technology projects as it seeks to become a high-tech leader. It plans to open the world’s largest radio telescope in southeastern China this year, state-media reported.
