Oh yeah! China’s right on track for World domination.
First, the absurd economic growth and now usurping the West in technological advancements.
Here’s some technical jargon from Engadget:
“The fully operational Tianhe-1A, located at the National Supercomputer Center in Tianjin, scored 2.507 petaflops as measured by the LINPACK benchmark. That moves it past Cray’s 2.3 petaflops Jaguar located at Oak Ridge National Lab in Tennessee. Tianhe-1A achieved the record using 7,168 NVIDIA Tesla M2050 GPUs and 14,336 Intel Xeon CPUs consuming 4.04 megawatts.”
Just to note: I’m actually being sarcastic. I don’t think China is ahead of anybody technologically.
