China preps its own supercomputer processor

Posted on Wednesday, March 09 2011 @ 00:00:55 CET by

CNET reports China will soon be using its own Loongson processors for a supercomputer named Dawning 6000. This supercomputer is expected to be ready by the end of the year, it promises to eventually deliver a computing power of over 1 petaflops.
China will install CPUs developed by government-backed research institutions into a test supercomputer by the end of 2011. The Loongson microchips will underpin the Dawning 6000 high-performance computing system, which is scheduled to be available for tasks as early as summer, China's state-owned People's Daily Online publication reported.

The Dawning 6000 will use up to 10,000 Loongson microchips and will eventually have a computing speed of more than 1,000 trillion operations a second, according to the article. (1,000 trillion operations are equal to a petaflop.)
