New Chinese Supercomputer Nr. 1

The current list of 500 fastest supercomputers in the world shows for the first time two Chinese supercomputers on the two top spots - number 2 is the already well known Tianhe-2 Supercomputer using Intel processors and accelerator. But the new number 1 system is the Taihu Supercomputer, which solely uses Chinese processor technology, reaches 125 Pflop/s with more than ten million cores, and puts a considerable distance in performance to the still fastest US supercomputer. See this link for the news on Taihu, and this link on the top 500 list.
