ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the plans of China to develop two 100 peta floating-point operations per second (Petaflop) machines that will be using a Chinese-designed central processing unit (CPU). Topics include the National University of Defence Technology (NUDT) in China developing the Tianhe-2 computer, the use of Shen Wie chip and high-radix Network Routing Chips (NRC). Also mentioned are the 863 Programme of China and National Computing Centers in China located in Wuxi, Guangzhou and Tianjin.
