Elemental Design Base of Chinese Supercomputer Technologies

  •  Andrey Molyakov    


China intends to close the technological gap from Western countries in microprocessor production by 2021. 46 new projects worth billions of dollars have already been launched in the country. Most of these projects receive direct or indirect state support, which creates a huge demand for domestic semiconductors. By a government decree, all servers in government offices and state-owned enterprises will be preferentially equipped with processors of domestic production. As a result, their sales are expected to grow at a rate of 20% annually. First of all, we are talking about “Loongson”, “Shenwei” and “Phytium” chips (the latter are the development of the Chinese military-industrial complex). The Shenwei processors, which have proved their effectiveness, are promising: they are the ones that run the world's most powerful supercomputer, Sunway Taihu Light, which consists of 10.65 million cores and performs 93 quadrillion operations per second.
