    Named Tianhe-1A, which means "Milky Way" in Mandarin, China's new supercomputer has 168 graphics processing units -- the type of graphics chips used in video games -- and 14,336 Intel CPUs, according to PC World. All of these processors were made by U.S. companies, but they're linked together by new Chinese-invented technology.

    China Dethrones US With World's Fastest Supercomputer, the Tianhe-1A

    I remember all the right wingers laughing and calling me names when I pointed out the US Air Force built a super computer from play station chips.

    One thing the GOP has proven, they know how to nation build.

    Millions of jobs moved to China from 2001 to 2008.

    US Technology moved to China.

    Chinese and Republican supported US Chamber of Commerce seminars on outsourcing American jobs to China.

    Subsidies and tax breaks to train Chinese to take over American jobs.

    And from all of our training, they put together a better super computer than us based on our own technology. Good Going GOP. You did it!!!!

    It was inevitable this would happen. We've devalued education so much in this country we were bound to lose the techonological edge sooner or later.

    This is what happens when you champion Corps at the expense of a countries ability to succeed.

    Why did we not make a super computer first? Weve made shitloads of them over the years. What the fuck are you even talking about? :lol:

    Well come on all you wingnuts. Where's all that laughing and finger pointing. Oh yea, "run cruise missile with a PlayStation", Oh that rdean. What an idiot.

    Consumer electronics is NOTHING like military electronics.

    Where are you? Did you run off and hide?

    Chinese Supercomputer Likely to Prompt Unease in U.S.

    It is part of a new breed that exploits graphics chips more commonly used in playing videogames

    Supercomputers are massive machines that help tackle the toughest scientific problems, including simulating commercial products like new drugs as well as defense-related applications such as weapons design and breaking codes.

    Moreover, while the Japanese system was a single machine, Tianjin is part of a multi-year strategy by China to develop a range of machines to create a dominant position in both military and commercial applications.

    Outsourcing benefits the rich and hurts the working class in America.

    Perhaps we can get some runtime on the super computer to figure our budget?
