The current position:

Tianhe two will replace domestic chips, the operation speed increased by two times

According to the Russian satellite network reported that China once again dominate the global supercomputer performance rankings, not only swept the top two, and the number of the list is far beyond the United states. Experts interviewed by the Russian satellite news agency believe that China's huge investment in computing technology is not only to maintain the leading position in the global market, but also because China's domestic market demand for "Super Brain" is also quite high.

The global supercomputer Top500 latest list released Monday, China 202 supercomputer list, a record high, while the United States on the list of super number dropped to 144 units. In the last place, the "Titan" defeat to Switzerland "Daiente peak", this ranking is ranked fourth, behind Japan, "Xiaoguang" ranked fifth, therefore, the United States has two consecutive fall before three.

Chinese supercomputer Shenwei Taihu light "and" Tianhe No. two "has been four consecutive times in the championship. "Climate modeling and other scientific research for Taihu power light, speed up 9.301 quadrillion times per second.

"China's investment in this field is very large," said Albert Bach, an expert in the field of mathematical modeling and computer modeling for socio-economic phenomena, and vice president of the Institute of Central Economic Mathematics at the Russian Academy of sciences. These calculations are mainly used in climate prediction, cryptography, fluid mechanics, DNA research and other fields. The fastest supercomputers in China have used self-developed processors."

At present, the Institute of economic mathematics, Russian Academy of Sciences and China National Supercomputing Center in Guangzhou to develop large-scale software systems to carry out active cooperation, the future can be used to assess the consequences of the implementation of large-scale projects, such as the "Silk Road Economic Belt" initiative. Bach said that the assessment covers a wide range of social, economic, ecological and other fields.

Bach said: "the idea itself is unique.". First of all, this is a fairly new tool that allows us to consider building a simulation system that is close to reality. Second, using the most advanced hardware, which is very important for Chinese people, because they have made a bet on this."

He suggested that China should use the "Tianhe two" when needed, and also provide the user name and password.

According to the Tianhe No. two research center experts, by the end of this year Tianhe No. two will use the new Matrix2000 accelerator, to replace the original Intel accelerator, Tianhe No. two will therefore be finished for the domestic supercomputer, the maximum speed per second or 10 quadrillion times.

Experts said: "relying on Tianhe No. two, the national Supercomputer Center in Guangzhou to create a domain oriented supercomputer application platform, the construction of ecological environment for application software of domestic supercomputer, is currently in the universe astronomical science, earth science, life science, new materials, new energy, large equipment manufacturing, smart city and other areas have made a series of application of results, at present, the number of Tianhe No. two" has more than 2500 users, the number of users around the world center is one of the most, the most widely used supercomputer. At the end of this year, Tianhe No. two will use Guofangkeda self-developed Matrix2000 to replace the original Intel XeonPhi accelerator, and further upgrading of high-speed Internet, memory and storage, the second phase of system theory, the peak computing speed will increase to nearly 10 quadrillion times per second."

Industry experts point out that the United States clearly does not like China's leading position in the production of computer accessories and other electronic components (computer hardware), so it tried to ban export of Intel supercomputer chips to china. At the same time, China is increasingly opposed to the use of American software and related standards, and is committed to independent research and development products.
