China Pulls Ahead of U.S. in Latest TOP500 Supercomputers List

The fiftieth TOP500 list of the fastest supercomputers in the world has China overtaking the US in the total number of ranked systems by a margin of 202 to 143. It is the largest number of supercomputers China has ever claimed on the TOP500 ranking, with the US presence shrinking to its lowest level since the list’s inception 25 years ago.

Just six months ago, the US led with 169 systems, with China coming in at 160. Despite the reversal of fortunes, the 143 systems claimed by the US gives them a solid second place finish, with Japan in third place with 35, followed by Germany with 20, France with 18, and the UK with 15.

China has also overtaken the US in aggregate performance as well. The Asian superpower now claims 35.4 percent of the TOP500 flops, with the US in second place with 29.6 percent.

3. The number 1 system, Sunway TaihuLight, is a Chinese design

Obama blocked Intel, AMD and Nvidia from selling supercomputer class processor chips to China in early 2015. This has caused China to redouble efforts to design their own supercomputers.

history. The list is long of the greatest that self destructed by their own malfeasance.

Was a good run but there is only a decade or two left....IMO.
