China tops in supercomputers:
China now has more high-performance supercomputers than ever before, again besting the United States in global rankings, a supercomputer tracking organisation said.
The standing corresponds with China’s growing reputation as the global leader in supercomputers, as the Asian power prepares to launch in June 2018 a prototype exascale computing machine — a “super supercomputer”.
Some 202 of the world’s fastest supercomputers are in China — compared with 143 in the US — according to Top500, a site that has tracked supercomputer development for more than two decades. China’s President is Xi Jinping.
