China is now in mode of developing new generation supercomputer; country holds the two fastest supercomputers now first ever exascale machine. This supercomputer Tianhe-3 will handle one quintillion calculations each second.
Tianhe-3 will be capable of doing a quintillion calculations each second. In list of global 500 supercomputers China is already heading at number 1 and number 2 places with Sunway TaihuLight and Tianhe-2.
Mr. Meng Xiangfei, Director of China’s National Supercomputer Center located at Tianjin stated to a Chinese newspaper that they will have a sample of this supercomputer by year.
Mr. Xiangfei is self-confident that engineers will overcome be able to overcome the hurdle of non-availability of super high performance processors. After Tianhe-3 is fully developed, it will be ten times faster than Sunway TaihuLight which is current record holder which operates at 93 petaFLOPS. As per Xiangfei this supercomputer will help to crack some of the world’s toughest scientific challenges with high accuracy, quickness and scope.
