China claims supercomputer crown

7000 graphics processors and 14,000 Intel chips. This is very nice. Built in 100 refrigerated cabinets. What would be nice is if China would connect their supercomputer to ours, then maybe together we could find a cure for cancer.

Hopefully bbc doesn’t think that I am stealing their picture if I link to their website. I wonder if they paid China for the picture or got it for free. I would appreciate any comments.
