China develops new supercomputer that is 10 TIMES faster than the current quickest machine in the world
Machine is expected to do over 1,000 quadrillion calculations per second
This equals to 20 million desktop computers working simultaneously
The new model was announced by China’s state-run media on November 2
China has started to build a prototype supercomputer which will run ten times faster than the current fastest system.
The new machine’s calculating capacity will equal to 20 million desktop computer combined.
In other words, the world’s entire population will need to use calculators together for 320 years to do as many calculations as the supercomputer in one minute.
The world’s current fastest computer, the Sunway Taihulight was also developed by China.
