China-based supercomputer

...A China-based supercomputer has been ranked the world’s fastest, offering nearly double the processing speeds of the US’s most powerful system.

Tianhe-2 – meaning Milky Way-2 – operates at 33.86 petaflop/sec, the equivalent of 33,860 trillion calculations per second.

It topped the latest list of the fastest 500 supercomputers, by a team of international researchers.
