Hi folks! So the latest in the technology world is that China built a 1 Petaflop supercomputer!

Apparently this supercomputer is the 15th fastest supercomputer in the world and it uses 8704 homegrown processors!

What’s cool about it is it’s low power consumption for what it is, and the fact that it’s not using Intel or AMD!

You can read more about it here.
