China News, a state owned and internationally oriented Chinese news agency, recently reported on the plan to build a “Thousand Trillion Level” super computer based on the domestically made FT-1500 CPU. The computer, named “Tian He II,” is scheduled to be built in 2011. The “Tian He I” super computer, built in 2009, was No. 5 in the world and No. 1 in Asia. It made China the second country after the U.S. that could build “Thousand Trillion Level” computers. The new project will focus more on high performance multi-core CPUs, secure and versatile CPUs, as well as embedded CPUs.
