China is the largest population in the world, if the economy could up to the level of developing country status, definitely each chinese dollar constribute to the central government fund could build most expenisve project or product in the world that no other country could work on it as easy as the China, largest pool of dollar capital fund is the key count. Look at the reason of Maglev made in China, you will wonder why others do not work on it becuase of fund !

Do not worry, in the last 10 centuries, China has dominated more than five. On supercomputers, give them extra three decades and it will be history. People, engineering is no more exciting in America and that is the problem.

@EEMod: " As their quality of products improves, they would not need to assemble others product to make profit, thay can do better with their own product." I have to wonder what foreign companies who are investing heavily in China will do when the manufacturers currently making their products turn into their competitors.

I totally agree with Charles here, that this is no surprise. Many firms thought of China as a cheap manufacturing house and failed to see it growing rapidly to become a big player in the high-tech arena. I would not be surprised to see China taking over many consumer markets with its own products and this will be an openning towards future supercomputers. As their quality of products improves, they would not need to assemble others product to make profit, thay can do better with their own product.

Thanks for this article. No surprise hereÖthatís why we need to encourage our students with great minds to continue to be creative and realize that they can make a different in the world of science, math, and technology. We need to better prepare the next generation of engineers if we are going to continue to be a world leader. China set this goal on their national agenda 20 years agoÖonce again, why are we so surprise? We need to stop living in the past. This is a new day, and it is calling for new ideas.

You can't keep from wondering about the real-world applications that may be running on China's supercomputers. One thing is to show off technical prowess; another thing is to show off the real-world applications that these supercomputers perform calculations on. Maybe there are Chinese supercomputers at SC10 that exhibit the result of their prowess? This research bellwether is exhibiting: http://english.ict.cas.cn/au/

Some say China is already replacing the Ethernet/Infiniband interconnect chips with its own designs and anticipate it could replace the x86 processors with its own Godson parts in the not too distant future.

China is showing its ambition in technology by building large supercomputer. But still the final winners are still the US companies, Intel and AMD.
