Up to now, quite all of the CPUs are from US companies. When to see a chinese or indian CPU as a building block ?

3 million cpu at $100 a piece means 300 million revenue for intel. I am wondering this is a new president/administration show, similar as shenzhou-10 space craft.

ya, chinese's allwinner has the cpu now to do the job, but it would take 30 million of them, just too much hassel.

I wished a supercomputer could be made by putting CPUs together. I wouldn't like to see any Chinese CPU as a building block. Otherwise, who's going to buy Intel's chips?

Latest ranking at 33 Sunway BlueLight MPP, ShenWei processor SW1600 975.00 MHz, Infiniband QDR http://www.top500.org/system/177447 ShenWei SW1600 with DEC Alpha instruction set http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ShenWei One interesting fact is that the first 3 generations of SW processors were 2 years apart, with the latest SW-1600 becoming available in 2010, or 3 years ago. It is only ridiculous to assume there is no new development of the SW line of processor development.

3 million...that's the number of cores, not CPUs. It is unclear how many Intel CPUs are "Inside"...

Reliability can be a problem. There are much better ways to reach much bigger and less costly computing power. I some 2 years from now. This is a futile effort by some millioin of Chinese.

The government's spy agencies deserve one, as Homeland Security obviously need the latest technical tools to help fight terrorism.

There was a time when export of technologies, like those Xeon chips, was strictly controlled by the US Commerce Department. The schoolboy enthusiasm here at EE Times for "fastest" should be overwhelmed by committing actual JOURNALISM and posing the question of how a future nuclear adversary could get a hold of technology to enable the simulation of higher yield nuclear warheads.

all these peta flops make me dizzy.. And yet, we can not foresee the weather accurately...

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
