Supercomputing

rubycodez writes “The Tianhe-1A system will be the last Chinese supercomputer to use imported Intel and AMD processors. By years end, China’s own 64 bit MIPS-compatible 65nm 8-core 1GHz version of the Godsen (Longsoon family) processors will be used, including 10,000 of them for the ‘Dawning 6000′ supercomputer. Yes, the chips can and usually do run GNU/Linux, but also can run FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and NetBSD.”
