China to launch pre-exascale HPC this year, could be world’s most powerful

    The nation is set to maintain its lead in supercomputer rankings

    China is planning to launch a pre-exascale supercomputer this year, according to Xinhua, the official press agency of the People’s Republic of China.

    Zhang Ting, a researcher with the National Supercomputer Center in Tianjin, claims that the new system “will be 200 times faster and have 100 times more storage capacity than the Tianhe-1 supercomputer, China’s first petaflop supercomputer launched in 2010.” That could put it ahead of the United States’ upcoming Summit supercomputer, which was set to become the most powerful high performance computing (HPC) system in the world at launch.

    Data could one day be stored on molecules

      Billions of terabytes of data could be stored in one small flask of liquid, a group of scientists believe. The team from Brown University says soon it will be able to figure out a chemical-derived way of storing and manipulating mass-data by loading it onto molecules and then dissolving the molecules into liquids.
