3 trillion times/second! This domestic chip computing power is cattle

Shenwei 26010 debuts at the first China Independent Brand Exhibition to help the development of supercomputers and domestic large aircrafts, and will be commercially available during the year.

The staff demonstrated the upcoming commercial "Shenwei 26010" chip.

It silently boosts supercomputers and large planes

In front of the National Super Computing Wuxi Center, a 1-inch chip was quietly placed in the center of the booth. Don't underestimate the chip. It's the chip used by the supercomputer, the Sunway Taihu Light. "with its peak computing power of 12.5 billion times per second and its continuing computing power of 930 billion times per second, the Shenwei Taihu Light supercomputer has been ranked number one in the world's supercomputing rankings several times in a row." Wang Qiong, director of the center's training department, told reporters.

What kind of concept is this computing power? "The one-minute computing capacity of this system is equivalent to 7.2 billion people worldwide using the calculator to calculate continuously for 32 years; using the mainstream notebook computers or personal desktops produced in 2017 as a reference, it is equivalent to 2 million ordinary computers. Computational ability.” Wang Qiong said that the C919 large aircraft, the “Temple” series of research and development tests, this system has been silently help.

It is a self-designed and produced domestic chip

Wang Qiong said more than 40, 000 "Shenwei 26010" chips were used in "Light of the Taihu Lake." the computing power of this chip can reach 3 trillion times per second, "Wang said.

"this is our own design and production of domestic chips. At the time of the first victory of the Light of Taihu Lake, the International TOP500 Organization commented that China remained first on the 47th issue of the International TOP500 Organization by virtue of a completely China-based design. A new system built from a manufactured processor. " Wang Qiong told reporters, "graphics processing and other chips used to use card form, its large-scale assembly, electricity." In addition, PCE as a communication interface, will also cause bottlenecks. This chip makes the operation control core and the operation core in one chip, solves both problems. "

It will be put into commercial use this year

Wang Qiong revealed that the "Shenwei 26010" chip will be put into commercial use this year. We have developed a compact design based on its designserverIt has been completed and will be mainly provided to companies that consider data security. At present, some companies have consulted us. ”

For those who are not familiar with the personal computer and other areas. Wang Qiong said, "Currently it will not, after all, it also needs an ecosystem to support."

Intercontinental EMU concept car debuted

At the CRRC booth in China, spotlights hit the mainland's debut EMU concept car.

The Chinese CRRC staff introduced that although it is a concept car, its design concept is already obvious. “The speed can reach 400 km/h, which means that from Beijing to London, it takes only 18 hours to sit on the intercity EMU.” The difference is that the EMU is divided into two levels. The entire body of the head car is composed of transparent glass. The upper floor is a comfortable sofa area and the lower floor is a bar counter. Behind the carriage is also two layers, above the manned, the following shipments.

The staff member stated frankly that there are still many challenges for the implementation of this inter-regional EMU. "The first part is the orbital part. China and other countries have different gauges, so either the train body is adapted to the orbit or the orbital aspect is changed."

Another challenge is climate change. Intercontinental EMUs travel across different continents and the temperature has changed dramatically. This also requires more R&D to meet various climatic conditions.

CR929 is expected to fly before and after 2025

At the booth of China Commercial Aircraft Co., Ltd., aircraft models such as the CR929 and C919 are all in sight.

According to relevant data from China COMAC, CR929 is a Sino-Russian joint-developed wide-body passenger aircraft project. The technical indicators are aligned with the current Boeing 787. It has 280 seats and a range of 12,000 kilometers. The amount of advanced composite materials will exceed 50%.

CR929 aircraft basic code name is "CR929-600", shortened type "CR929-500", extended type "CR929-700", to meet the needs of large and medium passenger aviation market.

According to reports, CR929 is still in the early stage of development and is expected to fly before and after 2025.
