The high-performance computer "Dawning 6000," which will have a computing speed over 1,000 trillion operations per second, will adopt the Chinese-made general processor Loongson for the first time as its core component. This is according to the Dawning Information Industry Company.

"Dawning 6000" is currently jointly developed by the Institute of Computing Technology under the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Dawning Information Industry Company.

Li Guojie, chairman of Dawning Information Industry Company and director and academician of the Institute of Computing Technology, said research and development of the Dawning 6000 is expected to be completed in two years. By then, Chinese-made high-performance computers will achieve two major breakthroughs: first, adopting domestic-made central processing units (CPUs) will be technically obstacle-free; second, the existing cluster-based system structure of high-performance computers will be changed once the computing speed reaches 1,000 trillion operations per second.
