China's first personal high-performance computer (PHPC100) makes debut in Tianjin. It is the China's smallest supercomputer, only twice the size of a normal desktop computer, but its computing speed is 40 times faster than a normal computer.

The computer has already been formally used at Zhejiang University, for accomplishing heavy computing tasks in scientific research fields such as chemical material, aerospace and aviation.

The invention of the PHPC100, by the Dawning Information Industry Co. at Tianjin Base, signifies that supercomputers, previously a privilege in high-end research, are no longer exclusive to major fields such as defense-related scientific research.

As the computer is specifically designed for use in an office-environment, it only requires a normal 220V of power and the noise it generates is equal to that of a wall-mounted air conditioner.

It perfectly suits the scientific computing, data analysis, graphic simulation and other powerful computing needs of university laboratories or scientific research institutions.

At the same time, it solves problems common in traditional high-performance computer clusters, including power consumption, space occupancy and heat dissipation.
