The Dawning 6000, a high-performance server expected to be launched using Loongson's domestically-made general-purpose processor as its core component for the first time. This is according to the Dawning Information Industry Company.

Dawning high-performance computers have always used CPUs made by Intel or AMD. The company said that the utilization of the Loongson processor in the Dawning 6000 supercomputer is still in the verification phase. The processor that will be used in the computer is a third-generation product of Loongson. The type of Loongson processors to be installed in each computer is still under discussion.

If everything goes according to plan, the Dawning 6000 with a computing speed of 1,000 trillion operations per second will be launched in 2010 and will adopt a completely independently-designed processor with complete intellectual property rights.

Li Jun, President of Dawning Information Industry Company, stressed that although the computing capacity of an individual Loongson processor is inferior to current mainstream Intel and AMD products, the overall performance of Dawning 6000 will not be weaker since the high-performance computer will use a large number of Loongson processors for parallel computing.
