US Banned Export High Performance Chips to China
In year 2015 United States ban the higher performance chips to china . Tianhe-2 is built with the Intel ivy bridge and xeon phi high performance processors . The Department of Commerce said that exporting such technology is as security concerns to American National . Supercomputer are used to national security and scientific research . Many other government using supercomputers for national calamity , weather reports , cyber security and many more place super computing used .
