Made in US, not China

I’m sure you read that China has the fastest meanest, super computer, Tianhe-2,

But it’s largely made in the US, much of Tianhe-2’s gubbins, including many of its processors, come from Titan’s homeland. Only one in eight of its 3.2m processing cores is “made in China”, according to Jack Dongarra, an editor of TOP500, though that is a vast improvement from Tianhe-1, which carried no Chinese processors. Titan and its ilk may stand beneath the Milky Way. But without them, it seems, Tianhe would collapse. http://www.economist.com/blogs/babbage/2013/06/supercomputers
