China's new supercomputer is five times sharper than America's super-hot.

The organization Top 500 has presented a new one on the list of the world's most powerful computers.

It's called Titan and ports in third place after last year's one, the Chinese Tianhe-2.

The uniqueness of the new supercomputer one is that it is completely built with Chinese processors, unlike the Tianhe-2, which use processors from Intel.

But in April 2015 stopped the US Department of Commerce export of high-performance processors to China when the country was alleged to have used the Tianhe-2 in the nuclear context, writes The Verge.

Then there were two to Swedish computers listed as both found at the National Supercomputer Center in Linköping.
