That there is one fast mosheen. So the Chinese built a machine from homegrown chips recently. Gee, wonder where the processor building prowess came from? Oh no, don't diss the Chinese--they make our war lovin' rapidly crumbling empire possible by buying our debt.

I would guess that the type of processor chosen would depend on what purpose the computer will be used for.

GPUs are very good at number crunching.
