Hi all,

According to http://www.vrworld.com/2015/04/07/usa-shocks-intel-ban-on-china-xeon-supercomputers/,
the US government has placed the 4 major China Supercomputer Centers
on the “Denial List,” which prevents “high technology from the USA” to
be sold to these sites. On claims that they are believed to be engaged
in activities related to nuclear explosives.

I guess it means no Phi-based Tianhe-3 in the near future, and a clear
path for China to fund the development of their own lines of

If that's confirmed, that would be a big loss for Intel, both in the
short and longer terms. That after Summit, that looks like a lot to
take in.
