China has installed the country's first domestically-made supercomputer capable of doing 1,000 trillion operations per second. Tianhe-1 is scheduled to begin operations this month, according to the National Supercomputing Centre in Tianjin.

The supercomputer, developed by the National University of Defence Technology in 2009, enabled China to become only the second country after the US capable of developing a device with a speed of 1,000 trillion operations per second.
