The fully China-built supercomputer is twice as fast as Tianhe-2 with a peak performance of 125 Petaflops per second, regular performance of 93 PFlops per second, and an energy efficiency rate of 6.05 GFlops per Watt. Three Sunway-TaihuLight applications — earth system modeling, ocean surface wave modeling and the microstructure of titanium alloy modeling — have been included on the shortlist for the German Innovation Award (Gottfried Wagener Prize) which acknowledges the world’s top supercomputing applications. Operator of the Sunway TaihuLight system is the National Supercomputing Center in Wuxi
