Argonne National Laboratory belonging to the Ministry is charged with developing Aurora supercomputer, the next most powerful "electronic brain" on the planet will be located 40 km west of Chicago (Illinois).

It is assumed, that the speed of Aurora’s operating will be 5-7 times greater than most fast current analogues in the world.

- Aurora supercomputer will contribute to the further development of low-carbon energy and enhance our fundamental understanding of the universe, - said a statement released by the Deputy Minister.

The creation of the supercomputer, the ministry explained, is aimed to provide opportunities for the United States to compete in this area with other countries and providing guarantees to support the economic and national security.

In particular, Aurora will be able to assist in the development of materials that will create a more powerful and efficient batteries and solar panels.

The computer is also intended to be used in biological studies and researches on renewable energy.

To use the supercomputer for such purposes, it should be ready for operation in 2019.
 
Now, the world's fastest supercomputer according to the TOP500 lists for June 2013, November 2013, June 2014 and November 2014, is Chinese Tianhe-2 or TH-2 - a 33.86-petaflops supercomputer located in Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou, China. It was developed by a team of 1,300 scientists and engineers.

Plans of the Sun Yat-sen University in collaboration with Guangzhou district and city administration on doubling its computing capacities were stopped by the US government by refusing Intels application for an export license for the CPUs and CoPUs. As reported by Wall Street Journal analysts this is not only a blow to Intel and their suppliers sales and a drag to US information technology development but concurrently a boost for Chinas own processor-development- and -production-industry.
