China have upgraded their super-computer named Tianhe-2 code name Milkyway-2 developed by China’s National Defense Technology become the number one position with a performance of 33.86 petaflop/seconds (quadrillions of calculation per second) on the Linpack benchmark. It was built by china’s national university of defense technology. Tianhe-2 will be used for Government Security Concerns, analysis .

US Banned Export High Performance Chips to China
In the year 2015 the United States ban the higher performance chips to china. Tianhe-2 is built with the Intel ivy bridge and Xeon phi high performance processors. The Department of Commerce said that exporting such technology is as security concerns to American National. Supercomputers is used for national security and scientific research. Many other governments using supercomputers for national calamity, weather reports, cybersecurity, and many more place supercomputing used .
