The Chinese chip designer behind the world's fastest supercomputer is eyeing wider commercial application for its chips, as the artificial-intelligence boom is spurring demand for processors that can deliver supercomputing power.


The National High Performance IC Design Center (Shanghai), which designed the semiconductors to power the Sunway TaihuLight supercomputer, is in discussions with domestic companies about the use of its chips in artificial-intelligence-enabled products.


Yao Li, technical director at the IC design center, said: "We are in discussions with both internet heavyweights and State-owned enterprises about possible cooperation."


The Sunway TaihuLight supercomputer at the Chinese Supercomputing Center in Wuxi, Jiangsu province, is the world's fastest supercomputer as of June, according to TOP500, an organization that ranks the 500 most-powerful computer systems twice a year.


The machine, which is more than twice as powerful as the previous winner, is powered by SW26010 processors, designed by the Shanghai IC design center.
