To make a point about China's interest in supercomputing, David Turek, IBM's vice president of deep computing, displayed a slide with a picture depicting a large construction site for a building that will house a massive computer.

Speaking at an IEEE-USA forum here last Thursday, Turek pointed to a photo of a supercomputing center being built in Shenzhen, China, and said, "That's a truck—that's a big truck, that's a big hole, and that's going to be a big building. And that's only the first building they are going to build there."

It's not just China that's rushing to build supercomputing centers, but Europe and Japan as well, said Turek and other forum participants.
