The Tianhe-1A supercomputer uses 2,048 FeiTeng 1000 processors. Tianhe-1A has a theoretical peak performance of 4.701 petaflops. The FeiTeng-1000 is an eight-core processor based on the SPARC system and is used to operate service nodes on the Tianhe-1.
FeiTeng is third generation CPU from the YinHeFeiTeng (银河飞騰, YHFT) family. This CPU family has been developed by team directed by NUDT Prof. Xing Zuocheng. The first generation was an EPIC CPU, binary compatible with the Intel Itanium 2. The second generation, the FT64, was a system on a chip with CPU and 64-bit stream processor. FT64 were used in YinHe (银河) supercomputers as accelerators.
