What do you base your scepticism on?

If it happens to really be the most powerful at this point in time, and it is proven, whats the problem? Because Murrica didn't do it?

If the Chinese have the money, they can obviously design their own processors. Why should they even have to bother with Intel? It is funny the arrogance most western nation still have, then are up in arms that a country without their influence or products can possibly achieve something without the hand of a western entity.

BTW, I do live in the US.

Indeed, China is a technologically advanced country and a major world economy. It's not really surprising that they're building supercomputers though it is impressive how they're topping the table.
