It's interesting that on the list of the 500 most powerful computers in the world the microprocessors in all but 3 of the machines were made by Intel AMD or IBM, all are companies based in the USA. The three exception were number 37, 42 and 383 on the list which had Japanese microprocessors. Nobody used Chinese processors including the Chinese.
