The US will maintain restrictions on the Chinese supercomputer industry.
Chinese Supercomputer: With chip sanctions
According to The Hill, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo said that owing to military considerations, the United States will not transfer its top-tier supercomputer chips to China. In the midst of escalating U.S.-China tensions, Raimondo recently visited Beijing where she stressed the country’s commitment to constraining China’s military power. She also talked about a cyberattack she suffered at the hands of a Chinese supercomputer and hackers.
In a recent appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Gina Raimondo reaffirmed the United States’ position on chip exports to China. Chuck Todd, the host, questioned if the United States could export its cutting-edge processors to China and what effect they would have on the armed forces of the People’s Republic. Raimondo retorted that the main goal is to restrict China’s military capability and Chinese supercomputer.
Raimondo stated, “We are trying to suffocate their military capacity. We won’t sell China the most advanced American chip and Chinese supercomputer they desire for their military capability on my watch, so if they feel that way, that shows our plan is succeeding.

Raimondo added that the U.S. would forgo providing China with advanced American chips needed to boost its military might, further underscoring the geopolitical aims. This choice fits nicely with the U.S.’s ongoing initiatives to keep a competitive edge in important technology fields like Chinese supercomputer.
Raimondo stated that her diplomatic trip to Beijing had been complicated by a cyberattack that may have been carried out by Chinese supercomputer espionage. Despite these challenges, she approached her conversation in Beijing with candor, addressing a range of American concerns, from national security to business and labor concerns. When discussing these crucial subjects with her Chinese counterparts, she didn’t mince words.
