"Russia Adopts Intel's Xeon-Phi Supercomputer"
Russia may not be allowing the U.S. to adopt its babies anymore, but it is allowing its fledgling supercomputer facilities to adopt Intel's Xeon Phi. The Russian Academy of Science, for instance, is planning a 10 petaFLOPS supercomputer using Xeon Phi cores, ramping up from its 580 teraFLOP prototype today:
