BEIJING, July 1 (Xinhua) -- A 3D model of China's supercomputer Tianhe-3 made its debut at the fourth World Intelligence Congress, which was held online in north China's Tianjin Municipality, Science and Technology Daily reported Wednesday.

The National Supercomputer Center (NSCC) in Tianjin exhibited the 3D model of the exascale supercomputer and its wide application in people's life.

The supercomputer can be used for global climate change simulation and prediction; cosmic evolution tracing; warning and forecast of fog and haze; seismic data processing; oil exploration; gene sequencing, and brain science, said the report.

As the first supercomputing center in China, the NSCC in Tianjin is not only where China's first petaflop supercomputer the Tianhe-1 is located, but also responsible for developing China's new generation of the exascale supercomputer the Tianhe-3.
