    Ok, the chips are not made in the USA so the ChiComs will not get them one way or the other?

    Nuclear worries stop Intel from selling chips to Chinese supercomputers - Apr. 10, 2015

    Intel and Nvidia have been blocked from selling chips to four Chinese supercomputer centers because the U.S. government has determined those computers are used for "nuclear explosive activities."
    TianHe-1A and TianHe-2 are among the world's fastest supercomputers. They both run almost entirely on Xeon processors made by Intel. TianHe-1A also uses chips from Nvidia.

    You are right, they can still acquire the chips. The "block" is strictly PR.
