China's most notable supercomputer Sunway Taihu Light, housed at its east city Wuxi's National Supercomputer Center, has claimed top spot on a list of the world's fastest and most powerful computers for the third straight time.

ISC High Performance, an event evaluating high performance computing, networking and storage held in Frankfurt, Germany announced on June 19 that Sunway Taihu Light remains the world champion.

The supercomputer was first crowned in June last year, dethroning Guangzhou's Tianhe-2, according to TOP500's half-yearly rankings, while breaking the Guinness World Record for fastest supercomputer.

The Chinese research team from Wuxi's National Supercomputer Center demonstrated Sunway's innovative technology and applied achievements as the first Chinese supercomputer to consist of entirely domestically-manufactured components.
