A supercomputer with 1.0 Petaflops peak performance in single precision, designed and established by Institute of Process Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences, is introduced in this brief communication. A designing philosophy utilizing the similarity between hardware, software and the problems to be solved is embodied, based on the multi-scale method and discrete simulation approaches developed at Institute of Process Engineering (IPE) and implemented in a graphic processing unit
