Iran has successfully built a supercomputer, Channel 2 [ISRAEL] reported Tuesday evening.THE NIE IS WRONG: THE IRANIAN THREAT IS GROWING.
While there is an international embargo on supplying the Islamic Republic with processor chips of the type required to build such a device, the Iranians have managed to get their hands on super-strength CPUs manufactured by Advanced Micro Devices, or AMD... from a middleman in one of the Arab countries in the Persian Gulf, perhaps the United Arab Emirates or Bahrain. ...
The Iranian supercomputer is expected to make the job of intelligence communities worldwide much harder ... it could retard the task of retrieving intelligence on military actions such as trajectories or targets of Iranian missiles.
Iran previously owned encrypting software sold to it by Switzerland, but the US managed to hack into the Swiss software. Consequently, the regime decided to invest in a domestic encryption program.
