[Context] Theoretical analysis, experimental observation and computational simulation are the three major methods of scientific research. High performance computing, as one of the main symbols of a country's comprehensive national strength, has important strategic significance.[Methods] This article focuses on the development of high-performance computing, the construction of high performance computer environments, and the development of computing applications in China, which reviews the development history and main achievements of high-performance computing in the past 20 years . Furthermore, the deployment and progress of China's key R&D projects in high-performance computing during the current "13th Five-Year Plan" period are introduced.[Conclusions] Based on the analysis of the current high-performance computing development situation, the author proposes and discusses that strengthening the construction of new-generation computing infrastructure and applications.

Key words: high performance computing, computing infrastructure, computing applications, software foundation platforms
