[Objective] Based on the data of TOP100 China's high performance computer rankings published in November 2020, this paper makes an in-depth analysis of the current development status of high performance computers in China from the overall performance, manufacturers, industry status, and many other aspects. [Results] The average Linpack performance of TOP100 in China continues to be higher than those of the international TOP500, and the threshold for entry performance of TOP100 still exceeds that of TOP500. Dell built a new machine and makes itself a member in the TOP100 list, which broke the record that all systems in the list are domestic in recent two years. Lenovo is the champion in terms of number of systems in TOP100. The positions of the three strong hegemonies, Lenovo, Sugon, and Inspur, are unchanged and will be maintained and strengthened in the near future. [Conclusions] According to the performance data of the nineteenth ranking list, this paper analyzes and predicts the development trend of high-performance computers in China. Based on the new data, we believe that machines with Exaflops peak performance will appear between 2021 and 2022.
