Teraflop

Sounds like a failure, doesn't it? [grin]

But no - according to THIS article,, they've got Teraflop computing power now.

On a chip the size of a fingernail.

Money quote:

The first time teraflop performance was achieved was 11 years on the ASCI Red Supercomputer built by Intel for the Sandia National Laboratory.

That machine took up more than 2,000 square feet, was powered by almost 10,000 Pentium Pro processors, and consumed more than 500 kilowatts of electricity.


Welcome to the next revolution.
