Solving divisions by zero ?

I thought this was used to run Crysis. tongue.gif

That aside, I think it's interesting that BOINC provides only 10.456 petaflops average over 24 hours.

edit for clarifying BOINC average computational power.

They've been doing construction for this supercomputer for quite some time here. There is a building they've been constructing outside that has 8 air conditioners on top of it that are all about the size of 3 or 4 cars.

I bet the Chinese supercomputer is listing their single precision flops instead of double precision flops anyways. Probably bought 10,000 Fury X cards and ghetto wired them together and added up all the flops and called it their own lol.
