Supercomputers are simply amazing..........I bet the NSA has owned one of these for some time.....if they're just now releasing info to the public.....who knows what sort of power that they have on their hands right now...
Yeah, the military/government is always years ahead of the consumer in technology. The "New" technology Sprint and Verizon use (CDMA) was used for top secret information exchanged by the government from the seventies up until this last decade.
I bet they have things right now that would blow our minds, like the hydrogen engine, advanced cloaking devices, nano robots, flying saucers, time machines, CB radio linked to God and so forth....They have to ease these things out or there will be choas!!
That's a super powerful computer. I wonder what it's super Pi 32MB score is 0.00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 second. EDIT: LOL I'm dumb, super PI is single threaded...
It's only the best becaule of the Opterons in it!!
I've been wondering and maybe you guys can help. I heard our brains process 40,000,000,000 bits per second (2000-3000 we're aware of.) I also heard there are 8 bits in a byte. So that would be almost five gigs a second. What would that translate to in Flops? I know higher flops mean faster, but I'm not sure how it translates into bits/bytes per second.Edited by Keeng James - 6/9/08 at 10:15am
