    Some cool stuff to read : http://techresearch.intel.com/articles/Tera-Scale/1421.htm

    5.7 GHz ... 1.81 Teraflops !

    This blew my mind : "ASCI Red was the first computer to benchmark at a teraflops (1996). That system used nearly 10,000 Pentium® Pro processors running at 200MHz and consumed 500kW of power plus an additional 500kW just to cool the room that housed it. Although not a general purpose computing device, this Teraflops Research Chip delivers 1.0 teraflops of performance and 1.6 terabits aggregate core to core communication bandwidth, while dissipating only 62W."

    Maybe C9 could do a video on how Microsoft is planning to use all these yummie new technologies coming out in the coming years?
