Shoot, somewhere around http://www.intel.com/pressroom there's a story
about the new benchmarks in from the 9200-node pentium pro supercomputer
at Sandia National Labs. A linpack benchmark got it 1.34 teraflops, a
25% increase from the historic Dec 1996 benchmarking that first pole
vaulted the 1 teraflop level.
9200 200-MHz Pentium Pros, 573 Gig of system meory, and 2.25 Terabytes
of disk storage.
Just think of the SuperDuperPornoWebPage we could run if we had one...
The idea of trying to commit suicide over a box of vibrating dildos with
a tape gun held at my temple struck me as almost comic.
