    Everybody Meet HAL on Crack

    If you want to blow your mind go give this a look--> http://www.es.jamstec.go.jp/esc/eng/index.html

    It is called the Earth Simulator and it is the fastest computer in the world. It runs at 35.86 TeraFlops...

    That system is 1337.

    wow... just.. wow..

    hardware system configuration > http://www.es.jamstec.go.jp/esc/eng/...re/system.html

    The ES is a highly parallel vector supercomputer system of the distributed-memory type, and consisted of 640 processor nodes (PNs) connected by 640x640 single-stage crossbar switches. Each PN is a system with a shared memory, consisting of 8 vector-type arithmetic processors (APs), a 16-GB main memory system (MS), a remote access control unit (RCU), and an I/O processor. The peak performance of each AP is 8Gflops. The ES as a whole thus consists of 5120 APs with 10 TB of main memory and the theoretical performance of 40Tflops
    I'm asking Santa Claus if I can have this for Xmas

    The operating system running on ES is an enhanced version of NEC's UNIX-based OS called "SUPER-UX" that is developed for NEC's SX Series supercomputers.
    well there goes my theory that they needed all the processing power just to get ME to run for 20mins without crashing
