The Technological Revolution and Time

Creative destruction at work. The new processor, by Intel, teraflop, is hella more powerful than the chip in your machine now.

"The first time teraflop performance was achieved was 11 years on the ASCI Red Supercomputer built by Intel for the Sandia National Laboratory.
That machine took up more than 2,000 square feet, was powered by almost 10,000 Pentium Pro processors, and consumed more than 500 kilowatts of electricity."

Only 11 years ago!
