From the historical perspective YES. When I worked on an array processor the 30MIPs capacity was quite high at the time ($250K) with today's basic laptops running at 3Ghz with Floating Point units and GPUs would blow right past that with ease.. Someday in the near future people will laugh at the "slow old" computers like this. I can only hope to see it!

This will be a very strong computer knowing it will have a 16 cores processor. [url=http://www.essaywriter.co.uk/services/marketing-essay-writing.aspx]marketing essay[/url] [url=http://www.essaywriter.co.uk/services/advertising-essay-writing.aspx]advertising essay[/url]

Will supercomputer today become a general device like PC at home in the future? From different articles, it seems many companies are putting more effort to boost the computing ability not only in the level of the core but the system architecture of supercomputing. Is it a gold mine as well?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
