Flash Gordon computer
Mine is on order. Yours?

Say hello to Flash Gordon; the world's first flash-powered supercomputer will come online in the San Diego Supercomputer Centre in January.

It's being built by Appro International using Intel 710 flash drives and cost a bargain basement (this is supercomputing budget land) $20 million for 280+ teraflops, 36 million IOPS, and 48th place in the top 50 supercomputer list. SDSC thinks the 36 million IOPS number makes it the fastest supercomputer in the world in terms of I/O operations.

Finally... a computer that will run both Solitaire and Hearts!

Wow! I'm not sure I have the space for such a machine. hehe

Totally misread that.

When I saw 'flash-powered supercomputer', I assumed Flash as in Adobe. I had a horrible mental image for a moment.
