Cray to use AMD's new 16-core chip to build an 11.5 petaflop supercomputer for science
This system, which will be capable of a peak performance of 11.5 petaflops when it is completed next year, will be built with 49,000 processors from Advanced Micro Devices, Cray said in its announcement Monday. A petaflop equals one quadrillion floating point operations per second.
Kinda puts new meaning in those "I'm a PC" t.v. ads.
upgrade the RAM, though. 4MB and no higher, from a starting 1MB.
TBH, in this day and age I'm shocked desktop computers aren't built like legos so when you need more computing power or memory you just snap in a new module, not replace the whole damn thing.
I remember some early Pentium processor upgrades costing $800-$1000 or more just for the chip.
I always felt they were cheap clones of Intel chips

you sure you aren't remembering cyrix or winchips?
swap out my Commodore-64 ROM just to get access to that extra 8K of ghost RAM hiding under it.
