Supercomputing

+ - Mobile Phones Vs Supercomputers of the past->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The recently published Top 500 list of the world's fastest supercomputers is based on the Linpack benchmark developed decades ago by Jack Dongarra. This same test has been ported to Android mobile phones which means that we can compare the performance of our phones against that of the supercomputers of the past. For example, a tweaked Motorola Droid can hit 52 Mflop/s which is more than 15 times faster than the CPUs used in the 1979 Cray-1."
