Submission + - Petaflops? DARPA wants quintillion-speed computers (networkworld.com)

Dubbed extreme scale computing, such machines are needed DARPA says to "meet the relentlessly increasing demands for greater performance, higher energy efficiency, ease of programmability, system dependability and security."
