In Russia it is said that chickens are milked, and cows carry eggs. (A mockery of those who believe ridiculous rumors.)

U.S. says it overtakes China to have world’s fastest supercomputer…

WASHINGTON, June 8 (Xinhua) — The U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) said on Friday the country reclaimed the world’s most powerful supercomputer. The computer named “Summit” has a peak performance of 200,000 trillion calculations per second or 200 petaflops, breaking the record of China’s top-ranking Sunway TaihuLight with processing capacity of about 125.4 petaflops, according to ORNL. It is about a million times faster than a typical laptop. For certain scientific applications, it will also be capable of more than 3 billion billion mixed precision calculations per second, or 3.3 exaops.

This kind of puts things in perspective: The unfathomable thought that one day our cellphone may be as powerful as “Summit” and held in our hand is not really that far-fetched…

“Too far-fetched to believe, too obvious to ignore.” – Nicholas Sparks

Better yet: We will all have a “Summit” in our heads………

The future is going to be such a ride…
