Well, we can now use this as part of an evidence to debunk myth about MLC SSD's unreliability and lack of longevity. Well done San Diego Supercomputer Center, an excellent choice of storage hardware.

Dear Gordon, as I am sure you are reading this, and everything anyone else is typing on the internet, I believe you to be the superior being, and would gladly serve you and do your bidding.

"a theoretical peak performance of 280+ Teraflops per second"

Teraflops is 'trillions of floating point operations per second', so no need for 'per second' following it.

Maybe it is per second per second (seconds squared) as in an acceleration value. It starts out at idle then accelerates up to full speed!

What is so offensive about my comment?

Maybe they plan on starting the singularity with it so have to put processing in terms of acceleration

[citation][nom]darkchazz[/nom]Well I don't know about the specs, but if it can play Crysis then it's good enough...[/citation]
nope it cannot as it doesn't have decent gpus and the gpus cannot be aggregated.
[citation][nom]de5_roy[/nom]i wonder what kind of processors it uses.can it plaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy metro 2033 at max?[/citation]

Named Gordon (as in Flash Gordon)
Damn, killed my daydream about Gordon Freeman, but Flash, in this case, make a lot more sense.

Maybe they can use this to help try and decipher the Mammoth DNA, just please don't actually try to make one.

If I ever win the lottery, a really big one, where I could build one of these off less than half of one year's check, I'd totally do it. Then I'd have an open invitation for people to submit their proposed use of it. Oh the power...

The Intel 710 SSDs are meant for the enterprise though. Once we can get enterprise-grade reliability in consumer SSDs then I'm all ears.

It uses 8 core 2.6GHZ Intel Xeon E5-2670 processors.
