I don't know Sridhar, PC's are pretty fruity these days.
I know it's like comparing apples and oranges, but Deep Blue sans
specialist chess hardware was rated at 11.38 Gigaflops (Linpack?
Double precision floating point? Only Wikipedia knows.....) My 8 core
MacPro downstairs allegedly churns through 81 GFlops/cpu in Linpack
"Dense Floating Point Operations". A figure often bandied about
regarding double precision floating point Linpack score on the Sony
Playstation 3 is 24 GFlops.
