The people's daily said Shanghai Supercomputer Centre has applied power to a Dawning 4000A machine.

The supercomputer can manage 11 teraflops, and the Communist Party organ hailed its bootup as the equivalent of a Three Gorges dam in the information technology era.

The machine will act as the hub of a Chinese computing grid and will act as a a provider of computing services in east China.

It would take some 3 NanoSeconds I gues...

I believe You missunderstood something above...its 11 TeraFlops (so thats calculating power),...and You probably thought 11 TeraBytes if I am right...

Btw...You have very interesting system...but..only 2 Gigs of RAM???...come onnnnnnnnnnn...buy at least 2 more...

Anyway...best wishes 4 all....enjoy.

That's what happens when you're tired and in a hurry. Thanks for the Kudos on my 'puter. I'll probably get another gig of Ram before Febuary. G'Day

Hahahaha...no problem...it may happen to anyone (being tired and in a hurry that is)...I am surely one of them...

Anddd...dont take my comments about more RAM too seriously...I was joking...I guess 2Gigs will do it for at least 4 more years ( 4 MORE YEARSSSSSSS,hahaha,where did I hear that,huh?)...as long as You arent in some graphic intensive business...only there 2Gigs wouldnt be enough... Rather wait for 512Mb Graphic cards to arrive...and buy one of those babies instead of more RAM...DOOM 3 will love You even more if You do that...

ENJOY!
