Another generation is on the horizon.
wait I thought the Chinese had the fastest hence they will beat the shit out of us in this field? oh and the gop made it possible?
So Rdean said, and 94% of scientists agree with him.
or so he thinks
They're using Xboxes as their CPU, amiright?
Nah, 6502 chips in massive parallel configuration.
So we are playing catch up with the Chinese now?
I think that you are all missing the point. The Chinese intend to compete with every advanced nation in every field. And they are training far more engineers and scientists than about anybody else.
they can train 4-1, its been tried...they lack several key ingredients, when it comes to 'supremacy' as all totalitarian nations have discovered.....
This looks like it'll be a barn-burner:
World’s most powerful supercomputer to be unveiled in 2011
You read what the Chinese are trying to do in the realms of engineering and education, it makes you weep.
US School math, computing, engineering and related schools are mostly turning out foreign students. US students can't be bothered. The halls and cafeteria of the school I go to are full of varios shades reading texts on calculus, trigonometry, electrical engineering etc. All the palefaces are playing farm ville or Mafia wars.
