AMD showed off what it dubbed a "Teraflop in a Box" system to hacks in San Francisco today.

The single-system, Accelerated Computing computer runs Windows XP Professional on an AMD Opteron dual-core processor combined with two AMD R600 Stream processors.

Read the full story at The Inquirer:

The box is capable of performing more than 1 trillion floating-point calculations per second using a general "multiply-add" (MADD) calculation, the firm boasted.

It reckons the system is capable of a ten-fold performance increase over today’s high-performance server platforms, which deliver approximately 100 billion calculations per second.
