+ - University of Maryland Develops New Supercomputer

Submitted by CompMD
CompMD (522020) writes "Researchers at the University of Maryland have developed a new desktop supercomputer. It is capable of running 100 times faster than current desktops using 64 processors operating in parallel. The inventor sees this as a step in the right direction for computing: "The manufacturers have done an excellent job over the years of increasing a single processor's clock speed through clever miniaturization strategies and new materials," he noted. "But they have now reached the limits of this approach. It is time for a practical alternative that will allow a new wave of innovation and growth and that's what we have created with our parallel computing technology.""
