Comment Isn't this just ASICs vs Generalized Processors? (Score 1) 496 496

Looking at the summary, we are comparing a one trick pony to a human. The one trick pony wins because it's algorithm applies to the particular problem. The human is still able to get up, walk around and hold a conversation outside the parameters of a confined topic.

An ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) is specifically tuned for one task, but don't try to use it for other things (unless it's a GPU). The same goes for this nice huge machine.

Oh, and can it play beer pong?

If money can't buy happiness, I guess you'll just have to rent it.
