A small chip-design company is unveiling a new processor it says will bring supercomputer performance to desktops and laptops within a year. Imagine running an Earth Simulator on a notebook.

The new chip is a parallel processor capable of performing 25 billion floating-point operations per second, or 25 gigaflops. [...] An ordinary desktop PC outfitted with six PCI cards, each containing four of the chips, would perform at about 600 gigaflops (or more than half a teraflop). [...] At this level of performance, the PC would qualify as one of the 500 most powerful supercomputers in the world.
