AMD demonstrates accelerated computing solution that breaks teraflop barrier

AMD has showcased a single-system, Accelerated Computing platform that breaks the teraflop computing barrier and organizations are ultimately expected to be able to apply this technology to a wide range of scientific, medical, business and consumer computing applications.

At a press event in San Francisco, AMD demonstrated a "Teraflop in a Box" system running a standard version of Microsoft Windows XP Professional that harnessed the power of AMD Opteron dual-core processor technology and two next-generation AMD R600 Stream Processors capable of performing more than one trillion floating-point calculations per second using a general "multiply-add" (MADD) calculation.
