HP Unveils New Supercomputer Up To 8,000 Times Faster Than Existing PCs

Announced two years ago, HP’s supercomputer "The Machine" is meant to be the world’s first demonstration of memory-driven computing. Calculations will rely on memory rather than traditional processors.

The Machine prototype that has been shown is proof of concept of the real world applications of this amazing technology. The business focused side of the corporation; HP Enterprise stated that in simulations the machine has shown speed up to 8,000 times faster than your conventional computers. If this is really true then this is a huge leap in this field of technology. Don’t get too excited though because the machine is still many years away from its market release. Plus it will be targeting mostly high-end servers that companies like Facebook use and not your day to day PCs.
