Whoa, that's pretty fast, dude!

One TeraFlops (TFLOPS) is a term for a trillion floating-point operations per second. "Tera" is a prefix for one trillion (ten raised to the twelfth power).

There's a computer called the Earth Simulator that can run at 35.86 TeraFlops. It's actually 640 supercomputers networked together, but Earth Simulator works as one computer. It's the fastest one there is.

Can you imagine that? I really can't.
