    Is there a site that shows the comparative processing power of various super computers and how they compare to consumer computers?

    My wife was asking about gigaflops and super computers, and why couldn't she have one...

    So I was looking for statistics on the first gen Crays to see how they stacked up against the dual 1.25 G4s. But no luck...

    Any thoughts?

    I think that ol' Seymor Cray, once said "Amusing - I'm using an Apple G4 to simulate a Cray3" I can't remember what it was about exactly but I think it had to do with Apple's use of a Cray to simulate aspects of design a while back... naturally, Apple uses Apple today.

    :cool:

    it's apples and oranges

    it's hard to truly match up a mac against a pc accurately
