New computer

download

The Doctor bought a new computer to observe our time behind his giant nest this year. It was made in China and it is called Tianhe-2. However, the Doctor likes to call it “heavenly River or Milky Way.”  He calls it his supercomputer and won’t let anyone fool with it except himself.  It can perform 33.86 petaflops (quadrillions of calculations per second) With 16,000 computer nodes, each comprising two Intel Ivy Bridge Xeon processors and three Xeon Phi chips.

The female H. Saipan that lives with him in his giant nest on the bank of the North River was not happy about the purchase.  She tried to cancel the credit card transaction, but the Chinese government would have nothing to do with that.  Anyway, the Doctor is happy, even though he dipped into their retirement savings.

About Harriett Raptor

Her understanding of mathematics and logic are beyond Homo sapiens’ current comprehension. Harriett is a thinker, a wise osprey, especially distinguished for her expertise in the problems facing Homo sapiens.
