IBM finds ally for supercomputer-on-a-chip

IBM and the University of Texas at Austin plan to collaborate on building a processor capable of more than 1 trillion calculations per second–faster than many of today’s top supercomputers–by 2010.

Prototypes are expected to be running in the lab by December 2005, capable of 32 billion operations per second, theoretically.
