  • 10 Tf from a single core

    not part of a company so to speak, but I am deep in to Hardware Engineering, Quantum Mechanics and Electronics with Qualifications in all 4. I have a design that makes use of Molecular Computing and Electronics and will allow for speeds of up to 10.71 Terra flops per second. That is faster then Nvidea's best Tesla Card. the core size itself is no bigger then the size of a 555 chip W 1.7cm, L 2.42cm, D 0.3cm
