Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has created a machine capable of doing the unthinkable. In fact, it´s capabilities not only sound impossible, they sound fictional. By combining traditional CPUs with graphical processing units (GPUs), the Titan Supercomputer capable of spitting out 20 petaflops, making it 10 times more powerful than ORNL´s previous Jaguar supercomputer. For the uninitiated, a petaflop, says...
