With eight parallel rendering pipelines, industry leading 256-bit memory interface and 128MB of double data rate (DDR) memory, the RADEON 9800 PRO Mac Edition is capable of executing up to 8.4 billion instructions per second and delivering an astounding 21 GB/sec memory bandwidth.
The processor ran at 100,000 instructions per second, in comparison with the two billion instructions per second of today's microchips.
The GVPP crunches 20 billion instructions per second (compared to the mere millions of instruction per second of Pentium-class processors).
The IBM SP processes data at 690 billion instructions per second. When upgraded in September, the supercomputer will process weather data at 2.5 trillion instructions per second.
By about the year 2000, the benchmark will be a 40-million-transistor chip, implemented with a 0.25-[mu]m technology, that will have 4 MB of cache memory, operate at 250 MHz, receive instruction in 64-bit word lengths, and handle one billion instructions per second. Memory will consist of one-gigabit DRAMs designed using 0.15-[mu]m rules.
However, because subnanosecond cycles will be difficult, the performance of our largest machines will be on the order of a few billion instructions per second. We should always look at the absolute perfromance of uniprocessors, because if we can partition the problem, multiple processors may be used to gain even higher performance.
of Marlborough, Mass., received a three-year, $10.7 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to develop a new, massively parallel computer system that can execute 1 billion instructions per second.
Because he was traveling, he took along what he called "Hal Jr.," a demonstration unit that fits into a suitcase, and delivered a paltry 640 billion instructions per second.
