    because GPUs can offer more teraflops than CPUs why not use GPU only for simulation?

    Old one yes. If you're asking about the remastered version though you're having a laugh. There's no chance with a cooling system that required but one crane.

    Something has to feed those data hungry GPUs.

    The win would be better if they decide to use AMD GPU's as well, they more than well show they can handle it in general.

    Yeh well, GLaDOS runs on a potato. That's code optimisation right there.

    Correct me if my Google is wrong, but I believe Summit holds that title?

    Frontier doesn't even get delivered until 2021 and the bits for El Capitan are still in the Shopping Basket..... Neither AMD system actually counts until it has Windows up and running, a Speedtest.net result posted and an e-peen thread posted on the forums.

    Perlmutter supercomputer to wield 6000 next gen Nvidia GPUs

    i dont see how they will restrict overclocking more than they do with all pascal parts. most 1070 and 1080 hit 2015-2100 no matter what the configuration.

    Resurge weight loss supplemet works towards the ultimate goal of helping you shed the extra pounds that are due to age and related factors. The main culprit in the game that causes your body to gain weight is slow metabolism and the resulting fat storage. This formula increases metabolic activity so that your body can process fats.

    As soon as fats are used, as they are converted to energy in the case of metabolism, you can lose weight. In summary, this supplement helps trigger metabolism and fat burning in your body. Apart from that, this formula does two other things for your health.
