computer software people in some secret hideaway with two massive Cray computers
scheming to bring American commerce to its knees.
The teraflops boundary is no different than advances that created electronic calculators (kiloflops), Cray computers
(megaflops), and last-generation vector supercomputers (Gflops).
Figure 3 shows the evolution of clock speed, number of processors, and aggregate computing power for Cray computers
over a 30-year period beginning with the CDC 6600.
