The world's first personal supercomputer dubbed “Tesla personal supercomputers”, which is 250 times faster than the average PC, has been unveiled. The gadget's power will allow doctors to process the results of brain and body scans much more quickly. This would allow them to tell patients within hours instead of days whether they have a tumour.
Tesla personal supercomputers will cost between £4,000 and £8,000 and look much like an ordinary PC. These supercomputers can improve the time it takes to process information by 1,000 times. They went on sale to British customers yesterday and will initially be sold to universities and to the scientific and research community.
The PC maker Dell, however, said that it would soon be mass producing them for the general consumer market.
