Got a spare 9000 dollars? Then you might wanna purchase a supercomputer and lighten your workload…

The world’s first personal supercomputer was revealed to the UK public this weekend and scientists believe it could help them shorten research time and find cures faster because of the computer’s enhanced speed and power.

DR David Kirk, chief scientist at NVIDIA, the American company behind the new technology, said: “Pretty much anything that you do on your PC that takes a lot of time can be accelerated with this.

“These supercomputers can improve the time it takes to process information by 1000 times. If you imagine it takes a week to get a result (from running an experiment), you can only do it 52 times a year. If it takes you minutes, you can do it constantly, and learn just as much in a day.”

The computers clock in at around 250 times faster than your average home PC. Whilst the high price tag may initially deter home consumers – PC manufacturer DELL suggested they would soon be producing the computers for the general consumer market.
