I just saw an article about a company, Analog Devices Lyric Labs based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, that is creating an analogbased dataprocessing integrated circuit. They say this is ideal for computing FFT's:

Because of its efficiency and inherent design, however, it's especially ideal for computing fast Fourier transforms (FFTs), and more particularly the discrete Fourier transform, a ubiquitously used mathematical algorithm in digitalsignal processing.

I wonder, would it be easy to use something like this for Prime95? Would it speed up calculations? Do you think we could convince them to send a sample to George?
NASA is looking into various ways they can use this technology. You can see the article here:
