Does anyone have a history of the terafloppage? We went up from 160 to 170 in one month, which is roughly 6% per month. Cool fact: at this rate we're expected to double every year, despite what some people might suggest. This is on par with computing power in general.

I've been keeping an eye on it since we first hit 100 TFLOPS; that was on 2012-12-13. We hit 150 right around the beginning of June, 160 in September, and now 170 about a month after that.

If you look a few posts back up the thread, you'll see where ATH created a graph of 30-day TFLOPS since the transition to PrimeNet v5 in October 2008. Perhaps he might be able to provide us with an updated graph?

I'm 0.03% of that. Cool.

We blew by 180 this morning, briefly touching 185!

And there goes 190 (actually 191)! Wow!

And now 203 and some change! Congratulations GIMPS on reaching one-fifth of a petaflop!

If anyone somehow has doubts about compound interest, you can keep watching the TFLOP/s number go up and observe the rate. When I joined a bit less than a year ago, we were around 150. It took more than fifteen years to get the first three fifties, and the fourth came in eight months.

I predict > 350 TFLOP/s by the end of 2014.

What physical mechanism do you propose to account for the "compound interest" effect? I can't think of any. My guess is that by the end of 2014, we would see something like 210 TFLOPS sustained.

In what way is computing power increasing linearly? Computing power has been doubling every x years since the day they were conceived. (x is roughly 18 months actually)

Supercomputers since the nineties

214.5 TFLOP/s now.
