Pi computation record broken with desktop PC

Posted on Tuesday, January 05 2010 @ 17:10:35 CET by


Fabrice Bellard has broken the Pi computation record, by calculating Pi to just under 2.7 trillion decimal digits he broke the previous record by over 120 billion digits. What makes this record so special is that it was achieved with a regular sub-2000EUR desktop PC, and not with a multi-million euro supercomputer. The system features the Intel Core i7 940 (2.93GHz) processor, 6GB DDR3 memory, and five Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1.5TB HDDs for a total storage capacity of 7.5TB. The computation of Pi took 131 days, and backups were done using 2TB Seagate Barracuda LP HDDs.
