The Inquirer heard the upcoming ATI Radeon X1900 XTX (R580), which will likely be launched on January 24th, will do a staggering 1.1 teraflops.

But as the eyes are connected intimately to the brain and as graphics chips provide eyecandy where CPUs cannot, it seems to us the brain-microprocessor link has to be downgraded.
