A new data point for the computational acceleration. Here's an excerpt
from a story on Deep Blue's successor. URL below.

<excerpt>The technology is expected to appear in a prototype in the year
2001, IBM said. Plans call for the new, high-powered version of its
RS/6000 SP line to perform 30 trillion to 100 trillion calculations per
second, or up to 100 times today's computing power.
