After 70 years of technological advancements have lead us to a point where pocket-sized devices now pack enough computing power to put to shame supercomputers of old. A recently published infographic by Experts Exchange shows some intriguing comparisons between supercomputers, consoles, smart watches and smartphones.
For example, the current top dog on the supercomputer front, the Chinese Tianhe-2 is capable of a staggering 33.86 PFLOPS (peta floating-point operations per second), which would take 18,400 Sony PlayStation 4s consoles to match.
The Samsung Galaxy S6, which at the moment is the smartphone with the highest raw performance, is more than five times as powerful as the PlayStation 2, which was released in 2000. More impressively though, the 138g phone's 34.8 GFLOPS are 2,900,000 times as much as the 12,000 FLOPS the IBM 704 room-sized supercomputer could produce back in 1954.
