Your Supercomputer

What we hold in our hands.

While we’re waiting for the iPhone 8 (a.k.a. iPhone X), here’s a reminder that the iphone 4 was already equivalent in processing power to the Cray 2 supercomputer (1985). The Apple Watch was already twice as powerful. The iPhone 7 (A10 Fusion CPU) is running on par with the CM-2 supercomputer at just below 7 Gigaflops.

We all have supercomputers in our pockets. Let’s use them for something super.
