Distributed processing, space telescopes and super-computer speeds
I read that IBM sold a super-computer called Summit in June 2018 that could perform 200 Trillion transactions per second.
How many average Windows laptops are need to rival that kind of power?
And if that average Windows laptop is used in a business environment, what kind of hardware utilization is there to:
1) Run Windows
2) Perform ordinary office uses, like email, word processing, running a virtual terminal?
Secondly, what can you tell me about the processing power of a distributed model where thousands of PC's perform calculations when it detects idle time?
There is a famous space telescope which does this. Please remind me of the name of that system.
