A US supercomputer called Roadrunner (commissioned in 2008) has been switched off by the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. For being too old. And has now been replaced with faster and more efficient supercruncher. Story here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-21993132 Please check this intel link before voting. I was surprised to see that ALL OF MY PCs are in fact 2008 designs or older. (Even though my workstation and CPUs were bought later, and have been upgraded, the design was actually 2008) CPUs older than 2008 incl. Core 2 Duo like E8xxx Core 2 Quad like Q6xxx, even Q9xxx etc. Atom N2xx Atom Z5xx Xeon E54xx (shit, that includes by CPU!) How old is your CPU?
