Well, the PS3 for example can handle around 1.8 terraflops I think...

"Jargon for 1 trillion floating point operations (computations) per second"

Nothing about GB's... Your thinking of terabytes, which is 1024 GB

Oh ok. That makes much more sense than it equaling 100GB. That's a lot of operations btw. I don't think a human being could do that many in a lifetime (assuming that's all they do and don't sleep)
