What is Supercomputing About?

Size: many problems that are interesting to scientists and engineers can’t fit on a PC – usually because they need more than a few GB of RAM, or more than a few 100 GB of disk.

Speed: many problems that are interesting to scientists and engineers would take a very very long time to run on a PC: months or even years. But a problem that would take a month on a PC might take only a few hours on a supercomputer.
