So, tera-scale computing is basically taking the computing environment we have now and moving it into that, I'll call it a super supercomputing-type arena, where we have computers that, in the past, like I said before, filled buildings. Well, we want to take those and put them on a single die, and then we want to create buildings worth of computing out of those. It's just taking it up to the next level; computing within the tera-, the exa-, the petaflop-type regime, where we're doing billions upon billions -- billions times billions -- of time-computational units within one second, just a staggering amount of computational power.
