Hi Logan, I must admit I have never heard of a Duron 7000 @ 10,000 Mhz :) (are you referring to some sort of network consisting of AMD's Duron microprocessors?) The current production CMOS technologies for manufacturing single processors do not yet achieve these clock speeds as yet - current .13 micron and .16 micron CMOS technologies achieve clock speeds of between 1 and 5 GHz. However,effective MIPS equivalent to speeds like that can be "achieved" with multiple/parallel/distributed procs either in hardware or software mode. A good distributed kernel patch for linux that creates a distributed node from any hardware you can get your hands on, is called Mosix and is free to download. For links to super-computing I reffer you to http://computer.org/parascope/ , part of the IEEE site. Have fun, Yiannis.
