Ask Dr. SETI ®
Is it theoretically possible now with the availability of 4 TeraFlop desktop computers (Tesla GPU processors) to write and run DSP programs that will reach far deeper under the noise than what is currently possible? Do you think it would make a large impact on Project Argus?

The Doctor Responds:
Rest assured, Eugene, that somebody will most certainly develop the required DSP interface devices in due course, and we will then avail ourselves of their capabilities. But, for now (at least in the Project Argus context), the new processors remain a solution in search of a problem.
