13 may 2011 in India was launched on the supercomputer SAGA–220 performance, 220 teraflops. This project is still actively used by the Indian space research organization (mainly for simulation of hydrodynamic processes). In total, the supercomputer has more than four hundred Quad-core Intel Xeon processors and the same amount of GPU NVIDIA Tesla 2070, connected by high-speed bus. It is noteworthy also that the SAGA–220 was designed by the Indian Space centre Vikram Sarabhai (Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre). Before his appearance the most productive computer of India was Eka HP with a peak performance of 132 teraflops.

Cars in the early stages of Formula 1, as a rule, was based on the longitudinal tubular frame and had an incredibly gluttonous inline eight-cylinder engine capacity of 350 HP and above.

It is worth noting that the history “Royal races” (informally styled as Formula 1) by the time of the opening of the world Cup counted for almost half a century, and since 1900, on a regular basis were held competitions for the international Cup – the prototype of the modern Grand Prix.
13 may 2014 Sony officially stopped the development of TVs with OLED screens. Instead, the company focused on producing LCD models. And the year before that Panasonic has discontinued the manufacture of plasma and has joined forces with Sony for the production of large OLED panels. In December 2013 was even presented prototypes, however, none of the joint initiative of the Japanese did not. Now both companies produce only LCD TVs.

About full decommissioning of the project, however, is not necessary to speak. Sony have kept their jobs all professionals working on OLED panels, so it is possible that they will be put into production in a few years when 4K resolution will become the lot of the budget models, and the production of organic LEDs will be cheaper.
