Maybe this is me being hopelessly ignorant
I understand that mainframes have their own very special use cases, modus operandi, feature sets, and so on and so forth, thoug don't ask me for specifics, I don't know. Still and all, considering all that, I'm left with a bit of a question.
What is this thing supposed to be doing other than heat the room?
Or are these MIPS figures not comparable to other, non-mainframe, MIPS figures? Anybody care to share a spot of light?
