5.95 KW/TFlop

The next world's biggest scientific computer will be yielding 500 teraflops and consume 3 MW of power. Which comes out at approximate 6KW per TFlop. Which is much worse than the IBM BlueGene (if they delivered the performance envisioned). We need a Moore's law for power per operation but it seams we're going nowhere as far as power use is concerned.
