Full specs..

quoting:

http://www.netlib.org/utk/people/JackDongarra/PAPERS/tianhe-2-dongarra-report.pdf

# achieved 30.65 petaflops out of a theoretical peak of
# 49.19 petaflops, or an efficiency of 62.3% of theoretical
# peak performance taking a little over 5 hours to complete.

17MW for just compute or 24MWs including column..

cheers,
Chris
