The only info there was about that image:

The Cray-2 supercomputer circa 1987. Packs about all the computing power of a modern iPad.

You know what most people had in 1987? Probably a DOS system running on a 286 or 386. An iPad is would have been a supercomputer then. Also, that machine had an absurd amount of memory bandwidth for the era. That is one reason why it could probably still beat an iPad on most workloads.

I had an Amiga 1000. And it was better than anything we have today.

Only on the recent build of version 1809 of Win10 which hasn't been formally released.


And the setting to stop that behavior has not been added to preferences yet.
