Actually the brain performs computations pathetically slow, being clocked at roughly 12-15Hz in rest and 30-50Hz under heavy load and having a "wire speed" of roughly 100-120 m/s (as compared to 3GHz and 300,000km/s in a computer).

Could you post a link to where you saw this because i'm certain that i read the brain is like an 18000MHz or more processor and the reason it can't perform certain mathematical calculations very fast is because of the body systems it manages.

*edit* make that the brain is over a 1,680,000 MHz processor and does up to/more than 100,000,000 MIPS so there is no way the brain is nearly that slow.

 


Are you the kind of person that considers a 6 core processor with each core running at 3 GHz to be the same as a single 18 GHz core?
