Re: Re: Timing of N[ Factorial[4000000], 18]


$Version
Timing[N[Factorial[4000000], 18]]

"7.0 for Mac OS X x86 (64-bit) (November 11, 2008)"

{4.09643, 5.46787756151445098*10^24671065}

This was on a 2.8GHz iMac WHILE running Rybka Aquarium 3's "infinite  
analysis" of a chess position, in a Parallels WinXP window.

Computers are getting kinda fast, don't you think?
