OAK RIDGE (AP) -- A new computer nicknamed Jaguar could be setting speed records soon at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

The computer is capable of 20 trillion calculations per second.

Officials at the lab hope to add capacity to the machine that could have it performing 100 trillion calculations per second by September.

The goal is for the laboratory to have the world's most powerful scientific computer.

Officials hope to achieve 250 trillion calculations per second by 2007.
