QUESTION MUST BE REOPENED ASAP. How does autistic savants compute?

How does autistic savants (or other people with these abilities) compute eg. 81^100 in 2.5 minutes? Which algorithms do they use, is it an efficient one, or do they just have alot of memory?

I am asking how one performs quick mental calculations. Which tricks are employed.

****QUESTION MUST PROCEED TO REOPEN, Thank you for cooperating****
