    Talking The new super computer - Jaguar

    I've just found it cited on one of sites:

    >> The new super computer - Jaguar. It's comprised of over 45,000 quad-core Opteron processors, 362TB of RAM, and has a 10PB (petabyte) storage array, able to perform calculations at a massive 1.64 petaflops.

    Temo:
    I need two.

    bob sakamano:
    will they be releasing a netbook sized version of this anytime soon?

    Allislost:
    Can i get a discount for bulk orders?

    Steve Childs:
    Sod Crysis, will it run Vista?

    Liv:
    screw Crysis... this monster can divide by zero and... dare I say it... succeed! *gasp*

    hmm, the jaguar's just been pipped by the roadrunner!

    Cray's XT5 Jaguar supercomputer has narrowly missed displacing IBM's Roadrunner system as the world's fastest supercomputer, according to the results of the bi-annual 'Top500' supercomputing list announced on Friday.

    The thing is that in xx years systems like that will be considered low-end for desktop use.
