^ really... they need to straighten their priorities out... by the time nuclear material decays... like in 5000 years... we'll all be dead anyway so whats the point of simulating it... why not do stuff that can affect us now

We really need to invest in non-weapon use of supercomputer power. Japan and European countries use theirs to simulate weather and earthquakes.

Someone needs to build another AMD based Super Computer to keep AMD in business. Roadrunner and Jaguar accounted for 60% of AMDs sales this year.

lol j/k. Notice how none of the super computers are Intel Based? Its cause AMD rulez.

Actually, according to the article, if we presume that technological progress continues we may have desktops that reach these levels, since ten years ago their supercomputers were in teraflops and our current desktops can process in the teraflops (only with the help of high powered parallel processors, such as graphics cards/stream processors).

"The operating systems used by Roadrunner are said to be Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora,"

so I guess it can't play Crysis

I wonder if the PS4 will use a IBM PowerXCell 8i? they said they would stick with the cell base, so it seems possible. PS4 with 32 SPU's FTW!
