    Default Cray building $97 million supercomputer

    The Titan will be built using GPU and CPU processors. Each compute node on the Jaguar system has two AMD Opteron processors.

    The Titan project involves, in part, removing one Opteron processor and replacing it with a Nvidia GPU.

    Sumit Gupta, manager of the Telsa GPU business for Nvidia, said the Oak Ridge system may see performance "well north of 20 petaflops" if it is built out to its capability. The Oak Ridge system will have as many as 18,000 GPUs.

    the fastest system in the world today is Japan's K Computer, which runs nearly 69,000 eight core Sparc chips and is capable of 8 petaflops.
    69,000 eight cores?

    One of Oak Ridge National Lab's spheres of research is national security. Time to reread Lil'½Dead's other post. Big Brother isn't asking for access anymore.
