Hardware, Embedded Systems According to (via popsci), the Cray Inc. XT5-HE supercomputer (Jaguar) is getting updated. The Department of Energy's Jaguar computer will be renamed Titan. This reported $97 million upgrade will be using AMD CPUs and NVIDIA Tesla GPUs and is claimed to "be at least twice as fast and three times as energy efficient as today's fastest supercomputer, which is located in Japan." Good news for gamers.

2x as fast means they can sell double the time on it.

I assume they did the maths and $97 million is worth the price for it! (and the ability to say its the fastest in the world really does bring in extra monies)
