Hardware, Embedded Systems According to physorg.com (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.

What they said was the current computer fell off the charts in relative speeds against other super computers. This upgrade is claimed to now make it twice as fast as the fastest rated one now.
