IconIBM has won a bid to build a supercomputer called Roadrunner that will include not just conventional Opteron chips but also the Cell processor used in the Sony PlayStation. The supercomputer, for the Los Alamos National Laboratory, will be the world's fastest machine and is designed to sustain a performance level of a 'petaflop', or 1 quadrillion calculations per second, said US Senator Pete Domenici earlier this year. I'd like to play Solitaire on that.
