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.

I think your tongue in cheek detector is broken, or possibly David's tongue in cheek emitter.

Tough to assign blame there, but the implied joke probably involves Crysis 2.

Is Crysis still the paramount of crazy hardware needs ? I'd have spontaneously believed that since Crytek decided to port it on 6 years old console hardware, they'd have had to reduce their hardware requirements at least a little bit.

Unless they went Bethesda and made some incredibly unoptimized PC release as compared to the console version, that is.

It was the original submitter's joke. Get it? It's a supercomputer built out of video cards!
