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.

That's a ridiculous statement without looking at how many GPU's are being added vs. the number of CPU cores. Jaguar has more than 224,000 AMD cores as it is. How many GPUs vs. CPUs they will be adding depends on to what exactly their workloads demands.
