    ps3 USAF Unveils Supercomputer Made of 1,760 PS3s

    The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) has connected 1,760 PlayStation 3 systems together to create what the organization is calling the fastest interactive computer in the entire Defense Department. The Condor Cluster, as the group of systems is known, also includes 168 separate graphical processing units and 84 coordinating servers in a parallel array capable of performing 500 trillion floating point operations per second (500 TFLOPS), according to AFRL Director of High Power Computing Mark Barnell.

    That's a lot of cell processors all connected up. I bet the systems are running firmware version 3.15 though.

    Why is it always Sony consoles being used for military purposes? First Saddam planning to use Ps2 processors as a Scud launch control and now this. Are Sony trying to get their slice of the arms trade? Who knows.
