Video Game Consoles Make Up Green Supercomputer
Tuesday - 12/14/2010, 5:40pm EST
It's called the Condor Cluster project and it's being built entirely from off-the-shelf commercial components. Its creators say it could change the supercomputing landscape.
The system is capable of making 500 trillion calculations per second -- and represents new ways for supercomputers to increase computational resources while using less energy. The Condor is currently considered the seventh-greenest computer in the world.
It cost only 2 million dollars to build, whereas the cheapest comparable supercomputers would cost $50 million or more.
