Cray’s XT-3 has shipped. Using AMD’s Opteron processor, it scales to a total of 30,580 CPUs. The starting price is $2 million for a 200 processor system. One of its strongest advantages over the std linux cluster is that it has an excellent interconnect built by Cray.
Cool, here’s hoping that the OC, (also known as Craydaddy), can hook me up with a discount! Now that it’s running Linux, I’m in the market for a laptop.
