CSIRO has signed up for a Xenon computing cluster based on commodity graphics processor chips - the same chips being used to build the Titan supercomputer at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the US, slated to be the world's fastest once completed.
Commodity graphics processor chips used in games machines and mobile phones are revolutionising the face of supercomputing - and should lead to the delivery of 4 teraflop desktop machines running Windows HPC or Linux for just north of $10,000 by 2012.
Returb iPhones are cheaper than ever - definitely worth buying one :-)
