I wonder how well Crysis would run on it.

Lol.

I don't get it, why waste all that money when like 500 Graphics cards will do the same amount of floating...

Graphics card don't scale as well as AMD Opterons and would require drivers the likes of which i hope never are needed. Ontop of that GPU can't do everything CPU can. Which makes them useless for this since they handle almost exclusively graphical data. Nor do they support regular DDR RAM, only GDDR which is made for frame buffering only. GPU also generate more heat and use more power. The list gos on but that is a general overview. If you would like to know more about the differences in GPU computing and CPU computing just ask.

I know this is off topic, but it's interesting nonetheless!

In either arizona or new mexico, they have a power plant for one particular science facility. It's a black hole creator.... Well, supposedly they can create one the size of an atom or something for a short time by using an incredible amount of electricity and bombarding an atom with electrons till it collapses on itself. It's one of the most power hungry devices in the world.

No the black hole isn't self sustainable. Doesn't work like that, so no fears of our planet gettin crunched by one of these... Lemme find the source, and I'll edit the post.

EDIT:

There, the machine's more than 20 million amps of electricity slam to a sudden, violent, fiery halt. nd there, for an instant, that tiny space can get hotter than the inside of the sun. In the moment that follows, that captive little star collapses in on itself to become a miniature black hole Â*Â*Â*- a man-made black hole, roiling, pitch-dark and deep, in the Duke City's suburbs.
