okay but then how many cell processors match the same power as like 9800gx2?

So could you say that this gives AMD the performance crown?

It really depends on the type of calculations they're doing. GPUs are very fast at certain things, yes, but they aren't as flexible as regular CPUs. The Cell shares some similarities to a GPU, but my guess is they went with Cell over GPU solutions for 2 main reasons:
1) IBM makes Cell
2) Scalability

It is only part Opteron, the other part is Cell. So kind of yes, kind of no. Mostly no.

I was only joking

I think they should turn this into a marketing slogan: AMD, powering the world's fastest supercomputer.

To put the computer's speed in perspective, if every one of the 6 billion people on earth used a hand-held computer and worked 24 hours a day it would take them 46 years to do what the Roadrunner computer can do in a single day.
Wow, thats some souped up PS3 alright. Wonder where you would begin troubleshooting a hardware problem with one of those.

Come on now its the gov's property. Why troubleshoot when you can just spend another $133 mil of taxpayer money on another?

Opterons have been used in more super computers then you think. Texas built one built entirely on Opterons. They are used quite often because they scale better then Intel's chips (that may change and change hard and sharp when Nahalem comes around though. HT links really make the difference here.)

Rendering by CPU = Software rendering. The CPU can do texture filtering and other things a graphics card can, but it really needs a lot of power for a CPU. So it could actually run Crysis.

Actually, it probably can't. I doubt that it's running Windows...
