No. My math is perfectly fine. You're confusing the ability to actually use a CPUs maximum theoretical performance under perfect, single precision conditions.(FLOPS) as apposed to whats realistically available.

You can say the same for any processor...

See: [email protected] on PS3. No doubt using high-end GPUs would be cheaper and more productive if they are making a personal HPC, but this could be something that could take advantage of the 34 million Xbox 360s sold.
