This is last years winner of the super computers. Can't wait to see what they build with next years pc's (i7 +s?)

p.s. They should be playing pong on it.

The data operations are all done on the Cells, the traditional CPUs (Opterons) provide oversight and data feeds.

I wouldn't really give props to the opterons, since they are just traffic cops.
