One of the reasons nvidia dont give a fuck about getting a a piece of the pie of the next generation of consoles hardware.They simply dont need that kind of bussiness to survive.Building clusters like this for goverments and support services like gaikai....its much more profitable.

I wonder where this ranks in the world as far as supercomputers are concerned, probably not in the top 10 I'm guessing.

Actually, there are 3 super computers that utilize Nvidia GPU's that are in the top 10.

Of course, they aren't 100% GPU based super computers, since GPU's aren't the best at EVERYTHING. CPU's are still needed for more serial tasks.

Also, the top spot is soon to be replaced by this monster:

Which will be comprised of mainly Tesla GPU's.
