Intel to team up with Cray

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2008/04...up-with-cray/1

Intel is entering into a partnership with high-performance computing legends Cray to create a next-generation supercomputer - and it could well be Nehalem-based.

Just a small detail - isn't Intel's QuickPath answer to AMD's Directconnect, rather than Hypertransport?

Probably not, unless you can run Crysis in software rendering mode. In which case, it will be incredibly fast!
Some one has got to try running Crysis on a supercomputer sometime

That's the problem with Supercomputers, Excel works REALLY fast on them, but try sticking in a good game or playing a new BluRay title and they'd fall over and die. Really, what's the point of a PC if you can't even play Quake 3 on it? Pah.

If Excel runs well, then this is the 3d engine for a Cray.
