"In all, 1760 consoles have been joined with "168 separate graphical processing units and 84 coordinating servers" to form what the Air Force is calling "the fastest interactive computer in the entire Defense Department". It's also, the military claims, the 33rd largest computer of any kind in the world."
"This "rat king" of PlayStation 3s will be used for things like research into AI, fast processing of satellite pictures and the enhancement of radar."
Something else I found interesting that a poster commented on was that if you add up the numbers: 1760+168+84 you get.... 2012!
It's the end of the world people, the end of the world.
