Inside the SupercomputerThe new supercomputer - with a total of 1,440 microprocessors - isbased on three IBM iDataPlex systems, equal to the size of sixrefrigerators; an IBM Cluster 1350; and multiple IBM storage systemsrunning General Parallel File System, supported by IBM Global Services.Highlights of the system:Operates at a peak performance speed of more than 14 teraflops, nearly 50 times faster than what had been available at Brown.Has390 terabytes of storage capacity, an amount of data which if printedand stacked, would extend from Providence to Hong Kong.Holds 4.5 terabytes of memory, about 70 times more memory than what had been available at Brown.Allowsparallel programs to be run, that, in aggregate, are 20 times fasterthan what had been available at Brown. Researchers can now compute aproblem that is 20 times larger in the same time.Combinedwith the supercomputer, Brown has increased its backbone networktenfold, to 10 gigabits from one gigabit. The greater bandwidth meansmore data can be moved within the system or into another system.Is six times more energy efficient than what had been available at Brown.

Highlights of the system:
I'm thinking you could run games on it with no problem,.... if you had a decent video card. They could probably afford such a card though.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
