Introducing The Condor Cluster A Supercomputer Built From PlayStation 3s
An awesome new supercomputer, called The Condor Cluster, has just been unveiled at The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL)! The gigantic system is constructed of nearly 2,000 PlayStation 3s.
The Condor Cluster is capable of 500 TFLOPS per second, and includes 1,760 PS3s, 168 separate graphical processing units, and 84 coordinating servers. AFRL engineers had to get the PS3’s directly from Sony because the new slim models don’t support Linux.
