10Mw ? Didn't the spanish just build a massive solar ranch in Arizona? That was 20Mw I believe. Out of general green interest, how many flops does one get when one does some thing like seti with the public's computers ? Could a SC feed in tariff be more viable than a green electric tariff ?
The Barcelona Supercomputing Center in Spain has been an enthusiastic supporter of using IBM's Power970MP blade servers as a foundation for its "MareNostrum" massively parallel Linux cluster, which fills 44 server racks and delivers 94.1 teraflops of number-crunching punch. A few years back, this was a pretty big box, but these …

The number's almost add up
But they are not quite spot on. Tegra2 is a dual-core Cortex A9 chip. It is capable of addressing up to 1GB of RAM. Tegra3 is actually a 5-core CPU based on a 1+4 custom design.
If they are claiming 1TB of main RAM in total, that means 1024 Tegra2 CPUs which is 2048 cores. Assuming 1 GPU per CPU that would mean 1024 GPUs.
The 1024 cores / 256 GPUs / 1TB of RAM combination doesn't quite add up with either Tegra chip.
