PlayStation 3

System Info: Supercomputer #201

Today I found out, what is the hype about Sony PlayStation 3 all about.

PS 3 = 2 TFlops = 602 * Intel Pentium 4 Xeon 2800 MHz (5.6 GFlops)

And it will come with Linux .....

There will be an optional hard drive module and that will come with an official version of Linux.

i would be very sceptical about sonys specs. sony has said 218 gflops for processor, and 1.8 gflops for graphocs chip (356gflops oof that programmable with shaders).. I doubt you can get linpack report 2tflops with that setting.. still, pretty insane performance.
