Ronald beat me to this one in the 'bread, but since AMD is on a clustering streak of sorts, I'm going to give the story a little extra love. TR reader morpheus777 spotted this article over at eWeek detailing the Los Alamos National Laboratory's plans to use more than 3,300 Opterons in two Linux clusters. One of those clusters will use 2,800 chips and peak at 11.2 teraflops.
The fact that so many new clusters seem to be favoring the Opteron should help the chip establish credibility for AMD in the server market. If AMD's supercomputer success with Opteron can trickle down to enterprise markets, brisk sales for high margin chips could raise AMD's average selling price and pull the bleeding company out of the red.
