On the heels of a number of announced supercomputer projects based on AMD's new Opteron server processor, eWeek is reporting that the National Center for Supercomputing Applications will be building a Xeon-powered supercomputer using 1,450 PowerEdge servers from Dell. The supercomputer will apparently be capable of 17.7 teraflops, which would make it the third most powerful supercomputer in the world.
In total, the supercomputer will use over 2,500 Xeon processors running at 3.05GHz. The supercomputer will run Red Hat Linux, too. Oh what I'd give to see it fold, if only for a day.
