PlayStation 3 Cluster, Or Skynet?

Last month, we told you about the United States Air Force's plans to purchase around 2200 PlayStation 3 consoles to crunch some data with. Wonder what that kind of horsepower actually looks like?


Here's just a taste. This is the back room of the USAF Research Laboratory's information directorate in Rome, New York, and these are the branch's original allotment of 336 consoles. Which is terrifying enough. Factor in another 2200 and we're getting to the stage where Miles Dyson needs to be blown away.
