New 35 Teraflop Supercomputer released

A 35 teraflops "monster" has been unveiled: Wired.com: Supercomputing: Suddenly Sexy -- "In a former life Steve Chen was something of a legend in supercomputing, leading Cray's design team during its most successful years. He once hoped to build a supercomputer that could predict tomorrow's weather today. That challenge has been answered by NEC, and then some, with its new Earth Simulator, based in Japan. While real-time weather forecasting is a snap for this processing monster, it's intended for something even more important: disaster prediction."
