It means that Cray is back in business. Good bragging rights for AMD too.

Cray is one GOOD open source supercomputing platform away from being really back into the swing of things. Cray needs a bit of sustainable momentum and some ingredients for a bigger ecosystem.

With a bit of AMD cash wisely spent behind the curtain, supercomputing wizards would come out of the woodwork, grab their nailguns, and start doing Intel coffins for free.
