Intel is mostly out of Supercomputing
Cray has four lines of computers, the XK6, XE6, XMT and the CX1000. The XK6, XE6 and XMT are giant machines with > 100,000 AMD Opteron CPUs. The CX1000 is just a small box for mom and pop shops.
Intel technology seems to be not only ill suited for enterprise computing, but also not tested for supercomputing.
The lesser educated may beg to differ. They say like AMD, Intel has four machines in supercomputer top 10-- number 2, 4, 5 and 7. AMD machines ranked 3, 6, 8 and 10.
But look closer. The so-called Intel machines actually rely on Nvidia's Fermi GPGPUs for their compute power.
Cray expects to double its revenue in 2012, on the strength of Bulldozer.
