Talking petaFLOPS HPC Linux Clustering

Hi guys

Here's a new LQ member (and Linux fan) from Bulgaria. Not a guru of course but constantly learning...

As a physicist I am interested in High Performance Computing (parallel calculations using Linux clusters) because my areas of interest in Physics require much computational power - Numerical Relativity as example... CactusCode should do well enough. Adaptive mesh refinement, things like that...

Have you heard that the present combined "Folding-at-home" power of the involved PlayStation3 volunteers have reached 1 petaFLOPS?!! Yes, the new Sony/IBM/Toshiba 1+8-core processor (Cell BE) is really a huge step forward. I can hardly wait for the Cell BE architecture to enter the consumer PC market! And the major Linux distros to be compiled for Cell BE of course

Until then... well, I plan to try a Celeron 420 based PC (overclocked of course ) with 1 or 2 Gigs of RAM (due to budget restrictions ).

Is anybody reading this at all??
