Supercomputing

Submission + - Where are all the cool cell processor hacks?

edarmoc writes: "I chose to file this "ask-slashdot" under the category "supercomputing" because essentially that is what the cell processor is capable of becoming. It has already been demonstrated that linux is capable of running on the PS3 [video]. That itself is pretty pretty cool, and IBM is doing their own fun stuff with the blade server. So from what I understand, the cell is designed such that the PS3, Blade server, and even a cellphone with a cell processor could all link and act as one "super" computer. I'm guessing that the cell cellphone is a few years away, but with linux already running on PS3s in the wild, why haven't I heard about more cool stuff being done with the cell processor?"
