IBM will build the fastest supercomputer, and this brute will be named Roadrunner. The word is that Roadrunner will have AMD Opteron and IBM Cell processors, 16,000 of each, making it about four times faster than the existing fastest computer - BlueGene/L.

The new computer is being built for the US Department of Energy to ensure that the stockpile of nuclear weapons are kept safe, without the need for underground testing.
