Wired News: The University of New Mexico and IBM are teaming up to build the world's fastest Linux-based supercomputer.
Named "LosLobos", the new supercomputer is scheduled to be fully operational by the summer.
LosLobos is a departure from the traditional supercomputer set-up. It's built from 256 IBM Netfinity servers.
The Netfinity servers are linked together using special clustering software and high-speed networking hardware, which causes the separate units to act as one computer, delivering a processing speed of 375 gigaflops, or 375 billion operations per second.
