Not only is CPlant already faster, but in a few more weeks the FSL
AlphaLinux cluster will be expanded to ~600 Alphas, which will give it
a theoretical peak of 835 GFlops.

And I hear that the 1 TFlop NCSA cluster is actually installed and

It can be dangerous to claim that anything is the fastest ;-)
