DoD buys PS3 for HPC.

CNN brief at

http://scitech.blogs.cnn.com/2009/12/09/military-purchases-2200-ps3s/

Clip from report:

 "Though a single 3.2 GHz cell processor can deliver over 200 GFLOPS,
whereas the Sony PS3 configuration delivers approximately 150 GFLOPS, the
approximately tenfold cost difference per GFLOP makes the Sony PS3 the only
viable technology for HPC applications."
