I've been waiting for an announcement like this since the IBM+NVidia 
alliance was announced last year. I think it's going to be Intel vs. 
IBM/NVidia in the HPC race for the foreseeable future, but I'm hoping 
ARM jumps in in the next couple of years to keep it interesting for us 

I think what's really amazing is how much smaller the system will be in 
terms of actual nodes and FLOPS vs. Watts (based on the data comparing 
Sierra to Titan).
