The $100 million Roadrunner system, which is currently installed at the DOE’s Los Alamos Laboratory in New Mexico, offers a peak performance of 1.105 petaflops, or more than 1.1 quadrillion calculations per second. When Sequoia is finished in 2012, IBM believes the system will deliver 20 petaflops of performance using the company’s next-generation BlueGene technology
I bet that thing will run Quake 4 no problem. :D

Notice how the Japanese have one that is nearly three times faster than the next fastest?

but the new IBM "DAWN" will have nearly twice the computations as the Japanese...but for how long...and how much faster will Sequoia be...and how much is the DOE spending?
