Mercury Reports Initial Success with Cell-Based Systems

Via HPCwire:

Mecury reports progress about it’s Mercury Dual Cell-Based Blade system; using their own SDK they found Fast Fourier Transformations run 15 to 30 times faster than currently available commercial CPUs.

Cell BE seems to be kicking off, finally; and I’m really really fond of their Cell Accelerator Board, i wonder if one could use such a board in a useful manner for Einstein@Home or Rosetta@Home.
