XT5 on parallel lines

manufacturer, Cray, has released its new XT5 family of supercomputers, based around Linux. According to a company press release Cray claims that the XT5 is the "the world's most scalable Linux-based supercomputer."

It is a massively parallel processor system, which increases local memory capacity four-fold, doubles processor density and improves energy efficiency.

Unfortunately, since supercomputers are rarely reviewed in the tech press we will never really know the details.
