Hmm is sony in breach of their own contract?... *hint hint graf*
Just wait until the US DoD decides to make a similar kind of supercomputer and sony refuses them consoles that give full access to the RAM and the HV... graf is gonna love his new job then...
quite frankly I don't care, I did when OtherOS was an option for everyone, now if they mentioned they used bootos/asbestos on these machines, then I'd like this.
They don't need full access to the PS3's other hardware to do this. It's the cell they're after and you already have full access to it. The RAM and RSX are irrelevant in a setup like this that's why the PS3 is ideal for it.
Based on the later happenings with sony. We find out there pr dpt is prone to lie. Can we be sure there was ever a unit sold at a loss?
I think i read that sony will still supply government and research bodies with otheros enabled consoles.
Edit: my memory must be going bad, ps3's used in another cluster i was thinking about were obtained via a third party and not sony.

Man I bet it would get hot in there in a hurry if the cooling system went down! And you can bet those things (THE CELL) are running at full speed!
