Arstechnica has a little summary on the top 500 supercomputing?list for 2006, which i thought would please the AMD fans out there.

The new Top 500 supercomputer list is out, and it contains some interesting twists from the previous list. In particular, followers of the Intel vs. AMD wars will be interested to know that AMD continued to gain on Intel, with 113 systems now using the Opteron (vs. 80 in the June rankings). The number of Intel x86 systems dropped from 265 to 228, even though Woodcrest has already made its way into the list.
