Opterons did it


Germany’s Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) has increased the processing capacity of its HP Cluster Platform supercomputer.
According to an HP press release KIT has added 15.6 teraflops to its previous capacity of two teraflops. The upgrade will make it the fiftieth fastest computer in the world.

The upgrade was achieved by adding more HP ProLiant servers based around AMD Opteron dual-core processors.
