    Question Cray X1 Supercomputer

    So I was in supercomputerish mood today, and so i went to Cray's website and checked out their Cray X1 Supercomputer.

    I was amazed at the power that it had.

    But then...I was puzzled.

    This computer is supposedly so powerful, but, where is the ON button? I didn't see it anywhere on the model.

    And where do I plug in my mouse, keyboard, and monitor cables so I can get some real game action?

    That thing can do 16 floating point operations per clock cycle. It can transfer memory at several GB/sec.

    Just think of the gaming power!

    But where do I plug in my monitor cable

    I can't get the 10000 fps that i want if I dont have a place to plug in my monitor cable.

    Also, it doesn't run Windows, since it doesn't use the x86 chipset.

    Some versions of windows did run on architectures other than x86
