"Scientific computing is just number crunching, which the PS3s
are very good at given the Cell processor and deploying them in a
cluster,” Mueller says. “Right now one limitation is
the 256 megabyte RAM memory constraint, but it might be possible to
retrofit more RAM. We just haven’t cracked the case and
explored that option yet.” Another problem lies in limited
speed for double-precision calculations required by scientific
applications, but announcements for the next-generation Cell
processor address this issue."
