I have been wondering what use if any Tianhe-1 made of Radeon HD 4870 X2. I
had a card like that and it died three times during one year warranty.
Needless to add it perished shortly after the warranty run out. Perhaps
we'll see 2560 of those (or whatever was left of them) on eBay shortly.

Incidentally, does anyone know existing _production_ GPU clusters used not
for development but to run jobs by ordinary users?
TSUBAME 2.0 is supposed to be operational shortly. All the other places that
I know of are for development, e.g. Keeneland.
