    It works now, still I don't understand what a 65nm SPE for a 1PFLOPS supercomputer means. Does this have anything to do with CELL? Or is it just a SPE core that's used as a coprocessor/accelerator?

    Presentation that's likely tied into the Roadrunner project and/or other Cell-based supercomputing projects.

    IIRC that machine is to use the DP (Double Precision) Cell, if so this is a presentation on a completely new SPE.
