Tesla: its powerful, fast and it's electric

No, it's not the Tesla roadster new to the automotive scene, it's the worlds first personal super computer. Yes, I did just call a super computer "personal". For $10k you too can have a massively parallel processing computer with up to 960 cores, processing 4 TeraFLOPS that the company says is 250 times faster than standard PC's and workstations. The CPU and GPUs are programmed using C and Nvidia's proprietary parallel programming model, CUDA.
