Why the US Air Force 300 PlayStation 3?

    The US military has bought for some of its needs as many as 300 pieces of PlayStation 3 consoles. Why it is needed is not known exactly. Apparently, for relatively complex calculations (because examples of this kind of use of powerful processor processors for calculations in public research projects already exist). But enthusiast projects are one thing, and the Air Force is another.

    However, the availability of consoles in large quantities and the good performance of the Cell processor used in them is a good help for creating a "supercomputer" . As the author of the news on 3DNews successfully noted, if this goes on, then soon the PlayStation 3 will begin to purchase and NASA.
