Nvidia (NVDA) is helping power what should be the world's fastest supercomputer, the DOE's Titan system. Titan's 20 petaflops of processing power has much to do with its use of 18K Nvidia Tesla K20 GPUs. Nvidia has scored a number of high-profile supercomputer wins via the high-margin Tesla line, though it's now facing fresh competition from Intel's Xeon Phi. Cray (CRAY) is building Titan, which also uses AMD Opteron server CPUs. (also)
