That's a CPU that will go in your PCI-E slot, and takes on Nvidia's Tesla GPU's. It won't see the light of day for home use.

I suppose this is what Intel is trying rather than Larabee... If OpenCL becomes stable for this it may be a F@H powerhouse.
Weren't Radeon 4870s theoretically capable of 1 teraflop?
