Alienware lands supercomputer deal

[COLOR=#1951B9]Alienware, a privately held computer maker best known for its high-end PCs for video gamers, has signed a deal to build a powerful research computer for Florida International University.

Miami-based Alienware, whose consumer systems can sell for $3,000 or more, said Tuesday the system would be powered by 98 of Advanced Micro Devices' Opteron processors.[/COLOR]

Best of luck for Alienware who most likely got the deal after other major OEM such as HP and Dell had bid for the contract. This also gives a good hint that Alienware is considering diversification to certain areas while PC giants (as aforementioned) have agressively jumped on the enthusiast bandwagon as well.
