IBM demoed a prototype of a Linux Blade Server with two CELL CPUs last week in LA to a small group of customers.

Each board featured two CELL processors, two 512 Mb XDR DRAM chips and two South Bridge LSIs. The Cell CPUs were demonstrated running at 2.4-2.8 GHz. IBM said at 3Ghz the boards would have 400GFLOPS performance.
