    Computer giant IBM will build the world's most powerful supercomputer at a US government laboratory.
    The machine, codenamed Roadrunner, could be four times more potent than the current fastest machine, BlueGene/L, also built by IBM.

    The new computer is a "hybrid" design, using both conventional supercomputer processors and the new "cell" chip designed for Sony's PlayStation 3.

    Roadrunner will be installed at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico.
