    here is a story about a 12 cpu 'supercomputer' for $10,000. pretty good deal if you are a small business that relies on raw cpu power.

    Wow, you can edit a lot of word documents simultaneously with that sucker! Plus, it would take at least a hundred pieces of spyware and adware before the clueless small business owner becomes aware of the system slowdown. [​IMG]

    i know what i would do if i had $100,000 that i needed to spend. buy the 96 cpu version, and run Prime95 all day long! i dont think it benefits from parallel processing, though. maybe in future versions. i think Prime95 wiht parallel processing support could actually get me to buy a dual cpu system for my next computer.
