96 Processor Cluster in a Small Box

Awesome stuff. This computer is only a little larger than a personal computer, but it contains 96 Transmeta Efficeon processors, each running at 1.2 GHz. Linux powers 96-node personal cluster

“The DS-96 measures 17 x 27 x 25 inches, and weighs 150 pounds. It draws a claimed peak of 1,500 Watts through a single 15-amp NEMA (normal) wall outlet.”

But it won’t replace a personal desktop anytime soon: prices start at $100,000.
