Super cluster.

The Proteus Mini-Cluster. Why fiddle about paying through the nose for a super-computer when you can build a 3.6 GFLP one in your bedroom out of a cluster of mini-itx board computers running FreeBSD?

‘No official benchmarks have been run, but for simple computational tasks the mini cluster appears to be faster than four 2.4 GHz pentium 4 mcahines [sic] used in parallel, at a fraction of the cost and power use.’
