 96 CPUs in one (large) desktop workstation

"What do you do when one, two, or even four CPUs isn't enough? Orion Multisystems hopes you'll consider their newly announced cluster workstations. In an attempt to bring high-performance computing (HPC) to the desktop, the company has launched a product line aimed at scientists and content creators who need workstation-sized packages that can outperform some of the most powerful offerings from the likes of Sun, SGI, and others. Using Transmeta's Efficeon processor (coverage here), Orion is offering a Fedora Core 2-powered 12-processor workstation for $10,000, or a Super-Size-Me 96-processor system for less than $100,000. The specs will make any geek jealous."
