"The cost of the platform is also low – around $100 per website."
Ah, say what? I always thought that HPC = massive math. Like vector math for floating point numbers, and such.
Doh! people ar so behind the times these days, its simple...
for that real kick you just get the slightly more expensive (and it would not be that much more in these kinds of large orders)
get lots of 2Ghz ARM Cortex- A9/NEON MPCore multicore processors and be happy
or some readily available Efika ARM Cortex- A8/NEON motherboards if your happy with using multiple slower and single, remember too the NEON SIMD are just as powerful clock for clock as the PPC Altivec SIMD it seems, so your fine if you know how to stricture your prodrams for SIMD use were aver its availble and you get a real true NEON vector instruction set, not like the old power hungree sse* to play with.....
"The Cortex-A9 microarchitecture is delivered within either a scalable multicore processor, the Cortex-A9 MPCore™ multicore processor, or as a more traditional processor, the Cortex-A9 single core processor.
Supporting the configuration of 16, 32 or 64KB four way associative L1 caches, the scalable multicore processor and the single processor – two distinct, separate products – provide the broadest flexibility and are each suited to specific applications and markets."
