So it's interesting, a light weight ARM processor, without anything better than micro USB and micro HDMI. Neat yes, but really? Useful? Maybe as a wireless router, or some other PoE like device but as a useful processing system? Um...
Even linking many of these together - neat, but again, the world of MPI is based on completely different processor designs and interconnects, you're talking huge amount of time and effort to replicate something on a unique platform which may or may not ever see wide spread acceptance by the developer base.
I don't want to get into an argument here about which process is better. My point was that the Atom works well, as well as the Xeon line and Core line processors.
Whether or not your favorite brand is something else shouldn't make a difference here. The point being that Intel is making piles of cash on technology they've already developed and put piles of money into. Why kill the golden goose just because cell phones use a slightly lower powered alternative.
The article reads like:
"My server processors suck for cell phones, so I should discontinue those because people use more cell phones than servers"
Not very sound business logic IMHO.
When my q6600 was running XP it addressed 3.5GB of memory. As soon as I installed win7 it addressed all 6GB I had in the box.
PAE under FreeBSD and Linux works fine, it's just the amount of userland vs kernelland addressable memory that's the issue. On a PAE kernel you're still stuck with 3.5GB of kernel land addressable memory.
But this is comparing a fast bicyclist to a fast space craft in the sense of speed difference here.
We're talking machines that are pushing into the tens and hundreds of petaflops (next generation).
I'm fine with calling them low-power high performance clusters, but calling them super computers is something completely different altogether.
