SuperComputing For Everyone - A Desktop Cray

Cray Supercomputers look really nice - but are a bit oversized for an average Java developer :-).
The slogan: "Supercomputing Solutions for Everyone" is somehow appropriate - Cray workstations are available as well .

Oracle's ExaLogic would be also interesting in a mini-tower or even laptop chassis :-)


Reminds me of the old Silicon Graphics home office offer:

That thing is real! It was made as kind of advertisement gag for tradeshows in the good old days when SGI was THE hot shit. (didn't they even get an Oscar for the Terminator special effects?)

What great timing -- I've been planning to buy a new home workstation this year!

@Adam: no, just more IO power for building the NetBeans source tree!

Hi Adam!

Oh, only $35,450 for the CRAY CX1-iWS ;-)

With a 24 core processor architecture.

The only bad thing: Windows 7 & Windows HPC Server 2008 :-/
