COLSA Mach5 (http://www.apple.com/science/profiles/colsa/)

Some highlights:
-Mach5 achieves 25Tflop with 1,566 nodes (an improvement of roughly linear scaling)
-Runs OS X Server with IBM Fortran XL compiler
-600 ft^2 of floorspace
-400kW peak power draw

There's no mention made of cost, but with an 1,100 node machine costing a little over $5,000,000, can the Mach5 be all that much more?
