The builder of the Big Mac actually comes out and says that Intel lost Mhz Game
And this is from probably the Biggest switcher ever. Never touched a mac before.
And now he is getting requests on how to build more of these cheap powerful supercomputers.

Great friggin article.....Srinidhi Varadarajan - the new nerd superhero....

I'm really curious as to what sort of final numbers they can come up with - since it was originally spec'd to be #2.

"Expect to see a lot more G5 clusters from now on," [Varadarajan] said.

that's good news... mb a big cluster could take #1?

also, they still haven't upgraded to 10.3 --> further speed increases?

Never mind the MegaHertz -- Intel lost the GigaHertz battle.

Don't you think it's weird that the article says they paid the full $3000 for each G5? Wouldn't they get the educational discount, even if they couldn't get a volume discount? Very weird!

Well I hope they got the $100 coupon, at least.

I think they got tons of free tech support and probably other perq's.
I'm glad they're saying the paid full price, though, and WOW what a cool advertisement for Apple!

Since the average supercomputer cost more than 5mill, I'm sure they were happy to pay full price for these babies .

The average supercomputer cost more than 20mil that's what's so cool about this project.
