There’s been a huge media buzz surrounding Virginia Tech’s Power Mac G5-based parallel-computing “supercluster.” Comprising 1,100 dual-processor G5 systems, Virginia Tech’s system is clocked as the third-fastest supercomputing system in the world, at a price that’s only a fraction of what other supercomputing systems in its class cost. Now Apple has posted a profile on its Web site of the new system, dubbed “System X.” [MacCentral] i would like just one of these systems never mind the 1100!
