Is that 2048 cores on 1 motherboard in 1 standard case? No. It's a bunch of systems interlinked together. You logic is flawed.Er, really? 64 cores is, "staggering"? Please get with the times; an SGI UV 2000
can have up to 2048 cores and 64TB RAM, and that's a single combined system,
not a cluster. Heck, their *entry level* UV 20 has up to 48 cores and 1.5TB RAM.
