sounds like some brutalist take on molecular gastronomy!

seems kind of uninspiring, in hardware specs. 1366 socket, not 2011,
optional fast network, gpu, etc, builtin ipmi. 8x in 5U, so not really
a density play.
I guess I'm a bit skeptical about the utility of this approach -
would be nice if they had some technical literature. something about
thermal resistance. define how the oil bath dumps the heat (water
hookups in the back?) comparison to modern heatpipe-based solutions, etc.
