as I'm sure you're aware, low-power commodity processors are also
lower-speed. that's certainly the case with Orion stuff, PC104 clusters,
have you considered using the new generation of relatively easy-to-program
FPGA's instead? the real beauty of Beowulf-like hardware is its flexibility
(as well as commodity pricing, of course). but your application seems much
more of a production thing, where the greater compute-density of FPGA's
would be appropriate. costs would depend on scale, I think.
