Even for the intermediate "development" system, Dawn, the article quotes
150,000 cores in 36 racks. Which makes about 100 cores in a 1U space. That's a
hell of a density...

An even weirdest number around this system is the amount of memory listed.
1.6TB of main memory for 1.6 million cores, that's a mere 1 MB per core... I
hope it's a P, not a T.
