Their paper says:
# The Beowulf prototype employs 100 MHz Intel DX4 microprocessors
# and a 500 MByte disk drive per processor.
# The DX4 delivers greater computational power than other members
# of the 486 family not only from its higher clock speed, but also
# from its 16 KByte primary cache (twice the size of other 486
# primary caches) 6]. Each motherboard also contains a 256 KByte
# secondary cache.
