At least with the Phi, within a single system, its completely cache-coherent... all 60 cores (240 hardware threads).

Am I stupid in thinking that they would also make very interesting web applications servers - get your database on a solid state array
Beside the Phi and crank up those web servers.

Sorry if I'm displaying my ignorance as usual.
