If you want to try and pull real performance out
of any i7 based SFF boards, pay close attention to
the Ethernet chipset (avoid Realtek, seek Intel)

> on is based on 10 Intel i7 small-form-factor boards with a fairly good
> per-core compute capability.
> I'd be interested to hear if you have some ideas (or even pointers to
> code!) for demonstrating HPC concepts to the general public. Especially

> Couple of low-hanging fruits that we are already looking at are
> Blender/povray-rendering and porting the existing Tiny Titan codes.
