    It may not be fast, but it’s an awesome platform for algorithm development. You can develop, debug, and test your algorithm on this at home, then after it works, it should run unmodified on a similar Beowolf cluster made of faster/more powerful computers in a data center.

    This is just awesome why is everyone comparing this a game machine etc. it has no graphics card but it has other capabilities that are just awesome.

    How can they call this a super computer when it cant even enhance or run even a little bit power-full than your average looking phone please.

    What about any benchmark results? How does this perform compared to a rack mount server?

    Why do you call this a supercomputer?

    Could something like this be used a little render farm? How do you think it’d perform?

    I really love the design and idea of the work! I’m curious how this setup would perform on video games and design scenarios. Can windows be loaded onto Linux to complete these tasks?

    Hi there! What kind of simmulations are you doing? I’m guessing that you are solving systems of equations. If so, how many equations are you solving. Also how much money did you expend?

    How would you compare this low cost solution with a computer builded with the same characteristics? Would this be more powerful because of its scalability, or less powerful because of the latency of switch and ethernet communications? What would the Flops/price ratio?

      Because the purpose of a super computer is not the same purpose of your high-end consumer model.

      Its not for gaming or hosting games etc. This probably doesn’t even have a graphics card as it’s irrelevant. Its not something you’d use for a daily or even weekly driver. Realistically it’d be used for mining, storing, and solving. 512mb of ram is less then any phone on the market

      Something like Arch Linux is the best

      No, there’s no graphics card. Putty terminals all day. Any knock of Linux really. Kali, Ubuntu, redhat etc.
