indeed. it's interesting to consider a small board with one tilera chip,
4x 64b ddr3/2133 dimms, and 8x 10G links (let's just suppose it's an 8d
hypercube with sfp+ copper links). 6400 cores in a box at <4kw?
the 100x chips is 2011 though: the upcoming chip is only 36-core,
which makes it an interesting comparison to intel larrabee (rumored
to also have 4x64b memory, and 32-48 cores in 2010.)
