Tyan's 20-core and 40-core personal supercomputers

The Typhoon box packs up to five two-socket server boards in a 21 inch x 14 inch x 28 inch wheelable case. 20 cores worth of Intel's Woodcrest chips or 40 cores worth of the four-core Clovertown chip. A Typhoon 600 Series box should reach 256 gigaflops, while eating only 1,400 watts. A Woodcrest version of the Typhoon system will start at around $11,000, while a fully-stacked version of the personal cluster with the best chips on the market will top out at $25,000
