Multi-computer chips from GreenArrays offer a combination of great computing power, small size, low energy consumption, and high value.
GreenArrays, the makers of the GA144 chip, has an OEM partnership with Schmart Board that will allow hobbyists and experimenters to use a chip with 144 cores running about 90 billion instructions per second at a total power of under one watt (typical) while running at full clip and which only uses about 14 microwatts when everything is idle.
Adapteva has a multicore chip that can run at 70 gigaFLOPs per watt.
