LXer: Low Cost/Power HPC
Published at LXer:

In my last column, I mentioned the idea of disposable HPC. The concept is based on building clusters using low cost nodes (less than $500 each). Because lower cost nodes will run slower and have less cores than the big server nodes, they would need to be smaller and use much less power. They will also need a lowerThermal Design Power (TDP) to accommodate dense packaging designs.
