Remember that 16-core Tyan Typhoon
personal supercomputer we told you about back in March? Yeah, that was before all the dual-core
and now quad-core
action started flooding the market. Well, we've just laid our eyes on the Typhoon 600 series, which is loaded to the brim with Clovertown
chips, reaching 256 gigaflops worth of processing power from a single outlet. Of course, the Typhoon isn't exactly going to crack the Top500
list of supercomputers, but it'll probably work much better than that those decked out quad-core getups
we've seen thus far. If you really need that many chips, just be prepared not to flip out when you see the £10,000 ($19,080) pricetag, which works out to about 25,600,000 flops per pound sterling.
