Default Get a supercomputer for $99

Adapteva is selling a $99 parallel-processing board that can build a Linux supercomputer for less than $100.

Cheap underpowered computers are the new black since the $25 and $35 Raspberry Pi models appeared so Adapteva is trying to flog a more expensive gizmo in a crowded market.

However, Adapteva is the first super-cheap supercomputer. Dubbed Parallela, Adapteva's board the size of a Raspberry Pi, but packs a significantly more powerful punch.

It has 1GB of RAM, 2 USB 2.0 ports, a microSD slot, an HDMI connection, and a 10/100/1000 Ethernet port – all pretty standard. But Parallela has an ARM A9 processor with a 64-core Epiphany Multicore Accelerator, which helps the board achieve around 90 gigaflops.

The boards can't replace standard desktops or gaming rigs but it will create a more efficient number cruncher. This board will use Ubuntu Linux 12.04 for its operating system.
