Not really sure where to post this, so I'll try here. Will BOINC be able to use these, assuming the app was written accordingly?

With Intel's introduction I think it's time to take a very serious look at supporting this.


This link describes it as a very easy port.

Any new news on this? Intel is about to release 5 new models of these, some even under $2k. Since it is nothing more than collection of ~60 (depending on model) modified Pentium cores, perhaps crunching (Linux)CPU apps instead of GPU apps would yield better results?
