If your looking for OVERKILL, this is the rig for you......

FUJITSU "K" COMPUTER : 548,352 cores running @ 2.0 GHz
1032.192 TB RAM
Running @ 10.51 Petaflops

Sweet, eh? Yes it does exist, it is the number one supercomputer in the world today, at a cost of $1.25 billion{US}. Can you imagine running any BOINC project on it for just an hour {60 seconds @ 10.5 PFLOPS = 630 Quadrillion operations in ONE minuete} WWWWOOOOOOOWWWW!!!!!!!

Here check it out yourself; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K_computer

And believe it or not, they are upgrading it..........................

how do you design a task for over 88K processors ? certainly something amazing, but really does it not amount to a lot of small computers interconnected ? I'm not that informed on how such computers archirtecture works.

Wouldn't it be running 548,352 Tasks at a time though, each running at 2.0GHz, considering most BOINC projects are Single Core...
