Building Supercomputers from Mobile Processors

Microprocessors took the supercomputer market from vector computers because they are cheaper and more energy efficient. We may be about to see how mobile processors take the server and supercomputer market from microprcoessors for the very same reasons: they are cheaper and more energy efficient. This talk will describe the possibilities and challenges involved in developing a high performance computing platform from low cost and energy efficient mobile processors and commodity components.
