Hi Andreas,
many vendors are going to put in the market ARM+GPU based cluster. Yes, 
ARM is a 32bit system, with now a 1 Gbit connection normally, but in few 
watt could have a performance of 300 GFlops... so I think in the near 
future could be a player in the HPC market.

I'm interested yust for the patchless cluster...
