Hmm. In all this talk of massive machines, I noticed no
one posted what Intel's ASCI-Red machine could do for
DESCHALL. Although its architecture is not all that great
for most applications, DESCHALL is of course ideally suited
to it. My quick estimate (assuming 9000 200Mhz ppros at 1.15E6k/s)
is around 10.3 billion keys per second.

It would be much cheaper, of course, just to buy 9000 PPro systems
and run them all seperately :)
