The Niagara thunders down in full force

The enormity of Niagara's processing capability & it's power efficiency are simply overwhelming every other system in it's class built to date. The amount of buzz it's deservingly generated is quite amazing, to say the least. And HP, as usual, has shown it's class by resorting to FUD. Alan Hargreaves has responded fittingly. Some more information on the niagara boxes & the records that they've been setting. btw, Sun's open sourcing the design & validation code for the UltraSparc T1 (Niagara). More links:
