Microwulf is a personal, portable Beowulf cluster, providing over 26 Gflops of measured performance. In January 2007, its components cost less than $2500. It weighs less than 31 pounds, and its dimensions are just 11" x 12" x 17", making it small enough to fit on one's desktop or in a suitcase.
Update: As of Aug 1, 2007, Microwulf can be built for $1256, improving its price/performance ratio to less than $48/Gflop. See the Cluster Monkey article below for the details.
Microwulf was designed and built by
Calvin CS professor Joel Adams
and senior Tim Brom.
