We've loved the idea of the low cost Pi Linux box since it was announced. The promise of allowing people to create the next generation of technology that is muti-core clusters and smart networked was really compelling. , , , , ,
2012/09/12 08:59 Richard Donovan Southampton University build a Raspberry Pi Cluster While the media may be calling this a 'super computer'. The Pi Cluster built by Southampton University will not be breaking any benchmark records. It does however provide a valuable low cost model to develop clustered and parallel computing for students and engineers. It also demonstrates how low power Arm is eating into new markets including now the educational space. , , , , ,
