VA Linux got out of the hardware business before I could get my hands on their product so I have no personal experience. The one warning that I did get from the VA engineers was that these Athalon systems suck power and kick out lots of heat. I think they mentioned that their 1U dual-Athalon system required something like a 550-watt powersupply. My word of caution would be to double check your environmental calculations (power needed + tons of air conditioning needed etc. etc.) at the same time you consider any performance gains from the hardware. I'd be interested in benchmarks and user impressions of course! -Chris At 08:58 PM 8/24/01 -0400, you wrote: >Does anyone of you have (or know someone who has) experience with >dual-Athlon clusters?
