[Bioclusters] FPGA in bioinformatics clusters (again?)

    This is a very interesting discussion about FPGAs in bioinformatics.

    I generally only post to help with technical questions, but this
    discussion has had a lot of marketing information and opinions in
    it, so I feel it should be OK to post just one marketing-related 
    mail. I promise it's the only one I'll post.

    I have been reading about a speedup factor of 10x to 100x when using
    a C-to-FPGA converter, and I would like to point out that for 
    specific kinds of searches, we have seen speeds of 200X to 2,000X
    using our FPGA accelerators. We spend our R&D money to hand-craft
    the fastest loadfile so that your researchers can do the work they
    are interested in.

    For further discussions, please contact me directly so that this
    list can remain a productive discussion of bioclusters.

    Thank you for allowing me this one-time-only marketing presentation.
