nah.  to me, it's just a density play - nothing wrong with that,
but not really interesting.  if you have small-memory, cache-friendly code,
you'll be happy, but putting 6 cores on the same old tired memory
is not what I'd call an HPC solution.  iirc, the 6-core chips are also 
quite big/expensive.
