this is interesting.  most of the coverage seems to interpret this as 
using opterons (which makes some sense, given the direction bulldozer
is going, towards lots of space/power-effective cores.)

but here's another prospect: a box with lots of APU chips that max out
GPU density.  lotsa gflops/watt, very compact...

seamicro says their interconnect is special, low-lat, high-bw,
but it sounds like an onboard 10Gb chip to me.  calxeda's onboard
distributed switch might be more interesting.
