They spend 9 paragraphs discussing it, and other aspects of the optical system.

I think it's pretty neat. I'm mostly skeptical because commodity compute has led HPC for so long. Novel architectures are often quite interesting, but feel like they only have a performance advantage for short periods of time.

It looks like a neat system though, and I'm sure many of the ideas will trickle down into commodity hardware eventually. It's great that HP are still doing this kind of stuff.
