That is a bit of history, not as attractive as the X or Y-MP (to my taste) but still a neat machine. Folks have been comparing it to a smartphone today, which is inaccurate, it would be better to compare it to the GPU in a smart phone where the GPU shader engines don't have nearly as rich an instruction set as the CLUs of the T94. (and the T94 only had 4 CPUs rather than 16 or 32) But a amazing I/O bandwidth of 8 GBytes second was pretty cool. This thing would have been capable of an awesome render of most 3D scenes.
