HPC has always been a novel race between the technologists squeezing performance, and scale economics driving the mass-production prices to affordable levels.

The first cluster ('Beowulf') was an amalgam of both forces: commodity desktop CPUs and super modern 10 Mbit networking to make up in scale what each CPU lacked in horsepower.

It should be no shock that today a processor made popular in cellphones should be at the heart of a performance revolution, with cloud driving the economics.
