   There's not enough volume in high-end box market to get to the break-even
   point on the price-performance.  

That's not clear.

   Providing that there's a way to get a bunch of cheapo CPUs to do the

True, but there's a complexity hit (which translates into a reliability hit
and a development lag) from this approach.

   And don't forget the DRAM vs SRAM issue.  I did the arithmetic.

Fortunately, there are new memory technologies today that are more
interesting than those when we started work on the SSE.  And ASIC
technology helps you further here...
