    How To Make A Raspberry Pi SuperComputer!

    Trouble is that a standard PC would probably vastly outperform the cluster it controls :-)Roughly speaking an 8 node Pi 2B cluster costs £280 and has about the processing power of a 3GHz Pentium 4 system (but split 8 ways so a single process that takes 10 seconds on the PC will take 80 seconds running on a node) Pi clusters are awesome toy systems great to play with and learn on but have limited real world use (the only edge they have is the power consumption would be about half the PC)
