And octanes...Nick is absolutely right, but you have to spend well
over $2500 to get an Octane with anywhere near the performance of an
Indigo2 MaxImpact which can be had for $800.
The only advantage for the octane in that case is expandability to
multiple CPUs and availability of higher-end CPUs than R10Ks (pretty
high-end to start with)...
