Transputers and its Descendants

So two weeks ago I was trying to recall the name of a daughterboard based CPU card and it came back to me, it was the Transputer.

I was also wondering when we would see video cards specifically built for computation as opposed to driving displays. It turns out that I did not have to wait too long. NVIDIA just announced the Tesla C1060 Computing Processor.
