These Utah types are trying it again. The Achilles' heel of such
architecture is memory bandwidth. I doubt they have the $$$s to mix FPGA
with embedded DRAM. Plus, their instructions are rather braindead, but if
you happen to use the right kind of benchmark, you can sure generate lots
of meaningless scary numbers. </yawn>
