Well there does exist cheaper options, like the $4k T4240QDS-PB, which
is 12 core (24 threads) 1.8Ghz 64 bit powerpc.
The P5040RDB is $3k for a quad core 64 bit powerpc.
That's still not hobby level pricing though. Better than the price of
the talos, but also not ppc64el compatible (as far as I know).
