Things that cost over $1 Million dollars usually don't have a sticker
price Lina.  ;)  A maximum configuration Altix UV 1000 w/2560 cores,
16TB of RAM, NUMALink routers, disk storage, etc, will cost well over
$10 Million USD.  The smallest UV 100 configuration that anyone would
likely buy would be a 32 socket UV 100, which would cost several hundred
thousand dollars, if not over $1 Million.

You won't find new SGI Supers outside of government funded labs,
universities, or Fortune 500 companies, specifically pharma research
companies.  No one else can afford them.
