I went looking for a machine capable of this and got about halfway there
with http://www.tech-news.com/publib/pl2818.html which allows up to
248Gb memory -- near as I can tell the price for the maxed out system is
$2,546,200. Plus $3k/mo maintenance. Memory's still not quite enough,
but I'll bet it's fast. And a lot more reasonable at $1000 per Gb of
memory particularly when contrasted to the $1000 I paid for a single Mb
of memory back in 1984 or thereabouts.

1x http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16816101317
@ $1400

+ 8x http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820239276
@ $658

+ 4x http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819113036
@ $520

+ 2x

= $8744 for a 64-core box with 512GB of ram. Add another $1000 or so
for disks/SSD's depending on configuration. Not bad. There were times
I coulda used something like this.
