The FPA option is a 125 Transputer hypercube coprocessor which can also
be used to run concurrent Lisp through shared memory.
I'm baffled ;-)
Why does a machine of this class have an FPA option. I would think it should be standard
It's already pretty fast without it. You'd have to be pretty desperate
to need to accelerate it even more.
I'm even more baffled by how you configure 125 nodes as a hypercube.
Sounds like a four-dimensional hyper-pentagonal-prism, with five nodes
along each edge.
