    To date they have donated $40,480,300. But what does that have to do with the story? I would link to the source but it would seem you need some practice with the Google machine.

    Interesting news! I wonder what this move will result in?

    A little off topic, but yeah, Intel does a fair amount of charity. They also have one of the better matching programs in the industry.

    I'd like to think intel showed up with a bunch of briefcases full of money to buy the place.

    Interesting.

    Intel moving into the supercomputer market more? or rather taking more inhouse.

    Good time to snap up a bargain, InfiniBand has been fizzling for a few years now.

    Hopefully they develop the IP for their own uses, or at least stick to the HPC sector, instead of trying to thrust yet another communications medium to the market - there's a reason InfiniBand has been fizzling!
