How much is a celeron chip ?, looking at the book they created custom
chips (1536 of them !). They suggest that those on lower budgets could
try using fpga's, but they say that that would be much slower. I suspect
that celeron's would be prohibitivly expensive for that amount, and wouldn;t
be as effective as custom chips.
