Can I use two processors in one computer?

That 'one' computer is really a cluster of two or more computers running together as one. This concept is used to string together several computers to create a supercomputer. Find out more at www.beouwulf-underground.org. You will also find other supercomputer clusters made in India. These two old chips clustered won't even outperform today's PIVs or AMD AthlonXPs. You need to create a huge cluster of fast processors to create a true supercomputer. Plus, ordinary applications don't work on such clusters, and is more targetted for science, research, and defense purposes.
