Modern supercomputers are built by combining thousands of small computer servers and using software to turn them into a single entity.

LOL And it all began, when some smart assembler programmer utilized the 6502 chip in the Floppy drive of the C64 to aid in graphics calculations. Before that Raytracing on C64 was a matter of several days
