Talking Just one Cray T932 supercomputer?

From http://www.mersenne.org/primenet/status.shtml:
"The virtual machine's sustained throughput is ... equivalent to ... 442.5 of Cray's most powerful T932 supercomputers, at peak power."

Has anyone ever asked Cray corp about a win-win partnership? If they "loaned" GIMPS the use of even just one T932 sitting idle in their show room or warehouse, GIMPS would advance noticeably AND Cray would have a great marketing edge ... a real life project to show how F-A-S-T they really are.

I don't think Cray uses the T932 anymore. Supercomputing technology has advanced quite a lot since then...

We should buy GIMPS a Cray X1E, which can go up to 147 TFLOP/s.
