An interesting distraction I guess. Of course I was using it for "inflated sense of uniqueness" - the belief that HPC is unique in wanting parallelism and/or FLOPs and/or high bandwidth memory in a single computer.

To be fair, HPC is unique in using "large number of separate computers as a cluster", but that's an entirely different form of parallelism.
