Easily. Try 400+ 8-processor CPUs w/ 20+gigs of ram each, 2 or more very high-end GPU in each machine. Plus high end bus interfaces and more money than you can imagine. They can process several thousand WUs a day without breaking a sweat. There are many user out here with that kind of power. I have seen them.

Many users are IT techs, working for large corporations, universities, etc with hugh computer systems that the ITs used to process work units during the off-peak hours. And some are users with more time and money than most of us have.

Welcome to distributed computing!
