The future of Beowulf-class PC clusters for large-scale scientific and engineering applications will be determined by three issues: system scalability; latency tolerant applications development; and software environments and tools. This paper focuses on the first of these, scalability, which is sensitive to aspects of the remaining two. For the studies and findings described, we consider system designs capable of integrating hundreds or thousands of processors
