We used them in the supercomputer space long long ago. Mount 8 die to
ceramic substrate, mount those to Rogers boards. Thermal wasn't really an

Was an interesting project. The Unix kernel scheduler had to make
scheduling decisions based on all the usual criteria plus how far away the
free CPU and/or memory was.
