There's a small error (by a factor of 7) in the figure caption -- the actual number of 10 Gbps optical links on this hub chip is 336, not 48.

Cool! The British Met Office should buy one so they can make wildly inaccurate weather forecasts more efficiently.

I hope to be able to balance my checkbook faster - and more accurately - with this new computer. I suspect the gaming community is the driving force behind the terabit/second of optical links to the system's main processor boards.
