I mean that some people may try to interpret the "supercomputer" marketing promise quite literally rather than figuratively. And then complain about the GFLOPS numbers being much lower than their unrealistic expectations. Though if we compare the Pine64 board with supercomputers from 1980's, then it is surely going to wipe floor with them :-)

BTW, some people are having fun trying to replicate ancient supercomputers - http://www.chrisfenton.com/homebrew-cray-1a/

Yes, and I must admit that I'm from back in the day when computer did not exist at all... not commercially, anyway. When I was a teen I worked for a lab that had an IBM 360 model 44 on the 2nd floor... several disk drives all the size of washing machines, a card reader, and a selectric typewriter for console ! ugh.  

The PineA64 is literally thousands of times more powerful than that 360 mod44. (super computer on an index card)
