polymorphic computer

polymorphism = the occurrence of different forms, stages, or types in individual organisms or in organisms of the same species, independent of sexual variations

"BOFFINS WORKING for the US military contractor Raytheon have come up with what they are computers that can adopt different forms depending on what they have to run.
Called, Monarch (Morphable Networked Micro-Architecture) the computer has been developed to tackle the large data volume of sensor systems as well as their signal and data processing throughput requirements.

It outperformed the Intel quad-core Xeon chip by a factor of 10, claimed Uros.
When stuck in an array containing six microprocessors Monarch has managed 64 gigaflops with more than 60 gigabytes per second of memory bandwidth and more than 43 gigabytes per second of off-chip data bandwidth. "
