In 1996 D. J. Bernstein wrote "The Dubner Cruncher is a card that can multiply and divide large integers at supercomputer speed." As machines have sped up this is no longer true, but at the time the cards were quite amazing! Based on real time digital signal processing chips with homegrown software, these cards turned a desk-top PC into quite a calculating machine. They were build amd sold by Harvey Dubner and his son. See [Caldwell1993] for more information.
