Industrial and scientific imaging applications are processing more and more pixel data. In fact, some imaging applications have pixel processing rates on the order of hundreds of Mbytes per second. If you are running such demanding applications on conventional machines, you can run into problems because there's only so much bandwidth available. A sluggish network connection, a slow-down in your inspection procedures, or lost data are all possible because all the operations performed on a host computer compete for the system's resources. Even machines that operate at rates of 3 GHz may have several demanding tasks to process in parallel.
