As I recall, WRI sells a version of Mathematica for Cray supercomputers.  
(It was $250,000 not including the Cray the last time I looked, but that's 
years ago.)  I would guess the Cray remains the fastest machine for running 
the kernel.

Mathematicians are like Frenchmen:  whenever you say something to them,
they translate it into their own language, and at once it is something
entirely different.                                    J. W. v. GOETHE
