I would say dont worry about the phi's, MESA currently runs slower on them
than on a normal machine. So from pure performance/cost point i'd say
ignore them unless you want to help develop MESA on a phi.

Otherwise i'd think any multi-core machine with alot of RAM would be the
best bet for running lots of models on one machine.
