Quant development: Massive Parallel Computing(20000 cores) Vs Small 1600core SMP Cluster

What information should be needed to ask so that you can make a reasoned assessment and recommendation between this two options?

By “SMP Cluster” do you really mean “cluster of SMPs” ? Or do you mean a single
shared memory address space for hundreds of processors?
If the latter, what systems are you considering and how would you program it?

Are you really trying to ask if multi-threading is better than message passing at this scale?
