No it cannot handle a bunch of a hundred targets at only ten times the cost. It is already parallelized. A hundred targets is a hundred times the cost.

But let us not think small. Suppose the president says "Break James Donald's key. I don't care how much it costs. The sky is the limit" and they devote the entire US gross national product for a year to breaking James Donald's key in a year.

Then they can break a 170 bit key.

But I rather doubt that they will.
