GTC 2010 - AMAX GPU Personal Supercomputer has 4.12 Teraflops in one system

That's what $10,000 of computer will get you today

Nicole Scott of Netbook News is on the ground for us again and this time she is at NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference in San Jose.

 

 

In this video she found Shoulin Chua from AMAX Information Technologies who gave us an introduction to one of its GPU Personal Supercomputers. It fits in a couple Intel Westmere Xeon processors along with four NVIIDA Telsa C2050 GPU processors. Each one of the C2050 cards has 448 cores, so if you do the math that gives us the system a huge total of 1792 cores of processing power. All of that amazing power on tap within a system chassis translates to a mega 4.12 Teraflops of performance or enough to do all sorts of simulations and supercomputing applications.

 

The cost for such a system comes in at about $10,000 USD. Nicole, just hand over that check book and bring a few home for us, will you?
