Taipei, Taiwan, Feb 23rd, 2009 - High specification and exquisite are not adequate anymore these days, people require practicality and cost-effective for things they bought. Based on this simple principle and needs coming from all over the world, the ASRock X58 SuperComputer motherboard is born. This year, ASRock will demonstrate the magnificent functionality and practicality of ASRock at Cebit 2009.
ASRock X58 SuperComputer
ASRock X58 SuperComputer is not any ordinary X58 chipset motherboard on the market. It is the only X58 motherboard worldwide that can be set up as a NVIDIA® Tesla® Personal Supercomputer. Unlike Supercomputer in the past, which requires gigantic and expensive workstations to run massive calculations or programs for scientists or engineers, ASRock X58 SuperComputer bears the responsibility of becoming a personal Supercomputer that is attainable with practical and affordable budget. This X58 motherboard is exclusively designed with 4 PCI-E x 16 with double-wide spacing slots, which makes it very flexible when installing any NVIDIA® SLI or ATI™ CrossFire graphics combinations. "The new X58 SuperComputer motherboard from ASRock is an excellent platform upon which to build an NVIDIA Tesla Personal Supercomputer," said Andrew Walsh, general manager, personal supercomputing at NVIDIA. "Supporting up to 4 NVIDIA GPUs, each delivering 1 teraflop of processing power, desktop systems built around the X58 SuperComputer motherboard will accelerate the pace of discovery for scientists and engineers around the world."
The computing power of personal Super Computer is equal to the performance of 250 workstations which is highly impressed by Leadtek Inc. "We are thrilled to collaborate with ASRock to showcase at Cebit 2009." said Richard Chou, General Manager of Computer Product Business Unit of Leadtek Research Inc. "As a leading manufacturer of professional graphics card solutions, this is a great opportunity to work with ASRock, a leading brand in motherboard manufacturing and design. We are confident this cooperation not only demonstrate the personal super computer capabilities of Tesla and X58 motherboard but also brings Workstation users a more valuable workstation experience."
The placement design of ASRock X58 SuperComputer is what ASRock proud of. The 4 double-wide spacing ASRock PCI-E x 16 slots allow the installation of 3 Tesla C1060 cards + 1 Quadro card. This configuration is perfect for installing your own personal supercomputer with a good balance of price and performance, and that's exactly the core value of ASRock motherboard. "It is a pleasure to co-work with Leadtek and NVIDIA® to demonstrate NVIDIA® Tesla Personal Supercomputer with ASRock X58 SuperComputer motherboard for Cebit Show." said LL Hsu, Chief Operation Officer of ASRock Inc. "It's the first chance to bring supercomputing power to Intel Core i7 platform, ASRock X58 SuperComputer is an excellent motherboard not only perfect for building Tesla Personal Supercomputer for scientists but also a good choice for consumers to build their SLI or CrosssFireX™ high-end gaming systems with its affordable installation costs and practical features."
