Other specs of the ESC 1000 supercomputer include 24GB of RAM, a Quadro FX 5800 graphics card, 500GB HDD and 1100W power supply, housed in a chassis with dimensions of just 445 x 217.5 x 545 mm.

ASUS aim the system towards specialised environments such as for the purposes of scientific research, image manipulation and engineering modeling. The system is apparently ready for mass production as of now, but is yet to give an actual date as to its availability or the hefty price tag to come with it.
