How many graphics cards are required for a full-on Star Wars flight simulator in 4K real-time? LOTS.

Disney's upcoming Star Wars flight simulator is part of their new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge experience, and is currently powered by 8 x NVIDIA Quadro P6000 graphics cards, which are available on Amazon for $4700 each. Adding up 6 of them together, we have a grand total of a wallet-busting $37,600 just for the graphics cards alone.
