Quad Core? Not enough, how about 960!

Here's a link to a you tube video that features a "personal supercomputer". It has 960 cores and can be yours for under $10,000.00.

The future of the personal computer is just around the corner

that is a monster Joe.......

i saw these ''Telsa'' cards a while back & i always wondered how it would help with game physics ?? they have no DVI ports though so they must work in conjuction with a standard GPU.

1x Telsa & 1x GTX280 in SLI would stomp, surly...???

We're flat out getting apps / games to utilize 4 cores properly now...

Heh - can't SLI different types of GPUs, you know that, skunk

Anyhoo, I think one of those Tesla machines would be a lot cheaper than, say, a CRAY, right?

i know johnG but these telsa cards have no DVI ports, so they either work in conjunction with a standard GPU or there is some other way the data is processed & placed on the screen i have no clue how they work but, but im sure that given their raw computing power it could help while gaming (in some way)

i think these telsa units are supposed to replace your CPUs calculations, so could you imagine one of these paired with a GTX280 or 260, IT WOULD STOMP...

but can someone enlighten me as to how they function..?? surly it dont send the signal back up the PCI bus..??

Well I remeber on NewEgg.com seeing a physics accelerator. It had no video output. They paired with a GPU. I am sure your theroies are correct. Would you be even able to run games on that? Does it even run a Windows Environment?

They aren't actually display cards. They are gpgpu (General Purpose Graphics Processing Unit )

The telsa cards and quadro are actually just lots and lots of shader cores put together to do certain tasks programmed in CUDA which can speed it up to real time.

Such as lame encoding is done as soon as you click go if you were to use one of these cards. It is also super powerful in F@H and other programs that can use them.

So yes you would need another graphics card to play games and display windows etc...
This doesn't do any of that.

but i would love to have one of these for rendering (CAD+Videos(hd))
IN REAL TIME...
now that WOULD BE AWESOME
pls adobe/autodesk make it possible....

it all has to do with drivers nvidia would put...
but i doubt that nvidia would make this for gaming...
this is more oriented to reserch as you saw in the video...
just get 3 9800 and do tri-sli...
or if not some 3870x2 's
would run crysis like buttah..lol
