Fancy having your very own personal supercomputer? SGI has launched the Octane III personal supercomputer.
The SGI Octane III is about the same size as a standard workstation PC, and it can handle up to 8- CPU cores, with up to 1TB of RAM, and up to 10 2.5 inch SATA II hard drives.
SGI’s Octane III offers a solution for workstation users wanting to reach dramatically higher levels of performance with minimal investment. With the support of up to 19 Intel® Xeon® processors, HPC users looking to enhance their workgroup productivity outside the data center can also utilize the benefits of the Octane III for faster discovery and quicker simulations,” said Richard Dracott, General Manager of High Performance Computing at Intel. “With certification from the Intel® Cluster Ready program, Octane III will provide a powerful, easy-to-deploy personal supercomputer.”
If you want one prices start at $7995 for the base model, I wonder how much the top model is with all the options, it looks like a serious peice of kit.
