Bright Side of News spotted a new GPU server from Colfax, it features eight NVIDIA Tesla C1060 cGPU cards for a computing power of up to 8 teraFLOPS.
During the GPU Tech Conference 09 at Fairmont Hotel in San Jose [CA], Colfax International demonstrated world's first GPU server featuring no less than eight Tesla C1060 cGPU cards. But the eight Tesla boards are not the big news here… Colfax created a motherboard featuring eight full-width PCIe Gen2 x16 slots. This means that each cGPU gets data with full bandwidth.
According to the information we got in hand by Mike Fay, VP of Sales, the system is powered by two Intel Xeon 5500 processors [up to the top-of-the-line W5590, 3.33 GHz ones], it can get up to 192GB of system memory [DDR3-1066 or DDR3-1333, depending on module capacity]. Using standard-sized 2GB or 4GB modules, you should be able to have 72GB of DDR3-1333 memory.
