BOXX :: We Know VFX. And It Shows. :: APEXX Series

32 cores

15tb of HD space (15k RPM SCSI option or 10K RPM SATA)

128G of memory

Duel Quadro or Fire GL cards (I'm sure if you really wanted you could get 8 series or whatever)

Duel 850w power supplies

My cell phone has a quantum computer built into it. I use it to remove the red eye from the built in camera.

They should have the fastest computer in the world play a chess game against the best chess player in the world. Like they did a few years back or how ever long ago that was.
