NASA Selects SGI Supercomputer

NASA's new SGI Altix system is a computer nerdís wet dream, with 1024 dual core processors and 4TB of memory, the first thing Iíd do with it is start Folding for Team 33.

Driven by 1,024 Dual-Core Intel(R) Itanium(R) 2 processors, the new system will generate 13.1 TFLOPs of compute power. The system's dual-core processors allow more computing power per square foot, enabling NASA to pack more computing power into its supercomputing center. NASA also acquired an ultra-dense 240TB SGI(R) InfiniteStorage 10000 system to efficiently handle the massive data storage requirements.

You have got to be kidding me.

That's so much **** processing power.

Haha, they should of used Intels 80 core's for that. Just imagein.

1,024 80 core CPU's. That'd be 81,920 cores. That's alot of processing power.
