Wanna see what crazy is? How about 23 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 video cards installed in a single rig. Yep, that's not a typo. Named Atlas Folder, this wholesale pack of G200b GPUs (dubbed: folding server farm) is like an industrial grinder for Folding@Home. Watch the cool YouTube video here and feel free to leave a comment. I bet even NVIDIA engineers dream for such a monstrous distributed computing station.

Ah, so not all in one machine, but all in one rack, and only 17 actually in the rack...cool I guess. I wish I could afford to do something like that.

All running on MSI AMD 790FX motherboards (no SLI). It's far from being the "ultimate gaming hardware", as only one of those 23 cards will be able to render a single 3D application at a time. Should've named it "ultimate folding hardware".

Unless someone does a real 16-gpu single rig, I'm not going to be impressed. Money = more PPD, but it doesn't always get you e-peen points! ;)

The only thing exciting about that, or potentially exciting, is if one of the pretty blue lights suddenly went red or dead.

I|m sure that this guy has had a lot of fun building 6 machines into a 19 inch rack. But 6x 4 GTXs could be improved using a PCIe expansion bay. Since this is a folding farm and not GPU SLI, he doesnt need x16 slots, so an extension bay would be quite practical. He could use x4 for the cards, and easily drive 8 or 16 cards from ONE PC.
