True, true. That's a lot of computing power!
A bit of an update:
Yeah. Absolutely amazing!
Best I've ever had in my BOINCview farm is about 14 threads (an i7, 2 duals, and a pair of singles)
That's just ridiculous as I said before. Geez, servers are gonna crap out from all the results getting returned
Ridiculous, I won't argue with. I am very impressed with anyone willing to spend this much on a DC project.
However, I doubt that it will cause any issues for the WCG servers
I just can't get over the it!
I know you didn't mean it literally
I am just in awe, I have already gone back and read the thread again twice today
I dunno about that...
Pixars rendering farm
Can you imagine that running WCG?
I can't... I think that system brought them back down to 1 frame per cpu hour or something.
Now for the kicker-
1,024 Intel 2.8GHz Xeon processors
I wonder if they're constantly rendering. They have to have some free time right? Pixar doesn't put out movies that often. Surely they could switch the units over to WCG for a little between-rendering crunch time.
I wonder what would happen if he got into F@H as well
Bah they're probably P4 xeons no match for 10 core i7 hex cores.
Maybe we should write to Steve Jobs and convince him to do so
Maybe we can all tell him we will buy Ipods and Mac's if you does it.
But can it play crysis?
Yes it can. A single core i7 running crysis = 7.36FPS using windows WARP and a Penryn quad @ 3.0GHz = 5.69FPS. Assuming linear scaling at best times that by 1024 and I'd imagine it could run crysis very well.
Well, each hex core could be ~50k PPD. So that's ~500k right there
Crysis also needs some GPU power
I was thinking more along the lines of filling up all those empty PCIe slots
Oh. Well that would work too. But 500k PPD is still very nice
DANG! if i had the money i would try and top this off
He pulled over 90k yesterday!
93,725 to be exact!
And nearly 150k today!
Not if your using warp
Warp being windows advanced rasterization program.
Ion, whats the number to get your badge here? Is it 100,000?
Also, anyone whos a member on XS may have got the email from Movieman about the next WCG event in November. I'm glad to say I'll be participating.
150k, that's insane
