Looks harmless right? Well take a look at the installed hardware:
What you're drooling over is SIX nVidia's upcoming Tesla C870 which is based on an 8800GTS. These strictly performance-orientated cards don't come with any video outputs and the one's installed here feature 1Gb of memory each, but once released officially, they'll come with 1.5Gb of memory. What also may be hard to see is the dual Quad-Core Xeon 5335 CPU's that give this rig a ridiculous EIGHT cores! Now before you think about asking for screenshots, here they are:
And below you can see all 8 cores in all their glory
And finally, the spec sheet:
In it's current configuration, the Titan's maximum performance in terms of Gigaflops is ~2070. But once in production, that number is expected to reach 3108 Gigaflops! With performance of this level, one Titan allows you to replace over 50 dual-Quad Core workstations.
