Cray Supercomputer

With prices starting at $25,000, the CX1 Cray Supercomputer “comes loaded with Windows HPC Server 2008 and incorporates up to 8 nodes and 16 Intel Xeon CPUs (dual- or quad-core); additionally, it boasts up to 4TB of internal storage, 64GB of memory per node and interoperates nicely with Linux.” Video after the break.

The CX1 can hold up to eight computing blades�though the storage and visual blade each take up two slots, so the model they were showing had four computing blades, and one of each. The one benchmark they currently have is that it hits 768 Gigaflops, which they hope to bump over 800 with some fine-tuning.
