The AMD Server team is kicking March off with a new contest. We are seeking your best essays, videos, or blog posts documenting how you might use 48 cores...Tell us what you can do with 48 cores to make the world a better, more interesting place, delivering the top performance or optimizing power. Of course creativity will be awarded, so don’t be afraid to show the fun side of servers...Here’s a tip: playing World of Warcraft faster than anyone is probably not going to get you the good stuff. Think about what you can do to help society, to help others. That will give you an edge.
I would use it to read the news on Hothardware.com lol
Core i7 920|EVGA X58|GTX 660 TI & 460se for PHYSX|2x30GB Vertex RAID0|5x1.5TB RAID5

That would make a nice Folding@Home rig for sure!
What would I do with a 48-core computer?
Brag. A lot.
"I didn't cry when Bambi's mother was shot... but I cried when HAL was turned off."
World Peace! lol and what dev and clem said :P lol.
can i enter for someone else in my family? im not 18 :( lol
I dount think I would want to be on the receiving end of that power bill lol
Hum i wonder how much power would is consume anyways...
I'd try to write some wicked physics engine code, and simulate a really really large game world. It seems to me that a certain amount of physics engines either don't calculate things you can't see, or minimize the accuracy of the simulation for far away things. Imagine a game world where you are on one side of a city, while an NPC on the other side of the city knocks a box off a pile of boxes, and when you come around, the boxes aren't all nicely stacked. Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it isn't happening.
I could think of many things to use a setup like this, and the 48 cores although free, do not have to be used at once. So I could split them into 4 computers with multi cpu boards if I wanted, or just use 8 when I was on it. I am also in school for network administration so I could definitely use it and the OS to learn. One thing specifically is AMD cool and Quiet if enabled it turns off unneeded cores, so I don't think the power would be used unless running something that used them all.
:Di just submitted my essay under my dad's name xD
Having a processor capable of translating any language to english and back again in real time would be cool.
And the next trick is putting it all into star trek sized jewlrey.
I'm sure an engineering or medical institution will be able to make good use out of this.
with 48 cores id finaly be able to build a mathmatic supper computer to help unravil the secrets of the univers #1 Unifide convergance #2 why the hell evreyone is so dam obsesed with celebrities
I'd play freecell.
That game is very cpu intensive lmao...i'd play solitairy...i would sell the other 3 processor on ebay and keep the 12 core for myself :))..hope it works with only 12 cores...
Dude only 1 game of solitary? gibbersoms rig runs 2 :P lol. i would run 4 :P beat that! :)
As far as what I do on the computer, I do not contribute or better society in any way. If for some strange reason this arrived at my front door, I would give it to someone who could use this power to make the world better.
Personally 48 cores is overkill but if someone can do real good with it then hey, I'd envy that guy for having the most powerful system there is, and for helping the world with it.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
Well your probably going to have to donate it to HH :) lol jk but who can you donate this too that can really help the world that doesn't already have a even faster super computer? :D
