That's not a bad setup, though if you're sitting on a mountain of cash, upgrade options abound. Maxing out the RAM to 192GB, for example, adds around $2,070 to the price tag, and if you were to equip the system with four EVGA GeForce GTX 680 FTW+ 4GB graphics cards, you can add another $2,725 on top of that. Expensive, sure, and also crazy fast.
AVADirect's Personal Supercomputer is available now.
All this and no water cooling option? D: lol. 10k+ for max build xD
Who wants XEON chips for gaming?! Those things only work well when you have applications that do 1000's of parallel streams not single process apps like.. almost all games you'd want to play on this.
Also lmao at "65-in-1 card reader" thats a major selling point right there
Probably not for gaming. But as a Super Computer it would be bad ass for sure. (all it takes is cubic money)
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Dang that's one powerful thing, even if a little overkill.
I would have gone with the SR-2 though, as the older E5s were very overclockable and kicked butt, even in gaming. Xeons are great in single-threaded tasks too so maybe it won't hurt so much in single threaded tasks. There's definitely enough computing power to make sure 4 GTX680s are not bottlenecked.
192GB of RAM sounds crazy now... but we'll all have that one day soon.
My Amiga 1000 came with 256KB of RAM, but I got the expansion option to double it to a whopping 512KB - so I'd never need more. LOL.
And then later I bought a Toolbox (adds Amiga 2000 expansion slots to the Amiga 1000) and upped it to 2MB. It takes a long time to plug a bunch of individual RAM chips into an expansion card when you're a nervous teenager concerned with bending pins.
Now I'm sitting here with 12GB of installed RAM (20% in use) that I installed in all of 60 seconds. The world's moving fast.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I want this thing))
