Cray announces CX1, desktop supercomputer
At $25,000 the new Cray CX1 isn’t exactly affordable, but if you’re looking for a supercomputer that will be able to fit on your desk this is it.
Together with Microsoft and Intel, Cray has announced a new supercomputer that can use up to eight nodes and run up to 16 Intel Xeon processors. That means with quad-core chips you’ll have up to 64 processor cores to do your number crunching.
The CX will also have up to 4 terabytes of internal storage and can address up to 64GB of memory.
Cray has not released any performance specs yet on the machine but suffice to say it will kick major ass. For more info check out the product page here.
