    Holy ****.

    I suppose the real question is: Could that farm finally run Crysis?

    I'm just waiting for the yawn-worthy 'But can it run Crisis?' post...
    LoL...

    That's a serious set up then. Although in high tech industry I suppose this is nothing exceptional and more run of the mill?

    He did mention that the hardware wasn't in production yet, who else has Blade Servers with 36GB of memory and twin Six Core processors? The F@H run was just to burn in the lot, anyway.

    Still an astounding amount of horsepower there. I want that in my basement. Heck I'd build a basement to house that.

    Although I fear the power bills would be a bit of a sod.
