|Compucon HPC Workstation|
This system is a bold attempt to bring high performance computing to the desktop for a very affordable price. This Compucon HPC Workstation is housed in a standard Compucon server chassis which can rest on the desktop or be mounted in a standard 19" cabinet.
The CPU is an Intel Core i7 3930K with 16GB of DDR3 memory. Computation is powered by Tesla on CUDA. Graphical display is handled by a standard graphics card.
It has 2 low cost SATA HDD that can be installed as redundant and hot swappable, or just on host RAID and externally accessible.
The system is upgradeable or scaleable to a certain limit.
The following slides were produced by this system showing how a galaxy evolved over time. The system simulated the evolution with 14336 stars (this number is small in a galaxy), and the 3 slides show 3 different scales of display.
