4x9800GX2 based super computer

found this on engadget:

Researchers in belgium just built up a super computer based on 4xMSI 9800GX2 and reported that with the use of the GPU parallel processing power they have been able to reconstruct images from tomography scan in less than 30 seconds while it took over an hour using super computer or cluster computers and best of all for less than 4000 euros.



check their website and video for more info...

another good and free advertisement for nvidia in the GPU/CPU war...

the mobo is a MSI K9A2 Platinum with 4xPCI16Ex slots. However as they mentioned it is not 4way SLI, only 2 cards can run in SLI, so no big improvement for gaming anyway and they are far from the top 3DMark2006 score, but still havea very decent frame rate in crysis LOL...

and they can't even use SLI in their application as it is developped in nvidia-cuda which does not support SLI...

Pretty Amazing even after seeing that it is a Crossfire board.

Those GPU temp are really high. They should do watercooling on them
