Qarnot plans on using CPUs to create literal space heaters

Anyone got any idea what kind of price we can expect these to be once they eventually reach the consumer? I'm guessing at least £1500. 3 Ryzen Pros or i7s are probably £1200 alone.

And I imagine those buying compute power from Qarnot are not going to appreciate a fraction of the speeds in the summer if people switch these off or to their minimum.

Apple is building a datacentre just outside Viborg, Denmark.

They offered the waste heat to the city for free. But nooooo says the government, then we lose money on taxes

Last thing i heard they are still working on it, it would be absolutely stupid/bad for mother natur not to use it.

On topic, awesome idea. As long as there is a certainty of the usage, so they don't idle in the winter
