Fermi based GPUs without a fan?
Fermis without a fan? Isn't that a recipe for a fire or have Nvidia halved the clock speeds?
Here's just what you need to play Crysis. The bespoke server division of Dell, called Data Center Solutions and accounting for a sizeable portion of Dell's quarterly server volumes, has cooked up a PCI-Express expansion chassis that can house up to 16 GPU co-processors. The new expansion chassis is part of the PowerEdge C …
last time these cards were mentioned on here.
it was pointed out to me that they will all be running in an air-conditioned server room most likely, so in this case the GPUs take advantage of the server / server room's cooling.
probably won't last long in your coolermaster HAF932 though :)
Imagine the testing the poor product testers had to do..
*boom* *zap* *schhhhwam* *splat*
'no, honestly, I'm just testing that 16 graphics cards work'
(OK, the Nvidia computation cards don't actually have a video output, so technically they couldn't play Crysis. Don't know about the ATI version)
Still, must be a heck of a lot of computation power there.
