MIT Researchers assemble 16-GPU Supercomputer – Runs Crysis at 580 FPS

by Dhiram Shah


MIT graduate student Nicolas Pinto and David Cox and James DiCarlo recently assembled an impressive 16-GPU ‘monster’ composed of 8x9800gx2s donated by NVIDIA. The high-throughput method they promote can also use other ubiquitous technologies like IBM’s Cell Broadband Engine processor (included in Sony’s Playstation 3) or Amazon’s Elastic Cloud Computing services. The team is also involved in PetaVision project on the Roadrunner, the world’s fastest computer.
