80 Core SuperComputer!
Are you an engineer? well then here's the supercomputer for you! SGI has released a workstation for the masses. Okay, maybe not the masses but it's probably more affordable than you might think. It has 80 cores and 1TB of memory. More than I'll ever need to be sure. And yes, I bet you could play crisis on it.
For a simple, out-of-the-box experience, Octane III ships as a factory-tested, pre-integrated platform with broad HPC application support — powerful enough for the most complex applications in the world. These include fluid dynamics, quantum mechanics, molecular dynamics, seismic processing, data analytics, rendering, visualization and computer-aided design, among many other HPC applications.
