Worlds Most Powerful Desktop Supercomputer

Scientist at the University of Antwerp created the current world's most powerful desktop supercomputer, the Fastra II, which rises a total of 13 NVIDIA chipsets.

The Fastra II has a 2.66GHz Intel Core i7 Processor for its main processor, and it has six dual-GPU GeForce GTX 295 graphics cards and a Single GeForce GTX275, which gives a total of 13 GPUs. The NVIDIA cards can accelerate CUDA and other general purpose computing tasks, and this gives the Fastra II a massive 12 Terraflops of computing power.

Check out the video below to learn more about how the Fastra II really works.
