    What do you get when you get 8 cores from 2xXeons 5xxx series and a 1GB FireGL?

    Well, just to praise on how quick de novo sequencing can get when you can enable all 8 CPU nodes and riggin on GPGPU..

    I know its a little odd to be putting it in here, but I just need somewhere I can gas this excitement..

    New server came in with 8 spanking cores of Xeons and a FireGL with GPGPU patch enabled for our protein searching broadcast and it instantaneously puts the existing dual dual core Opteron to shame..

    3x scaling on existing parallel search speeds and we can now properly do real time peptide matching over our fish cable interface to all our mass spectrometers..

    GPGPU FTW!!...

    Alright.. I'll go back to work now..

    Re: What do you get when you get 8 cores from 2xXeons 5xxx series and a 1GB FireGL?

    .. would love to fold for team hexus but unfortunately this server will not be folding.. , far too much crucial data to be leaving redundant cores folding just in case more data comes in from the instruments..

    Would happily get my home server and systems to fold for Hexus..

    Any details on those? was previously folding for HardOCP.. get me the detials and I'll get it amended..

    Re: What do you get when you get 8 cores from 2xXeons 5xxx series and a 1GB FireGL?

    What's the server type?
    I had a briefing from IBM late last year on their 3950M2, they take 4 quad cores at 3.2Ghz and 256GB of RAM, BUT you can link up to FOUR of them together which to the OS look like one server, so....
    64 x 3.2Ghz cores
    1TB RAM

    Nice

    Well, its on a rack now and with the next grant payment, we'll probably get another rack with another redundant storage server..
