Our main goal is to use “smart performance” instead of brute money performance.
AMD and Intel Quad-core CPU-s have 30-40 GFLOPS. One NVIDIA 8800 GPU has about 300 GFLOPS; NVIDIA GTX 280 has 933 GFLOPS per card. So, our way, “smart performance” way, is to use NVIDIA GTX 280 GPU-s instead of conventional Intel/AMD CPU-s.
We start with 2 cards, total 1,8 TFLOPS, requiring as much as 47 conventional 4-core CPU-s (24 dual-socket motherboards).
In the future we might try to achieve 3,7 TFLOPS power, using four GTX 280 cards or future 295 cards.
