This made it to Engadget today. Twenty three (23!) GTX 295's! :o

There is a post on there that talked about how he managed all the GPU clients and it is an interesting read. I haven't gone far enough so I am curious as to what kind of rack hardware he's getting. If I am building a farm I want a rack like that too.

266k ppd and counting (it includes his other boxen too so the number is not accurate).

Any of you have something new to show about your farm, rack, and multi-node management tricks?

The Model M is not for the faint of heart. You either like them or hate them.

That one guy has links to some affordable hardware to DIY, too bad the link to the 9800GX2 is no longer there.
