Tyan shows desktop supercomputer
The Inquirer sighted an eight-CPU Tyan desktop system at CeBit today. The Tyan Typhoon Person Super Computer (PSC) reportedly sports four dual-socket blade systems in a single small form factor case. It also supports up to sixteen CPU cores, and features AMD and Intel variants capable of using up to 64GB and 32GB of RAM, respectively. Each blade in the PSC is powered by an individual 350W power supply, bringing the machine's maximum power draw to a total of 1.4 Kilowatts. However, despite the PSC's likely heat output, it's reported to be "really quiet"—at least relative to the CeBit show floor background noise.
