SGI’s new Octane III workstation takes the speed and performance that you’d usually find in a rack full of machines and puts it alongside your desk.

By leveraging modern miniaturization, the Octane III can handle up to 80 CPU cores, yes that’s EIGHT-ZERO CPU cores, along with up to 1TB, yes that’s ONE TERABYTE of RAM. If that’s not enough, the top-of-the line config has room for ten 2.5″ SATA II hard drives. And it all fits in a box that’s not much bigger than your average workstation tower (a 1-foot by 2-foot footprint).

The Octane III workstation can be purchased in a variety of insanely powerful configurations, including:

  • Ten dual-socket, Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5500 series-based nodes.
  • One dual-socket, Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5500 series-based workstation with advanced NVIDIA graphics and/or GP-GPU card support.
  • Nineteen single-socket, Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 3400 series-based nodes.
  • Nineteen single-socket, Dual-Core Intel Atom processor-based nodes.

Prices for the Octane III start at $7999 (USD) and go up from there. While that might sound like a lot for a desktop PC, this thing is in a league all by itself.

I can’t wait to play some CRYSIS on this bad boy.
