Verari Systems, a premier developer of powerful, platform-independent blade computing systems, announced the NemeSys X64 dual processor graphics workstation, designed to meet the computational and graphics needs of the most demanding technical and creative professionals.
The NemeSys X64 dual processor graphics workstation--based on 64-bit Intel Xeon processors at 3.60 GHz with 800 MHz system bus and Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology--is one of the first workstations on the market to use the latest high-performance PCI-Express NVIDIA graphics card. The NemeSys X64 dual processor workstation is available immediately at prices for custom configurations starting at $3,400.
The NemeSys X64 is designed for the most intensive graphical and computational applications, including game development, frame rendering for filmmaking, seismic processing, computational fluid dynamics, and scientific computing and visualization, delivering extreme I/O and graphics bandwidth with the newest PCI Express graphics interface and up to 8GB of dual-channel SDRAM memory support. PCI Express provides twice the available bandwidth compared to the AGP 8x graphics interface. NemeSys X64's Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology enhances the IA-32 workstation platform, providing increased memory addressability and related instructions to deliver greater application flexibility. Storage options include the ability to house up to six hard drives, allowing for up to 1.5TB of storage capacity.
In addition, Verari Systems' Cycles@Work software allows customers to seek out and harvest available workstation compute cycles, augmenting blade server clusters to speed time to completion for computationally intensive tasks. For example a film studio can render frames with special effects not only in their blade server compute cluster, but also in off hours, on hundreds of artists' workstations when the artists are not using them, thereby shortening the time to get a film released.
