Puget Systems Launches Two New Quad-Socket Machines

Puget Systems, which is not related to the automaker Peugeot in any way despite Google auto-correcting it, has introduced its new Peak Quad CPU workstations. These workstations will pack up to four AMD or Intel processors. Thanks to the choice between AMD and Intel, users can have either up to 48 CPU cores with Intel Xeon configurations, or a staggering 64 cores when using an AMD Opteron configuration. Not only that, users can also install up to 1 TB of DDR3 ECC memory, though that costs about $24,000 in itself.

Users can also opt for Intel Xeon Phi Co-Processors as well as Tesla cards, Quadro cards or GTX-Series graphics cards from Nvidia and there's plenty of storage options available, too. By default, the systems are configured with the Rosewill Blackhawk Ultra enclosure along with an Antec HCP 1300W 80-Plus Platinum PSU. For cooling, buyers will find four Noctua NH-U12DO (AMD) or four Noctua NH-U12DX (Intel) heatsinks.

The systems can be configured immediately, but the pricing isn't exactly consumer-friendly. Still, be sure to play with the online configurator if you’re curious. Be warned though, these machines are NOT geared for consumer use, at all.

    Great product, I wouldn't build my own professional system simply because I want a warranty and other support services and don't have time to troubleshoot for a few days. Time is money and even though for my purposes this is overkill I think their prices are reasonable and their warranty services are not too expensive. I think I found where I am getting my next workstation

    Er, really? 64 cores is, "staggering"? Please get with the times; an SGI UV 2000
    can have up to 2048 cores and 64TB RAM, and that's a single combined system,
    not a cluster. Heck, their *entry level* UV 20 has up to 48 cores and 1.5TB RAM. :D
