Supermicro Shows Off 80-Core Xeon Server

The server board has four modules, each of which can carry two upcoming 10-core Xeon E7 CPUs. Intel's new 32nm Westmere EX will debut as E7-2800 series (two sockets), E7-4800 series (four sockets) as well as E7-8800 series (eight sockets) with six, eight and ten cores as well as clock speeds ranging from 1.73 to 2.4 GHz.   

The 5086B-TRF has also room for up to four Nvidia Tesla GPGPU cards as well as 16 DDR3 memory slots for each memory slot for a maximum of 1 TB, the manufacturer said. Supermicro uses a PSU with 2800 watts capacity, but wants to offer the option of a 3200 watt unit in future.

Prices have not been announced.

    Holy cow. Technology moves so fast. I just upgraded my Commodore 64 to a 486DX2. I think I only have 1 core.

    I wonder what this would do for Batch raw photo and uncompressed 1080p/60FPS video editing..... could it be done at 2-4 times real time on windows 7 64bit?
