[SBU] 1.5 Billion Pixel Reality Deck - 240 Xeon 6 Core/80 AMD V9800 - Page 2

post #11 of 37
Oh man, they're all 1440p samsungs.

"An 18-node visualization cluster provides the rendering backbone for the Reality Deck facility. Each node features dual Intel Xeon CPUs, each with 6 cores, as well as 48 GB of RAM and 1 TB of local storage. ....Every machine contains 4 AMD Firepro V9800 GPUs. "

Found more here is another link. This one has more info. http://www.cs.stonybrook.edu/~realitydeck/#

The Reality Deck is comprised of 416 Samsung S27A850D LCD displays. The displays have been extensively customized to reduce their bezel width and install a mounting framework for attachment to the Reality Deck structure. With each monitor driven at its native resolution of 2560 by 1440, the combined resolution of the Reality Deck exceeds 1.5 billion pixels.

An 18-node visualization cluster provides the rendering backbone for the Reality Deck facility. Each node features dual Intel Xeon CPUs, each with 6 cores, as well as 48 GB of RAM and 1 TB of local storage. The nodes are interconnected over Infiniband and Gigabit Ethernet. Every machine contains 4 AMD Firepro V9800 GPUs that can drive up to 6 monitors at their native resolution. Effectively, each cluster node can drive up to 24 monitors for almost 90 megapixels of visual space

Weird though on this part of their website it list 18 node instead of the 20 in OP. . I wonder what kind of Xeon they are. Im guess older since they are 6 core? I was really surprised it only uses 48 GB of RAM.

EDIT: CLAM SLAMMER beat me to it. biggrin.gif

the spec's are no doubt impressive, but you think they could have went the extra mile on this. boatloads of money is not enough to get rid of the bezzle's, apparently you need a magician. there is still black plastic between the screens. is it not possible for them to somehow soldier the screens together without the bezzle's leaving no separation? its like looking through a very ugly window.

It's cool, but why couldn't you just use one screen? Don't most application with images in 4k range allow for a zoom?

They said they customized it extensively to make the bezel thinner. I don't see how they didn't completely remove it. It would be possible with a good enough backing IMO.
