Avatar: Seriously powerful computer specsMikey 5 comments
Want to know what sort of system was required to render those amazing scenes in James Camerons' Avatar? Check this out.
Thirty four racks, each made up of 32 machines with 40,000 processors and 104 terabytes of memory. For the last month of production those 40,000 processors were doing 7 or 8 gigabytes of data per second 24 hours a day.
Those are some seriously insane numbers. Obviously traditional cooling wasn't an option.
