Post HIPerSpace

Quote:
The UC San Diego recently unveiled the World's highest-resolution scientific display system for science visualization, boosting 36 NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600 professional GPUs to drive 286 million pixels worth of data.

The Highly Interactive Parallelized Display Space (HIPerSpace) features nearly 287 million pixels of screen resolution – more than one active pixel for every U.S. citizen, based on the 2000 Census.

The HIPerSpace is more than 10 percent bigger (in terms of pixels) than the second-largest display in the world, constructed recently at the NASA Ames Research Center . That 256-million-pixel system, known as the hyperwall-2, was developed by the NASA Advanced Supercomputing Division at Ames , with support from Colfax International.

I could render SO much with those. Awesome how they worked the name out to be Hiperspace, hehe.

hehe, some processing power indeed. But the most renderers that I know of work on the CPU, I only know of nvidia's gelato for GPU rendering. They should really port mental ray to CUDA
