In the rack more server most of them connected either Gigabit Ethernet or even optical connectivity *sighs*
I think these where Itanium based servers. it got too confusing after a while. Too much, too many, too noisy.
Servers .. servers and more server from IBM in this rack.
When we move a few meters we'll notice more servers, again all to calculate/compute/emulate chipset designs.
These are 1U racks with two motherboards per server each with 2 or 4 CPU's. I believe NVIDIA opted the Pentium 4 CPU. Now don't get scared but you see these things all over the place, NVIDIA utilized roughly 3000 CPU's in these racksaver racks. If you stand in front of them you'll notice the heat generated by the. You can compare the heat exhausted with the heat from your average blowdryer. Incredible impressive.
Now then, let's move on towards the second server room which is slowly filled more and more goodness.
This is a pictorial tour of NVIDIA's HQ in Santa Clara which we visited in May 2003. We'll show you the buildings and more interestign the server-park.
