At CeBIT this week, the lads at TechPowerUp have spotted what Patriot claims is the fastest system on the planet.


At its core the system is operating on a SuperMicro X8DTH-6F-O motherboard with dual Xeon W5550s and a modest 48GB of ECC DDR3-1333 memory (PS34G13ER-E). Harnessing the power of 40 256GB Patriot TorqX SSDs strung together with five LSI Mega-Raid SAS PCI-E cards, the system is able to produce a sustained 155,000 IOPS/s.


A unique example of just how powerful this setup is – as explained by the Patriot reps – while a typical Blu-Ray video may take 2-3 hours to rip on a regular PC, the Patriot system can do this in 0.9 seconds.


Granted the display is purely for show, given that the entire system has a roughly $60,000 price tag.

Seeing as the highest end Mac Pro I could build online (just wanted to see the rediculous price) was $32,000. I'd just get half the SSD's and there ya go! lol

I'd just steal that one. Effectively making the cost of the PC for me: $0.

Excellent plan. I'll help. I'm sure explosives will be somehow necessary for such a heist. Grin

Grange or 370Z?

Z is much more nimble, but I imagine this particular machine would be quite large and would call for a more roomy vehicle.
