Re: 100 RPi supercomputer w/ 20 GPU boards, appreciate for h

I am also getting to a stage where I know a "reasonable amount of knowledge" to embark on this journey. I my parents are both software and electrical engineers... Using their help atleast, I can make this happen... I am going to use PXE boot on all of the ITX nodes once they do they would all go thr...

Re: 100 RPi supercomputer w/ 20 GPU boards, appreciate for h

ITXs would have a PCi E Gbit card added into select ITX nodes. These ports would be directly wired to the GigE Hub/Switch. The Gig E Hubs/Switches would have direct connections to parallela boards and Nvidia TK1s.. Thanks for Input!! I am going to edit it based off your inputs!! P.S. It's getting ha...

I have a question..

Should I buy chasis for each node?
What do you think?

Re: 100 RPi supercomputer w/ 20 GPU boards, appreciate for h

The problem with the parallela is that it too could only be used as a infomation distributer...

It only has a ARMv7 and a proprietary epiphany processor.
But no GPU info.

However this could be used to be making branches of nodes and subnodes...

Info flowchart coming soon...

The Parallella is almost impossible to get ahold of. Plus they overheat in their stock config. Why not wait until nvidia releases GPUs for the Jetson k1? With a discrete GPU it would do well performance wise. Also if your interests are purely educational then there is nothing wrong with using a lar...

Not exactly the CPU....

What do you guys think of this GPU

motherboard with i5?
Kylin Linux???
and I should be fine?

Umm @Richard-TX
What exactly did you benchmark it for?
What did it test?
The CPU or the GPU?
What was it trying to do?
