"With the introduction of the Typhoon PSC, Tyan is delivering a new kind of product that brings supercomputing into the office," commented Jeff Smith, UK manager of Tyan Computer. "The PSC will enable scientists, researchers, and developers to process simulations and visualizations faster, finish research experiments quicker, and provide them with an alternative to higher-priced, expansive server rooms that require huge amounts of resources and extensive infrastructure to support. We believe that the Typhoon PSC will create a new personal supercomputing market."
The pictures alone say a lot for the machine itself, almost resembling a large shuttle case and even having handles on the top. Later models of the PSC will be able to support the Xeon 5100 series using FBD memory. The first models are available immediately, with the more powerful Xeon versions expected for release later this year.
