The curiosity of the day comes from China.The modder known Deaguen Lee has created a totally revolutionary concept, mod home in a consistent complete system SFF (Small Form Factor) with a processor Intel Xeon two Radeon R9 Nano 18 cores and capable of providing 10 TFlops occupying a minimum performance space. Do you want to see it? Well read.
If you have long, advanced knowledge of hardware and DIY, and a lot of money, you can also make a mod like the one we are going to teach. No, the reality is that very few people have the ability and the means to make a system that just takes up space, which provides 10 TFlops performance and top is nice and well chilled.
Lee Deaguen project began with an initiative by AMD through Twitter called #Makeitnano , and the result could not have been more impressive. The initiative was to create a SFF system with a Radeon R9 Nano, although throws in a couple of days officially and was presented the 1st of this month, so we know perfectly their specifications and appearance so that there remains nothing to know.
For this mod home, it used a plate DGLee based mini ITX ASRock LGA EPC612D4I 2011-3 with an Intel Xeon processor E5 E3 2699 18 cores and 36 processing threads running at 2.3 GHz and 3.6 GHz Turbo, with 45 MB L3 cache and a TDP of 145W. 1324 brings himself and GFLOPS performance.
This impressive processor have been added two modules DDR4 RAM Crucial 8GB PC4-17000 (ie, has 16 GB of RAM DDR4 system), four SSDs Toshiba 256GB Q300 Pro running in RAID 0 + 1 and course two AMD Radeon R9 Nano running in CrossFireX. Yes, because the motherboard only has one PCI-Express 3.0 socket, DGLee used a PCI-Express splitter, which has also allowed it to locate a graphic horizontally. Between the two, added 8.19 TFlops performance (they are obviously limited by the splitter), but coupled with the added processor 10 mod TFlops in this home that I have mentioned at the beginning. To complete the setup has been used a power supply Silverstone SX600-G.
The complete list of components is as follows:
Intel Xeon E5-2699 V3 (18C 36T)
ASRock Rack EPC612D4I (C612 chipset / ITX form factor)
Micron Crucial PC4-17000 8GB DDR4 x 2
AMD Radeon R9 Nano 4GB
Toshiba 256GB x 4 Q300 Pro RAID 0 + 1
SilverStone SFX SX600-G Series (600W SFX form factor)
As for the box that has been used in this mod, it is a work of engineering that created the user himself with his hands. Its dimensions are 166 x 244 x 188 mm with a volume of 7.65 liters inside. He has made it even beautiful in design, with a big hole for the fan Thermalright you installed on the front. Wonderful, from our point of view.
