Titan is also the first outing for Nvidia's Tesla K20 GPGPU cards. These are mounted in 18,688 nodes, each comprising one 16-core Opteron 6200 series CPU paired with a Tesla K20 card, all wired together with Cray's Gemini interconnect to deliver peak computing power of roughly 20 PetaFLOPS.

If Seti could borrow that for a day, none of us would ever need to crunch again!

They would get no tasks available like the rest of us :(

Well, they wouldn't dare lend it to them on a Tuesday, they'd shut the thing down :-)))
