Besides joke builds like that, what would you really use that hardware for?
>>
i really want this for me and my frie- wait..

Could you do that with a dual gpu card?

It would reduce the amount of physical cards in the system.
>>
>>52216724
Due to power requirements and the need for them to be both powerful and power efficient and single slot , is probably why he went with nanos

You need one dedicated gpu for each of these instances.
You can not run 2 gamingpc's out of 1 card.
Each GPU is dedicated from their bus, and you can not split the bus between two instances.

That's not very cost effective at all.

It's for promotion isn't it

>>52217573
Just saying, if it actually worked out cheaper than multiple independent builds it would've been interesting.

I wonder if that $30k figure counted the monitors.
>>
>>52216264
>asked for 7 blocks
>couldn't have asked for one more pump

you can obviously see the single pump struggling in the video
>>
>>52216264
thats the same shit pretty much every linux user in the last 5 years did to play games.
get a second gpu, run a vm with pcie passthrough in qemu/kvm, play in vm..
>>
>>52217659
sounds more difficult and more expensive than dual booting.
>>
>>52217736
it's really easy, and you don't need to dual boot, you just fire up the vm to play games.
dual booting is just awful, having to close everything, etc
you just need a second gpu, and thats it.
>>
>>52217652
wut? he said that they used two pumps.
>>
lmao why would he use amd instead of nvida
>>
>>52216724
>>52217226
What they should have done is gotten two power supplies, since they aren't in crossfire anyway and wire it like a buttcoin rig.

7 r9 295x, which is like a PC with 14 290x's

virtual machines, servers, content creation, random obscure use cases for certain kinds of programmers.

It includes the monitors which were like $1300 each or something

Name an Nvidia GPU that's as small and power efficient as a Nano.

>all those titan x
It doesn't make any sense, the original Titan could have been used as a compute card, then nvidia killed all the double fp perf in the Titan X
>>
>>52217629

Then have a look at the one where he has just two gaming VMs running off one system, that one might be cost effective for an end-user, I don't know.
>>
>>52217652

He literally says that he added a second pump

>>52218289

Well that's why he's using watercooling isn't it, Einstein
>>
>>52216264
That really is pretty damn cool, though of course impractical and real-world useless.
>>
>>52216264
If you had 7 dual gpu cards with a single slot water cooler with multiple power supplies could you do 14 graphics cards for 14 users?

Can you do this with just one by disabling the GPU on the host as part of the VM boot-up process? And switch it back afterwards.

I don't see the problem.

>>52218628
No shit mate. They were the sponsor and it was made specifically to demo at their booth.

He states it outright.
>>
>>52218583
technically you could run the host without a gpu and use the gpu just for the VM, but i've never tried that.
>>
>>52216264
>7 gamers, 1 CPU
>has 2 cpus
>>
>>52218628
Outright stating who gave you shit for free and who is sponsoring you isn't shilling. Shilling is expressly hiding the fact that you're hired to advertise a certain product, it's hidden by definition.
>>
>>52218583
No, I don't think you can normally hot-plug GPUs.
>>
>>52218443
>not wanting a whole-house arcade machine
>easy LAN play of virtually any game including old DOS stuff
>save electricity (how many watthours would 7 individual machines pull?)

It's an incredibly economical idea. Imagine if you could buy one computer for your house and serve the computing needs of your entire family?

>>52218628
Ain't that drive known to use shit tier flash?
>>
>>52219446
At $30k it's absolutely not economical in any way. You would definitely pay less if you had 7 different machines (you could probably spend ~1k/machine and get similar performance) and as long as you only turned them on when needed you may also end up using less power since that thing idles at 250W.

You forgot 2nd monitor. You aren't going to play by rdp/vnc, right?
>>
>>52219838
just use the 2.nd input on your monitor
and actually, yes, you can play via vnc
>>
>>52219880
> just use the 2.nd input on your monitor
Yeah, i just realised that. And also realised that my fucking korean shit monitor has only 1 input.

> and actually, yes, you can play via vnc
It's too slow.
>>
>>52219742
Geez buzzkill I got a chuckle out of it. Lighten up. Life is short when you're halfway done.
>>
>>52217873
Dual boring is awful because you have to close everything. Jesus dude if you're spending serious cash to play games then at least run native and get decent frame rates. If you need a Linux server then just remote into it.
>>
>>52216264
all this things...
