The Samsung-led Alpha Processor Inc (API) consortium will tomorrow introduce a small footprint chassis for its UP 2000 mobo aimed at Linux clusters and render farms. (Is a render farm where mad cows are processed? Ed.) Each PowerRAC chassis will hold 14 API dual Alpha UP2000 mobos, giving a maximum capacity of 28GB of synchronous memory, 28 independent PCI buses and a claimed 42 Gflops of performance. API wll claim the chassis has been tested with "scores" of Linux apps, server products and development tools. The UP 2000 mobo will take two Alpha 21264 chips clocking at either 666MHz or 750MHz. The chassis will have a 600 watt power supply, is built of steel, and has three internal storage bays. Without stuffing it with boards and the like, the chassis will cost $1,100 and will start shipping in December. ®
