If I didn't know any better, I'd say they are testing an Nvidia Tesla cluster. ;) *hint hint*

A collaborator has donated a large amount of compute time to this project; those clients were initially running under username Anonymous/team 1. To give proper credit for the donation, we have changed the username to PDC, team 1. During the period of this donation, there are at any time between 100 and 400 8-core clients running under this username (800-3200 cores total). Folding Forum • View topic - upcoming release: extra-large work units and extra large WU.

Right now, only Linux and OS/X systems can run these work units, and they require 8 or more cores. We prefer 8+ *physical* cores,
Man, you need some SERIOUS horsepower for that.
