AMD shows off dual-R600 "teraflop-in-a-box" system


NVIDIA isn't the only one putting its massive amounts of GPU horsepower behind more mundane -- and potentially more lucrative -- tasks than pretty 3D gaming graphics. AMD just showcased its Accelerated Computing platform, which ties an AMD Opteron dual-core chip to a pair of AMD R600 Stream Processors for more than a teraflop of combined performance. AMD's not only proud of the basic muscle on display, but the achievements of its Accelerated Computing platform getting all that beef to work together. But really, all we want to know is if it can run Doom.
