Link and price please. We are looking to upgrade our render farm (or maybe just my personal box!!!!)

Edit: Found it, yikes, but for that price I guess you get what you pay for! dang, that's 4 times faster than my HP640, 5 times faster than the VM's running my render farm. Its going on the wishlist!

Nice one.
Would like to hear about the cost as well :)

About $10k with those processors. There were some others with 48 total cores that seemed reasonable, but geebuz, that's a speedy machine!

Yes, I belive $10k is about what IT said the cost was. I was really thrilled when I found out we got it  ;D

The machine I have at my desk is 8 cores, so I had a huge grin on my face the first time I got to render with this beast!

Ha, slightly above my current budget, but what a nifty thing!
You should buy your IT department some cake!

Thanks for sharing.
