We currently have one system currently in production with GPUs and
another arriving in the next couple weeks. The system currently in
production is an SGI Altix UV1000, which has 4 Nvidia S2050 units (i.e.
16 GPUs total) attached to it; that system operates as a single system
image, and is perhaps a little unusual in that the GPUs are intended
primarily for remote vidualization service rather than GPGPU computing.
The system on the way is a 120-node cluster of some breed with 3
Fermi-generation GPUs per node, but I don't recall the specifics of
either the nodes or the GPUs.
