Re^3: Regarding building of a cluster...

Maciej Czarnacki


I gave you inappropriate link, here is correct
There is automatic script for gamess installation on raspberry pi.
I am very curious raspberry pi molecular modeling cluster. If you will build it please give me an information about that.
Best regards,

>3) It should be perhaps easy to cool this cluster owing to its small size. Plus it won't heat up much at all.  :-) thnx to its 700MHz processor.
>4) I haven't checked it.. But there must be some overclocking option.
>5) One very important point we have overlooked is its GPU performance. It does support HD video and I feel I read its speed is in gigapixel/sec. So we could use its gpu capability too.
