Our visualization system is back online after an upgrade and move to the new data center.
- It has 16 2.2Ghz AMD cores
- 128 GB of RAM
- a GeForce 8800 GTX GPU for 3D rendering and GPU code development.
It runs VirtualGL software and VNC to allow for VNC connections to render graphics using the servers GPU rather than sending OpenGL calls across the network to be rendered on the VNC client machine. This provides extremely fast 3D visualization with only minimal hardware requirements for the VNC client.
More packages will be installed soon. The address is: viz.acg.umaine.edu and current users of Marconi can access this system with their same credentials.
