Just thought that I would link to this rather staggering feat involving our Opteron siblings and the pre-production animation used in the new Star Wars movie.

QUOTE According to Mr. Gregoire, George Lucas now has the same power in pre-viz as he has in an actual director's chair. Many elements of a shot can be changed in real-time. JAK Films' 140-Opteron render farm and 60 Opteron-equipped workstations provide the processing power to make this happen.

..The power of the AMD processor is nicely summed up by Mr. Gregoire, "My artists can go home on time and much happier now. Without the Opterons, it would have been much more painful."
