“Build-Your-Own-Supercomputer” Formula
Build your own supercomputer from scratch using German engineering and quality
This “build-your-own-supercomputer” formula makes itself evident in comparison to IBM’s Watson supercomputer, the old but respected staple of supercomputers. Companies can follow this calculation to see if it’s worth it for them to stop renting an existing supercomputer and build their own from scratch using German engineering and quality. Consider the following side-by-side feature review (see detailed pricing for individual A.I. grade computer workstations HERE - prices as of Fall 2019 ):
Watson is not a new supercomputer; it hasn't even made the list of the 500 most powerful supercomputers. Its Linpack performance stands at 80 TeraFLOPs, which is about half as fast as the cut-off line for the "Top 500 Supercomputers" list. Watson employs a cluster of 90 “IBM Power 750” servers connected together, each of which uses: 
Built with Impact IMP-3488-H1-8176-1T-2T-G4-8000. Y ou don’t need 90 units of servers/computer workstations connected together. With each IMP-3488-H1-8176-1T-2T-G4-8000 you get:
Note*: This price/number of pieces is an estimate. Additional price breaks may be available for quantities of more than five workstations. If you desire the same overall main processor speed for the main comparison criteria as IBM Watson, only 22 pcs of IMP-3488-H1-8176-1T-2T-G4-8000 are necessary (at $56K each) = $1,232,000, and this supercomputer will offer much greater performance compared to IBM's Watson: 1.4 times more RAM and many more TeraFLOPs.
One can calculate the total power consumption of IBM Watson's 90 servers operating at the same time. Impact’s hardware-based supercomputers offer significant power consumption savings. Less servers / computer workstations mean less power consumption, resulting in even more money savings. As illustrated above, Impact was able to cut the number of connected computers by at least six. Plus, IMP-3488-H1-8176-1T-2T-G4-8000's do not require additional excessive energy for cooling, because they simply don’t produce much heat – see article below about another supercomputer that belongs to the Swiss National Supercomputing Center and review info about Impact’s single-rail power construction and 22 built-in temperature sensors in each workstation.

As the article states about the Swiss National Supercomputing Center, "Because of this extraordinarily large amount of data, the researchers needed a supercomputer to put their artificial intelligence into action. They ultimately ran their A.I. on a computer at the Swiss National Supercomputing Center in Lugano, a city in southern Switzerland which borders Italy. The supercomputers at CSCS are available to all Swiss universities and research institutions. Its machines are so powerful that, in order to stop them overheating, water from the nearby Lake Lugano is pumped in for cooling at a rate of 460 liters per second."
