THE single most powerful machine in the lab. Probably even outpaces the Cluster simply because GPU and the Cluster is broken half the time. Duke and ASM are little babies compared to this bad boy.
It's a desktop (a documentation writer's worst nightmare)

Snowy was a purchase order as part of Arya Kumar's 2019 Senior Research project. He went through a bunch of different names as the case kept getting delayed in the mail, eventually arriving 3 months late.
Snowy is currently sitting in the HPC rack on top of the HPC nodes. Its ethernet cable comes from the Sun Rack and power is a mess.
Snowy was supposed to have 4x NVIDIA RTX 2080, but there wasn't enough room in the case; the fans on the bottom take up too much space.
