    The part about this is the software framework, which will make creating cluster machines like this much simpler in the future. Of course, in a few years that 6 hours will be 30 minutes, and so on. GPUs are getting more powerful and more efficient every year. You could already take that framework and get it working with 25 much more powerful GPUs, the ones he uses aren't all latest generation.
