A.R. Rahman, one of the most celebrated musicians of the country, has ever been in news for his musical skills but never for his extravagant lifestyle or accessories. But, that certainly does not mean that the music wizard does not splurge. Occasionally, the maestro buys something that outstrips acquisitions of all other celebrities in the industry.

Recently, the whiz has bought a customized supercomputer that is far better than all others in the market. Since Rahman needed a really high-end machine that could perform well with his really exclusive audio processing software that requires a super fast processor, Shatul and Co. made him something that outdoes all others.


The computer is capable of running at a breathtaking speed of 4.3 GHz and has got a RAM of a whopping 120 GB. It has 6 SSDs of 1 TB each which makes its total memory 6 TBs. Hold on! There is additional connectivity for more data. The Intel Core i7 5960 chip set is overclocked to 4.3 GHz. To cool down all the heating, the supercomputer has a customized water-cooling capacity, while the custom noise control restrains the noises at 6,000 RPM to 35 decibels.

The extraordinary machine has Thunderbolt setup with 6 ports for connectivity. Each of these Thunderbolts can support two devices simultaneously, implying that this giant can be connected to up to 12 devices at the same time.


By now you must be boggled by the phenomenal specs of this monster and wondering about its cost! Well! The basic system costs a whopping Rs. 5 lakh, adding the cost of cooling system and noise control, the complete setup can be bought for around Rs.7 lakh!


A.R. Rahman has got this computer custom-made by Shatul and Sharan who specialize in overclocking computers as per the client’s requirements. The duo is quite popular among the musicians and gamers of India for making best-in-class custom-made computers. Shatul Durlabhji, one of the two techies, was even in the news for his association with Asus for the creation of the country’s fastest gaming computer.
