1620W power supply. 4x375W is already 1500W. Not much room for HDDs, two CPUs, RAM, board, network...not to mention cooling 1500W as opposed to 900W-950W (225/235x4).

"Each server contains two graphics cards AMD FirePro Model S10000 with four graphics processors to accelerate."

S10000 = 2x GPU, or 187W per GPU.

Looking at Todi and SANAM's perf/w..

Todi linkpack = 273.7 for 122 kW
SANAM = 421.2 for 179 kW

So i guess going with Opterons is a bad idea when Xeons are so much more perf/w.

I was referring to the Asus OEM server from Sontin's link. Sorry. 4 cards with 375W TDP each would not fit in there.
