 The CAVE is driven by a cluster of 6 high-end graphics workstations running Linux and the custom virtual reality operating system Vrui. A //head node// with an Intel Core i7-870 CPU at 2.9GHz, 8GB of main memory, and 12TB of RAID disk storage controls the system, while the images for the projection are generated by four //render nodes//, each with an Intel Core i7-920 CPU at 2.67GHz, 6GB of main memory, and an Nvidia Quadro FX 5800G 3D graphics card. An additional //audio node// generates spatial sound using four speakers mounted at the corners of the CAVE enclosure. The cluster nodes are connected using two parallel Gigabit Ethernet networks, and the entire system is connected to campus high-performance computing systems. The CAVE is driven by a cluster of 6 high-end graphics workstations running Linux and the custom virtual reality operating system Vrui.

 +In addition to the main CAVE, KeckCAVES also maintains several smaller low-cost virtual reality environments used as testbeds for deployment of virtual reality hardware to a larger user population. Those include several systems based on 3D TVs, as well as several current-generation commodity VR head-mounted displays.
