Cubix GPU-Xpander Rackmount 8 with 8 Double Wide Slots and 2x16 Connectors
The Cubix XPRM-X16-82-OSV GPU-Xpander Rack Mount 8 is an economical way to enhance the Input/Output (I/O) power of your rack mounted computers. GPU-Xpander Rack Mount 8 is a hardware-only solution that expands the I/O capability of a rack mount computer by adding slots, power and cooling. Each GPU-Xpander Rack Mount 8 can add 8 PCI Express (PCIe) slots to one to four of your rack mount computers. Add graphics processing units (GPUs) for graphical rendering or for mathematical high-performance computing (HPC) to a computer with GPU-Xpander Rack Mount 8.
Each PCIe slot in each of your rack mount computers can host GPUs within GPU-Xpander Rack Mount 8, which is available in a standard configuration of four pairs of slots and an optional configuration with two sets of 4 slots, shown in the image at the right. You need GPU-Xpander Rack Mount 8 if the hardware and software combination you intend to use runs in your rack mount computers but causes over-current or overheating problems. GPU-Xpander Rack Mount 8 is a hardware-only solution: no software required. It provides its own power supply and cooling; it requires no power from the host computer.
Simply plug the host adapter in your computer's PCIe slot, connect GPU-Xpander Rack Mount 8, install GPUs or other adapters, power up and install device drivers. GPU-Xpander Rack Mount 8 allows you to convert your rack mount tower or blade computer into a workstation-class machine with multiple adapters and controllers for thousands of dollars less per seat than buying a specialized, overpriced GPU-enabled computer. Support includes GPUs, audio and other multi-port IO adapters such as FireWire, USB 2.0 or Gbps Ethernet.
