About Cubix

The Cubix GPU-Xpander Rack Mount 16 Series II External PCIe Expansion Chassis (16 Single-Slot or 8 Dual-Slot) is a 5U, external PCI Express (PCIe) expansion chassis that can support 1-4 server connections with up to 8 discrete, dual-slot graphics or GPU cards per system or up to 16 single-slot graphics or other PCIe devices. This enables massive parallel calculations separate from the server, greatly enhancing system reliability, performance and flexibility.

Cubix Features

  • Install blazing fast hardware acceleration within minutes
  • Sixteen PCIe Gen2 x16 expansion slots (x16 electrical) expansion slots in each Xpander Rackmount 16 system
  • Four separate 4-slot PCIe MIBs (Main Interface Boards), four 2m data cables + PCIe x16 HICs per unit
  • Support up to eight dual-slot graphics cards such as NVIDIA Quadro 5000 / 6000 / K5000 / K6000 / GTX 780 / GTX TITAN Black
  • Up to eight dual-slot GPU cards such as NVIDIA Tesla C2075 / K20 / K40, co-processor cards such as Intel Phi
  • Four independent, 750W power supplies to meet any expansion requirement
  • Multiple exhaust fans
  • Simple, quick installation with minimal impact per rack cabinet; just install a host adapter and a graphics driver
  • Each x16 cable and connector provide a 250 mating cycle duty cycle
  • Enhance server I/O infrastructure capabilities without adding servers
  • Hardware-acceleration using NVIDIA graphics and GPU cards for faster VDI and thin-client multimedia performance
  • Save space, weight and cost while increasing I/O card density
  • Hardware acceleration without purchasing a customized PC workstation or a new Mac Pro (2008+)
  • Works with almost any standard PC and Apple Mac Pro featuring PCIe Gen2 / Gen3 x8 or x16 open slot(s)
  • Add multiple graphics or GPU cards to any computer regardless of power supply limitations
  • Add multiple graphics or GPU cards without having to specify, purchase, install and configure new computers
  • No power or cooling needed from the host computer; Xpander Rackmount 16 provides its own power and cooling
  • Connect up to four host PC or Apple Mac Pro hosts units to one Xpander Rackmount 16
  • Add eight dual-slot GPUs, or 16 single-slot cards, for supporting up to four rackmount computers which have very limited slot expansion capabilities and limited power supply capacities
  • Support up to four separate host PCs or Apple Mac Pro workstations with one Xpander Rackmount 16
  • Add powerful GPUs like NVIDIA Quadro K4000 / K5000 / K6000, Tesla C2070 / K10 / K20, or GeForce GTX 780 / TITAN graphics cards
