Tom’s IT Pro : Gigabyte and CARRI Systems Launches Four-Blade GPU Compute Server
Gigabyte launched the G210-H4G last week, a 2U rackmount server playing host to four blades. This server is the result of a partnership with Carri Systems, a French company that specializes in high performance computing solutions.
The four blades are based on Gigabyte’s GA-6LISL motherboard, and can be configured with an AMD Fire Pro card, a Nvidia GRID card, or a Nvidia Tesla card, according to the specifications. Each blade also includes four hot-swappable bays for 2.5 inch drives (HDD or SSD), and a PCIe Gen3 x16 slot for a 300W computing card measuring up to 267mm in length.
Each blade also supports Intel Xeon E3-1200 V3 processors. These chips bring a full plate of new technology including dual gigabit LAN, integrated graphics supporting OpenGL 3.2+ and DirectX 11.1, AVX 2.0 and TSX instructions. These blades have also been designed to provide the computing card with the maximum amount of airflow to and around the card, keeping the hardware nice and cool.
Gigabyte’s G210-H4G GPU Computing Server“In the context of an unfolding GPU virtualization market and the vast amount of new possibilities that it opens, the G210-H4G is an elegant solution designed with simplicity and flexibility in mind to let organizations, big and small, enjoy the benefits of this fast-growing computing trend,” the press release said.
