Cubix GPU-Xpander Desktop 2- 4 Single Wide Slots & x16 Connector - XPDT-X16-24-OSV
Need to add killer 3D graphics or computing cores for high-performance computing (HPC) projects to your operators' desktop computers? Don't have enough expansion slots in your current desktop computers to add fast, 3D graphics or NVIDIA's Compute Unified Device Architecture- (CUDA) capable, number-crunching GPUs? Don't have sufficient cooling capacity or a hefty enough power supply to add high-end graphics or HPC capability to your organization's computers? Many host computers lack the 'watts and slots' to allow expansion. Cubix GPU-Xpander Pro 2 is just the ticket.
Add two NVIDIA® Quadro® FX 1800 / 3800 / 4800 / 5800, Quadro 4000 / 5000 / 6000 graphics controllers, two NVIDIA Tesla® C1060 / C2050 / C2070 computing processors or two NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 465 / 470 / 480 Fermi™ controllers to any computer that has an available PCI Express (PCIe) x8 or x16 expansion slot by installing the host adapter in the computer's x8 or x16 slot, connecting it to the GPU-Xpander Pro 2, installing graphics drivers and voila! You have just added two powerful graphics controllers or CUDA-capable HPC controllers without buying a new computer.
Save Time and Money
Just because you need to add or upgrade to high-end, 3D graphics or math-intensive, HPC processors in operators' desktop computers doesn't mean you have to go to all the weeks of effort and meetings to obtain approval and all the considerable expense, not to mention all the work of installing and configuring new computers. Rather than starting from scratch, keep your substantial investment in your current computer hardware and simply add or upgrade to the most powerful graphics controllers or HPC processor cards on the market -- at considerably less than the cost of replacing computer hardware.
Install the host adapter in each computer, connect it to Cubix GPU-Xpander Pro, install graphics drivers and within minutes, your operators are back to work. The operators have the same operating system configuration, the same desktop, the familiar applications and multi-monitor screens but now they also have the fastest graphics controllers or HPC- and CUDA-capable cores available. Screaming-fast, 3D graphics or HPC capability at a reasonable price and with only minutes of effort per operator desktop -- what an investment!
Minimal Impact on Operators' Desktop Space and Configuration
Your operators are busy, and they have neither the time nor the inclination to learn how to use efficiently a new computer, a new operating system, a new desktop screen configuration, or for that matter, a new use of desktop space. They want to keep working -- without interruption or changes to their routines.
You need GPU-Xpander Pro 2 if the hardware and software combination you intend to use runs in your computer but causes over-current or overheating problems. GPU-Xpander Pro 2 is a hardware-only solution: no software required. GPU-Xpander Pro 2 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 Pro 2, power up and install device drivers.
Boost Graphics or HPC Performance
Give your operators the graphical or HPC power they demand with Cubix GPU-Xpander Pro 2. When your operators return for their next shift, they'll find their desktop space unchanged, their desktop screen configuration the same as usual, but what a difference in performance! With two powerful, state-of-the-art 3D graphics or HPC controllers in their system, their applications and renderings will leave their expectations in the dust with fast, eye-popping performance. For example, you can upgrade to or add two NVIDIA® Quadro® FX 4800 / 5800 graphics controllers or two NVIDIA® Tesla® C1060 / C2050 / C2070 computing processors for each operator, giving them the performance they demand without the usual interruption that a new system causes.
Remember the importance of the CUDA-enabled GPU and its memory in 3D rendering and HPC performance. For 3D rendering, Cubix recommends at least 1GBye of GPU memory and preferrably 2GBytes to 4GBytes, depending upon the size and complexity of the scene to be rendered interactively or of the calculations required. Cubix GPU-Xpander Pro 2 offers a quick, simple and cost-competitive method for adding GPU power and memory to your computer.

Don't let your computer's lack of 'watts and slots' hold you back. Get your graphics or HPC processing on with GPU-Xpander Pro 2 for each operator's desktop. It will give your operators the graphics or HPC, CUDA-capable performance they demand at a reasonable cost with little or no interruption to routine or workflow.
