This week Dell unveiled the PowerEdge C4130. As an incredibly GPU dense and flexible HPC-focused rack server, the PowerEdge C4130 is the only Intel Xeon E5-2600v3 1U server to offer up to four GPUs/accelerators. It has up to 33 percent better GPU/accelerator density than its closest competitors and 400 percent more PCIe GPU/accelerators per processor per rack U than a comparable HP system. The PowerEdge C4130 can achieve over 7.2 Teraflops on a single 1U server and has a performance/watt ratio of up to 4.17 Gigaflops per watt. This allows customers to further optimize application performance and productivity while unshackling the constraints of traditional datacenter space and energy use.
Dell is dedicated to enhancing all aspects of high performance computing and addressing our customers’ needs through premier technology, services, expert guidance and collaboration,” said Jimmy Pike, vice president, senior fellow and chief Architect, Dell. “The advancements and innovations in the new HPC solutions introduced today will help power the revolutionary discoveries being made by the top research organizations and accelerate product and service development for leading IT companies.”
