PowerEdge C410x - Problem solver extraordinaire

Problem Solver Extraordinaire

If you're looking for oil, predicting the weather or just trying to develop a more lifelike computer game, the PowerEdge™ C410x specializes in value-added performance.

  • Tons of horsepower — 16 PCIe slots for massive general-purpose graphics processing unit (GPGPU) calculations
  • Lots of options — Supports up to eight host connections to up to 16 GPU cards for maximum flexibility
  • Super-fast results — 4x the PCIe slots per server than competing PCIe expansion chassis 
The PowerEdge™ C410x is specifically qualified with the Dell™ PowerEdge™ C6100 server but can connect to a range of servers. Furthermore, because the PowerEdge C410x de-couples the PCIe devices from servers, you can refresh them at different rates.
