PowerEdge C410x PCIe Expansion Chassis

intel core

Adds up to 16.48 Teraflops of Computational Power to your Data Center


The PowerEdge™ C410x is a 3U, 16-slot external PCI Express (PCIe) expansion chassis that can support up to eight host connections to up to 16 graphics processing unit (GPU) cards. This enables massive parallel calculations separate from the server, greatly enhancing system performance and flexibility.

  • Enhance capabilities without adding servers.
  • Boost performance for faster results.
  • Save space, weight and cost while increasing density.

PowerEdge C410x - Extreme Number Cruncher

Extreme Number Cruncher

By populating the PowerEdge™ C410x with GPU PCIe cards, you can turn your servers into computing powerhouses that can satisfy your never-ending quest for customizable speed.

  • Up to 16.48 teraflops — x16 PCIe lanes allocated to a host interface connection means up to 16,480 gigaflops of parallel calculating power at your disposal.
  • First with the most — The PowerEdge C410x is the first PCIe enclosure of its kind with up to 16 slots in one chassis.
  • Multiple configurations — Mix and match PCIe devices to set the right ratio for maximum application performance.

The PowerEdge C410x PCIe expansion chassis is qualified for NVIDIA® Tesla™ compute modules, as well as for use with the PowerEdge C6100 server.

Easy to own and operate

The PowerEdge™ C410x PCIe expansion chassis is designed to concentrate tremendous computer power in a simple, scalable format that brings improved space-, weight- and cost-efficiency to your data center.
