128Gbps Bandwidth – PCIe Gen3 x16
The Netstor NA255A GPU enclosure implements the latest PCIe 3.0 technology and PCIe Gen3 16-lane host interface with throughput 8Gbps per lane, offering blazing-fast data transfer rates up to 128Gbps between host and expansion enclosure, dedicated for GPU-accelerated applications.
Up to 4 Dual-Width GPU Cards
The GPU enclosure is designed to have 4 PCIe x16 slots (x8 electrical)1 on NA255A backplane supporting up to 4 double-width PCIe Gen3 GPU cards, or single-slot PCIe cards. In addition, the enclosure can accommodate all combinations of PCIe 3.0 ×1, ×4, ×8 and ×16 GPU/PCIe cards for every application with backward compatibility for Gen2 cards to work with host, server or workstation in areas such as HPC, telecom, and data centers.
1 Netstor is dedicated to providing high C/P value GPU enclosure solution. According to graphics experts’ test, there will be only 1% GPU performance difference when GPU card is installed in between PCIe x8 and x16 electrical. Please refer to AnandTech and TechPowerUp.
Great Sufficient Powering
Dedicated 1200W PSU for
Newest high-end or enthusiast GPU cards generally require high power wattage for work; considering the hi-power requirement aspect, Netstor has considerately planned a dedicated, high-efficient 1200W power supply unit in the GPU enclosure to allow up to 4 high-performing graphics cards to process with top reliability and stability.
Supplementary 6+2 pin
PCI-E Power Cables
Netstor NA255A GPU enclosure has been thoughtfully designed to provide extra PCI-E power cables to meet each GPU card’s supplementary power requirement. Furthermore, any combinations of 6-pin and 8-pin PCI-E power connectors on every graphics card are supported by NA255A.
Traditional host computer or workstation only has CPU and regular GPU to work with professional applications. However, these conventional data processors cannot even provide a higher processing to meet modern working demands. Hence, by adding the Netstor NA255A GPU enclosure with up to four high-end GPU cards to your host/workstation can let your conventional host computer turn into a supercomputing or high-performance computing workstation.
Netstor NA255A offers a complete solution for working with Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, the world’s most advanced color grading tools. The NA255A GPU enclosure does also provide a high-performance processing to the host system for the colorist team and studios in the video editing and post-production industry. All in all, NA255A is the ideal solution for real-time, 4K/Ultra HD color correction in one package.
Increasing number of data scientists are using multiple high-end graphics cards in Netstor GPU enclosure for large data analytics to make better and real-time business decisions. Typical application case in big data analytics includes machine learning, deep learning, search, and sorting.
Medical imaging takes the advantage of multi-GPU computing to get acceleration. Common use case in medical imaging covers accelerating Advanced MRI Reconstruction and Computed Tomography (CT) Reconstruction. The use of multiple high-end graphics card with Netstor GPU enclosure in this field is matured and there have been many such applications in the medical area.
Professionals can use specialized tools such as MATLAB, Mathematica, and LabView…etc. through the utilization of multi graphics cards in Netstor GPU enclosure for accelerating the numerical analytics computing. Reliable statistics show computing capability of multi-GPU is more than ten times faster than CPU alone.
Extra Graphics Card Holders
In view of some high-performance GPU card with card length up to 30 cm or so, due to card’s heavier weight and longer length, a special graphics card holder has been deliberately designed close to each PCIe slot for holding the large, heavy GPU card thoroughly and reliably within the NA255A enclosure.
Convenient Adjustable Fan Speeds
NA255A is equipped with two front large 12×12 cm cooling fan modules with each fan in support of 75 CFM, providing best airflow ventilation to enclosure for most excellent heat dissipation ever, and ensuring graphics cards within chassis can run long term without any high temp concern. Moreover, the fan speed of each cooling fan can be adjusted manually according to GPUs application situation within NA255A GPU chassis.
Perfect Graphics Cards Compatibility
The Nvidia and AMD GPU cards that are compatible and work greatly with Netstor NA255A enclosure include Nvidia GeForce 10 / 900 series, Quadro P6000 / M6000 series and AMD Radeon RX, R9 series, FirePro W9100 / 9000 series.
