NAB Lightbeam Systems’ new E5 series of workstations, render nodes and GPU
nodes are based on the Intel Xeon processor E5 2600 series, NVIDIA
Quadro professional graphics and NVIDIA Tesla GPUs.
|The Lightbeam E5-16200 and Lightbeam E5-820 workstations have up to 16 physical CPU cores and 32 logical CPU cores. The E5-6450R and E5-4850R quad render nodes include up to 64 CPU cores in a 2U form factor, and the E5-1620GPU and E5-1220GPU quad GPU render nodes provide up to 2048 NVIDIA CUDA GPU cores with up to 16 CPU processor cores.|
|The Lightbeam E5-16200 and E5-820 workstations provide Intel Xeon processor E5 2600 series Romley CPUs offering up to 768 GB of RAM and PCI Express 3.0 architecture, up to dual eight-core Intel Xeon processor E5 2600 series CPUs with up to 32 logical cores, and NVIDIA Quadro 6000 professional graphics with the Scalable Geometry Engine. They support for up to four double-wide graphics cards or GPUs.
The Lightbeam Systems E5-6450R and E5-4850R 2U quad render nodes have four independent nodes with up to 16 physical cores and 32 logical cores, and up to 256 GB RAM per node using the Intel Xeon processor E5 2500 series. They hold up to 64 physical cores, 128 logical cores, and up to 1024 GB of total memory in a 2U form factor with four independent hot-swap nodes and redundant power supplies. The nodes include 1620W redundant platinum level hot-swap power supplies for a 3240 watts total, and a built-in server management tool with dedicated LAN port.
The Lightbeam Systems E5-16200GPU and E5-12200GPU quad GPU systems, developed for dedicated GPU processing include four complete NVIDIA Tesla GPUs in a single node, up to dual eight-core Intel Xeon processor E5 2600 series CPUs with up to 32 logical cores, up to 2048 available CUDA cores and up to 2660 gigaflops of double-precision GPU performance. They have 1800W redundant Platinum Level power supplies for a 3600W total, and also include a built-in server management tool with dedicated LAN port. www.lightbeamsystems.com
