HX425Ca

The HX425Ca offers the next generation of AMD® Opteron Dual/Quad/16 Core Technology.

It delivers exceptional performance by taking advantage of the latest AMD ‘Interlagos’ native eight and sixteen–core processors. This technology improves system efficiency and boosts application performance for computers running multiple applications at the same time or compute–intensive multi–threaded applications.
The Viglen HX425Ca systems provide the ideal performance boost for the HPC environments of today and tomorrow.

Key Features

High Performance
Fitted with the latest generation of two eight/sixteen–core AMD® Opteron™ 2000 Series (Socket G34). Support, HyperTransport HT3 Link

Ultra Thin Chassis — Large Memory Capacity
With up to 24 processor cores and up to 256GB of RAM occupying only 1U of rack space, the HX425Ca allows you to build a very powerful cluster using very little space

Cost Effective
The power draw is significantly less when compared 24 processing cores in as single chassis to 8 single core machines, which in turn reduces cooling costs and an overall lower total cost of ownership
