Cubix SYNW812RME7B-21 Overview

The Cubix Win2U Rackmount Elite consists of the HostEngine 2U Computer which is connected to the Xpander Rackmount Elite 4U PCIe Enclosure.

The Xpander Rackmount Elite is designed for the broadcast industry digital cinema production environments, and visualization projects which require plenty of additional power and PCIe slots, while maintaining a small physical footprint and quiet operation. Using only one PCIe x16 slot in the host PC or Mac Pro, Xpander Rackmount Elite provides you with six additional full-length, full-height PCIe slots for use with multiple NVIDIA graphics cards, SDI capture cards from Blackmagic Design, AJA, Bluefish444, NVIDIA, and others. You can add multiple RED Rocket cards, high-performance NVIDIA Quadro graphics by PNY, as well as fiber optic HBAs, RAID controllers, PCIe-based memory cache cards. It comes equipped with one AMD FirePro W2100 and two NVIDIA GTX 980 graphics cards.

The HostEngine 2U comes with 16GB of RAM and one 500GB SATA3 SSD, but supports up to 1TB of RAM and a 2TB SATA3 SSD. It has four PCIe x16 (gen 3) expansion slots for low-profile cards such as the Cubix HIC that connects to Xpander. The system is loaded with Windows 8.1 Pro and Cubix GPU Manager to monitor the health and performance of both the GPUs and Xpander.

You can install four dual slot GPUs (Graphical Processing Units) for hardware acceleration purposes as well as other types of third party I/O controllers
Four PCIe Gen 3 x16 expansion slots (supporting both dual slot and single slot cards) and two 8-channel slots (supports single slot cards) per MIB (Main Interface Board), total of six slots per system
One MIBs per 4RU, 19" rack mount system (one PCIe backplane, one 16-channel data cable, and one 16-channel HIC)
An independent 1500W power supply and cooling fan to meet expansion requirements
Simple, quick installation with minimal impact per rackmount computer. Install a HIC (Host Interface Card) and drivers for installation of devices in GPU-Xpander
Each x16 cable and connector provides a 250 mating duty cycle (purchase additional x16 HICs for sharing with multiple host computers)
Hardware-acceleration using NVIDIA graphics and GPU cards for application acceleration
Enhances server I/O infrastructure capabilities without adding servers


Adds four dual slot GPUs for supporting rackmount computers, which have limited slot expansion capabilities and limited power supply capacities
Supports one host PC or Apple Mac Pro workstation with one Xpander Rackmount Elite
