The Cubix Linux2U 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 CentOS Linux 6.4 and Cubix GPU Manager to monitor the health and performance of both the GPUs and Xpander.
