The Netstor NA250A-PRO 4-Slot PCIe 3.0 Expansion Box from Dynapower USA comes with simple plug-and-play capabilities to deliver four PCIe 3.0 slots for your system. It includes a PCIe 3.0 x8 host card and a data cable to create a 64 Gbps connection between the workstation and NA250A-PRO expansion box. Once the host card is installed inside the computer and connected, the NA250A-PRO is automatically configured by the BIOS of the workstation or server, making all the PCIe slots accessible to the system. The PCIe 3.0 slots in the expansion box are compatible with x1, x4, x8, and x16 half-length or full-length PCIe cards.
The NA250A-PRO expansion box renders flexibility to expand the I/O capabilities of a workstation or server. It features four PCIe 3.0 x8 (x16 connector) slots and comes with eight L-shape metal brackets and four slots on the back panel to support up to four double-width expansion cards. This combination of features lets you add GPU cards to a system with limited PCIe card support. In addition, the workstation or servers' configuration is maintained with increased capacity and scalability for PCIe I/O capabilities.
The NA250A-PRO is suitable for video-editing professionals and developers for improving the performance of intensive GPU functions. It provides a low-cost PCIe expansion system for upgrading a system's GPU performance. The benefits of GPU computing can be applied in various areas including digital content creation, medical research, MotionDSP, financial simulation, 3D seismic interpretation, molecular modeling, 3D Ultrasound TechniScan, gene sequencing, weather modeling, and astrophysics. This is very cost effective when adding PCIe cards to a workstation or server, especially PCIe GPU cards that make most graphics applications run faster.
