The GPU-Xpander Desktop Elite with 1500W Power Supply from Cubix is a portable PCIe expansion enclosure that enables connection of Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) or other controllers to a host computer. The Desktop Elite adds four single-slot or dual-slot PCIe cards in your host PC or Mac Pro. Connecting Desktop Elite to Apple Mac Pro, Linux or Microsoft Windows 7/8 host computers provides desktop operators with the ability to support up to four dual-slot GPUs, graphics cards or other PCIe cards such as Red Rocket, nVIDIA SDI Capture and more.
The Xpander Desktop Elite also supports applications that exploit multiple GPUs, including rendering graphics or high-performance computing (HPC). The Desktop Elite is an economical way to add GPUs or other PCIe cards to your host computer. Installing the Cubix Host Interface Controller (HIC) in an available PCIe Gen 2/Gen 3 x16 slot within your host computer assures your operators that they will enjoy a full 80 Gb/s (5 Gb/s x 16 lanes) transfer rate to and from the GPUs or other cards you install in Xpander Desktop Elite.
You can add four nVIDIA Quadro 4000/5000/6000, GeForce GTX 580/680, Tesla C2050/C2070/C2075 graphics or other controllers to any computer that has an available PCIe expansion slot using Xpander Desktop Elite. Installing the HIC in the computer's PCIe x16 slot and connecting it to Desktop Elite means you have added four dual-slot or four single-slot, CUDA-capable graphics or HPC controllers to your current PC or Mac Pro without buying a new computer.
