PowerEdge C410x — Whiteboard topology

In the last of my GPGPU/PowerEdge C410x trilogy I offer up a whiteboard session with the system’s architect, Joe Sekel.

Some of the topics Joe walks through:

  • How does having remote GPGPUs connected via cable back to a server compare in performance to having the GPGPUs embedded in the server?
  • The topology of the PCI express  x16 (16 lanes per link) plumbing: from the chipset in the host sever through to the GPGPU.
  • The data transfer bandwidth that x16 Gen 2 gives you.

Pau for now…
