 Win2 Rackmount 8 5U is a GPU powerhouse! The system consists of a HostEngine 2U computer which is connected to Xpander Rackmount 8 5U and is designed to run up to eight GPUs. Not only will you have maximum GPU scalability, you will need minimum space. Both chassis are rackmountable, rugged and low profile. For the extreme colorist, hang on! The Win2U Rackmount 8 5U will give you the image quality at the speed you need to slice through entire workload. The system is loaded with Windows 8.1 Pro, and Cubix GPU Manager which monitors the health and performance of both the GPUs and Xpander. .
