 Win2U Rackmount Elite is a Host Engine 2U computer connected to Xpander Rackmount Elite and is designed to run up to four GTX or Quadro Series GPUs plus 2x 8-channel slots for SDI capture or RED Rocket transcoding cards. Win2U Rackmount Elite has the quiet fan option and can sit on a desktop or be rackmounted. If you need up to four double-wide GPUs and two additional slots for single-wide cards, Win2U Rackmount Elite is the perfect system solution for you. The Win2U Rackmount Elite comes loaded with Windows 8.1 Pro, and Cubix GPU Manager which monitors the health and performance of both the GPUs and Xpander. [Note: Each Customer/End User must add your own Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve 11 license key.]
