Most Compact Purley 2U GPU Server for Deep Learning / HPC / VDI Applications
Part No. PNYSRA28000000-000

Extend Your Scale with Intel® Xeon® Scalable

PNYSRA28 series is built around Intel Skylake CPU architecture – ‘Intel® Xeon® Scalable’.
This new product family provides a wealth of new options in scalability – across compute, network and storage – to deliver solutions for a range of applications.

CPU Key Features

Intel® Xeon® Scalable CPU architecture brings improved features and functionality at both the host and fabric levels. These enable performance improvements – both natively on the chip and for future extensibility through compute, network and storage peripherals.

  • Memory Optimization:
    Memory speed of up to 2666MHz
    Up to 12 DIMMs per socket
  • Storage:
    Built in support for VROC
    Intel Optane ready
  • Networking:
    Intel Omni-Path ready

·       Optimized Thermal Design for Efficient Energy Consumption

PNYSRA28 series is a highly energy efficient system thanks to the innovative rack design and internal placement. Given its power saving architecture, including 8 high performance 15000rpm fans and 2 top-efficiency 80+ Titanium power supply units, the PNYSRA28 series guarantees an excellent airflow and thermal properties by keeping power consumption at the lowest level possible. This combination of large computing power, high energy efficiency and compact 2U footprint allows the PNYSRA28 series to deliver a great Megaflops / Teraflops per watt performance and therefore to help the most advanced supercomputing infrastructures to significantly reduce energy bills while boosting the execution of their applications.
