Architecture: Xeon E5-2600v2    Form Factor: Flex    Uses: Accelerator, Compute, Server

Our Pinnacle 2FX2601 offers dual processors, optional onboard InfiniBand or 10GbE, and up to 512GB of memory with enough space to hold up to three 3.5″ drives or four 2.5″ drives. This model is designed to hold a single GPU or co-processor with the inclusion of plenty of cooling elements to ensure solid performance. Up to two of these nodes can be installed in our 2U Pinnacle Flex enclosure.

Features & Benefits

  • Innovative Pinnacle Flex Blade

    Unique form factor allows for multiple configurations to meet your most demanding computational needs.  Up to two of these modules in just 2U of rack space and support for the highest wattage processors.  This 2FX2601 can also be mixed with two 1FX2601 nodes in the same Flex housing.  More info on Pinnacle Flex systems.

  • Accelerator Support

    The 2FX2601 was designed to support a GPU or Xeon Phi coprocessor for your parallel-intensive applications while maintaining the density of half-size form factor.

  • Multiple Drive Options

    SATA, SAS, and SSD drives supported – up to 18TB of capacity!  You can mix and match high capacity with high performance drives!

  • High-speed Interconnect Built In

    Need more than gigabit speed?  These systems can come equipped with up to 56Gb/s Infiniband or 10/40Gb/s Ethernet right on the motherboard!
