Computex 2014 Tyan unveiled several of their latest servers specifically designed to address the HPC market. These servers leverage GPUs as co-processors to deliver astounding performance in a number of different chassis sizes.
This 4U high density platform utilizes a more traditional design but allows for 8 PCIe 3.0 slots to cram as many GPUs into a single chassis as possible. Dual onboard 10GbE also provides plenty of native communication throughput for most applications.
Moving to slimmer form factor we can see the two separate GPU bays in this slim 2U server chassis. The rear left and forward right compartments actually hold two GPUs each, which are mounted horizontally to provide the maximum amount of GPU power in a small space.
Powering this setup with a few E5-2600 series processors will provide plenty of CPU to enable the co-processors to handle heavy compute loads.
This 1U server chassis manages to still allow the installation of two GPUs horizontally in a similar offset orientation, with one in the front and another in the rear of the chassis. The high-performance density in a slim form factor is outstanding, and Tyan is competing aggressively in the co-processor enabled server market.
