Our new 3U PC is purpose-built for PCI expansion

Posted by Geoff Undrell on: in: News, Products

After our announcement back in July that the new 3U PC was on its way, we can officially confirm that it is now available to purchase. We’re thrilled to finally welcome the unit into our product family, where it has taken its rightful place as the first of our 3U units.

The perfect PC for PCI expansion

3U PC 3 Dual PCIeWe’ve designed the 3U PC to be as versatile as possible, meaning it’s ideal for PCIe expansion. And because our units are used for all kinds of different applications across various industries, we’ve allowed for even greater flexibility by offering two variants of the unit, with horizontal and vertical PCIe slots respectively. This makes it so much easier to enjoy the benefit of multiple graphics (GFX) cards inside a single rack mount PC.

Our horizontal model rises the PCI card through 90 degrees, enabling 2x consumer GFX cards 3U Redundant PSU 7 PCIto fit comfortably into the machine thanks to 5x full height single bays. Importantly, any GFX cards with power connectors built into the top edge, like NVIDIA GTX, can be used without compromising on the height of the unit – something which is typically difficult to achieve in 19” Rack units. By comparison, the vertical model of the 3U PC offers 7x full height single bays, allowing up to 3x professional GPUs to be fitted, whether Quadro or AMD.

Here’s what you can expect from our latest PC:

  • 448(W)x457(D)x133(H)mm
  • 2x 3.5″ or up to 6x 2.5″ hot swappable SSD/HDD bays
  • Up to 7x PCIe x16 slots
  • Dual Socket AMD EPYC or Intel Xeon CPU Support
  • Rubber mounted internal cooling fan(s)
  • Optional 800W Redundant Power Supply
  • Optional water-cooling functionality

Get it while it’s hot!

We can’t wait to show you what our 3U PC can do. It’s got a load of PCIe potential to look forward to, so if you would like to find out how you can make the most out of your graphics cards by getting your hands on the new unit, get in touch with one of the team.
