The Asus ESC8000 G3 is a barebones 3U server designed to provide a combination of CPU and co-processor computing in a mid-size, rackmount form factor. It comes with a proprietary motherboard that supports dual Xeon E5 V3 and V4 series processors and the layout inside the system allows for up to eight dual-width, full-height, full-length expansion cards.

Depending on the co-processors desired, this system can accommodate between four and eight NVIDIA Tesla or Intel Xeon Phi cards, as well as a variety of other expansion options. Six front-accessible 2.5-inch drive bays are also provided.

The power supply is redundant, with three 1600W modules. These work in redundancy if the system is drawing less than a single unit's max wattage, and two will combine for up to 3200W if the system is drawing more than a single unit's max wattage.

If the system is fully loaded with co-processors, though, the power draw can potentially reach very high amperage. It is recommended to have a dedicated, high-amp circuit for the system to use - or potentially separate circuits to plug each of the three power supplies into.

Did you ever want to fit 8 GPU into a 3u rackspace? Then this ESC8000 is for you, optimized for high density GPU horsepower. Can fit 8 of our high end GPU's and have a substantial amount of rendering power with redundant power supplies to make sure there is no hiccup in your workflow.
