The HX445Ca delivers exceptional performance by taking advantage of the latest AMD ‘Interlagos’ native Eight and Sixteen core processors.

Eight/Sixteen core coupled with Hypertransport 3 technology improves system efficiency and boosts application performance for computers running multiple applications at the same time or compute-intensive multi-threaded applications. The Viglen HX445Ca systems provide the ideal performance boost for the HPC environments of today and tomorrow.

Key Features

High Performance
Fitted with the latest generation of two Sixteen/Eight-Core AMD® Opteron™ 6200 Series (Socket G34). Support, HyperTransport HT3 Link.

Ultra Thin Chassis — Large Memory Capacity
With up to 64 processor cores and up to 512GB of RAM occupying only 1U of rackspace, the HX445Ca allows you to build a very powerful cluster using very little space.

Cost Effective
With 48 processing cores in a single 1U chassis, the power draw is significantly less when compared with 48 single core machines, which in turn reduces cooling costs and an overall lower total cost of ownership.
