Altix ICE 8400
Altix ICE 8400 eliminates the need for proprietary processors and operating systems and contains significant enhancements such as through and through Quad Data Rate InfiniBand interconnect. It can support for up to 128 processors (1,536 cores) per cabinet with support for 130W CPU sockets. The products also has three on-board Mellanox ConnectX-2 InfiniBand HCA compute blade configurations, including single-port, dual-port or two single-port chipsets. The system fully leverages SGI’s hypercube topology to enable seamless cabinet-level upgrades without any production downtime, saving millions of core hours in the process.
