The release of this product coincides with the announcement made by NVIDIA at the VMworld show that unveiled their new Tesla M60 card as well as the GRID 2.0 virtualization technology. Gigabyte's new G190-H44 is an official partner product supporting the Tesla M60 card, but also an NVIDIA GRID certified server solution.
The G190-H44 has been designed with a front-to-back airflow. By strategically placing the card slots, the CPU sockets, the power supplies and the 11 heavy duty 23,000rpm fans within the chassis, the G190-H44's components all receive a proper amount of cold air and are able to operate at their full potential.
Built with a pair of best-in-class 80 PLUS Platinum 2000W power supplies, the G190-H44 can run 4 high power computing cards while maintaining a power supply redundancy. The system is therefore designed to support the most high performing components without sacrificing the stability of the system and its ability to operate without interruption.
The G190-H44 can receive most of the standard double slot GPU / computing card models from Intel, NVIDIA and AMD. The G190-H44 can receive both passive and active computing cards, as long as the latter type can have an airflow direction aligned with the rackmount's front to back design.
Unlike competing products, the G190-H44 is capable to operate to its full capacity with the highest TDP models (145W) from the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 V3 product family.
The G190-H44 is capable to operate fully equipped in an ambient temperature of up to 35°C. As most of the studies led by industry experts tend to show that the sweet spot temperature for server rooms is around 26°C, the G190-H44 offers plenty of thermal headroom to fit in professional data centre environments.
In spite of its highly dense layout, the G190-H44 doesn't sacrifice expandability. In addition to its 4 double slot computing card bays, Gigabyte engineers have reserved space for 2 x 2.5" hot-swappable bays, 2 x 1.8" fixed internal bays, and 2 x full-length low-profile slots for add-on PCIe cards.
