Atlanta, GA, United States, 2011/08/24 - Cubix Corportation partners with ProFlixSales with the Cubix GPU Xpander line of GPU expansion chassis. These multi-GPU chassis can speed color grading processes up to 8 times faster than single GPU systems - CubixGpu.com / ProFlixSales.com.
Cubix Corporation partners with ProFlixSales of Atlanta, GA, to provide production and post-production professionals in No. America with a complete line-up of hardware and software solutions.
"Cubix Corporation is proud to bring ProFlixSales onboard", stated Eric Fiegehen, Director of Visualization and GPU Compute Solutions for Cubix Corporation. "Cubix GPU-Xpander not only enhances ProFlixSales' DaVinci Resolve offerings, but also provides a reliable, time-tested professional expansion platform for applications from other ProFlixSales vendors such as Adobe, ATTO, Thompson Grass Valley, AJA, and others."
The announcement coincides with the publication from post-production trade magazine Creative Cow of its NAB 2011 Blue Ribbon Awards issue, where Cubix's GPU-Xpander was singled-out among the most exciting new products seen for digital post-production workflows.
"The industry is beginning to understand how Cubix is able to compliment a wide variety of GPU-related and non-GPU specific applications. We're in the process of having some training videos produced, in conjunction with DaVinci Resolve and other related vendors, by Class On Demand, which will only help to broaden the appeal of this product line"
"We congratulate Cubix on their successful NAB 2011 showing" said Mike Hill, VP Products at ProFlixSales. "It confirms our evaluation of the Cubix GPU-Xpander as an industry leading solution". "This is the type of product that we seek out to offer our customers and are proud to provide".
The GPU Xpander can accelerate Davinci Resolve 8 performance up to 8 times that of a base system with a single GPU. The performance gain pays for itself in just a few projects by drastically reducing the time spent on each color grading project.
The GPU Xpander product line is a series of unique PCIe slot expansion solutions that offers 2 - 8 additional PCI Express Gen2 x16 slots per workstation or server. GPU-Xpander solves the problems of too few slots and watts in Apple Mac Pro computers, while enabling modular, scalable GPU Compute growth to Windows and Linux application markets which have to carefully manage their IT growth during a struggling economy using legacy blades and rackmount PC systems. GPU-Xpander Rackmount 2 and Rackmount 8 will usually run perfectly with host systems that have been in place for the past 2-3 years.
The DaVinci Resolve 8-certified GPU-Xpander Desktop 4 provides Resolve 8 users with four double-wide PCIe x16 slots, while using only 1 slot in the Mac Pro (or a single 16-channel slot in the Linux-certified host), a 1200W auto-ranging power supply, optional "Quiet Fan" exhaust system for Mac Pro, and a 1meter data transfer cable + host interface card which supports a full 80Gbps PCIe x16 bandwidth connection.
