A C410X external chassis with PCI-Express slots can be attached to the server to add up to 32 graphics processors. The server comes with either the Novell Suse, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5, Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows HPC Server 2008 operating systems.
Dell also chose AMD over Intel because it provides flexibility on server pricing, company officials said. The C6145 is priced starting at $18,000 and will be available Feb. 28 in 20 countries, including the U.S., Canada, Germany, the U.K. and France.
