SGI® Rackable™ servers are ideal to meet high frequency trading customers’ needs for high compute speed, industry-leading energy efficiency, and density. This new overclocking platform is designed into the Rackable half-depth 4U chassis, and is air-cooled for maximum energy efficiency. The platform is based on a motherboard capable of 3.33 GHz under normal operation and, with the overclocking feature, the processor can run up to 4.3 GHz, depending on the application. Using the half-depth platform allows an air-cooled solution with 50 percent or greater density with respect to other solutions on the market.
