The Ibex Pro is one supercharged machine that will probably hurt your electric bill.
System76’s fastest Ibex Pro with Ubuntu Server 16.10 packs some crazy horsepower with Intel’s latest 22-core Xeon E5 v4 chips and eight Nvidia Tesla P100 graphics processors.
It’s got the same number of GPUs as Nvidia’s superfast DGX-1, which is being used for deep learning. System76 is targeting the Ibex Pro — which is a rack server — at the same market as the DGX-1. The server has fewer, but newer, CPUs, compared to the DGX-1.
An entry-level Ibex Pro priced at $9,575 will run Ubuntu Server 16.10, with a six-core Intel Xeon E5-2603v4 chip, 16GB of memory, a Tesla K40 GPU, and 250GB of storage.
