RAVE Computer Hits the Road Highlighting its Latest Product Offerings

Share Article

From blazing fast GPU compute CIPHER workstations, to complete turn-key VR systems, and the latest image generators for training and simulation, RAVE has something for every company looking for more productivity and a technological edge.


RAVE Computer will be highlighting three systems at SUPERCOMPUTING 2016, including a 1U Supermicro server with NVIDIA Tesla P100 GPU’s, and two systems from their CIPHER line of liquid-cooled Tesla® GPUworkstations. RAVE will be exhibiting in booth 3666.

“At last year’s Supercomputing conference, we saw an incredible amount of interest in our liquid-cooled TESLA® K80 product,” said Tony Scicluna, Vice President of Sales for RAVE Computer. “The CIPHER allows researchers and developers to test their applications in a true HPC environment without monopolizing a server farm. Technically, you’re prototyping algorithms and incrementally developing and testing CUDA kernels at your desk prior to delivering a final computational run on a server farm. It ends up saving everyone significant time and money.” Scicluna added, “Smaller businesses and institutions will also benefit tremendously from this technology, where now you can utilize the incredible power of the K80 instead of a less powerful K20 or K40, and still have a computer that doesn’t require a server room to keep it cool. By leveraging the liquid-cooling capabilities of CIPHER’s GPU’s and CPU’s, it runs nearly silent, making it a perfect desktop super-workstation.”

RAVE, working with Ebullient® DirectJet™ cooling systems, solved this thermal problem enabling consumers to take full advantage of the performance capabilities of their high-end graphics cards, including GPU Boost mode. This full-time “Boost mode” allows the GPU’s to run 55% faster than traditional air-cooled solutions. RAVE and Ebullient offer a compact liquid-cooled solution for the NVIDIA K80 that keeps the card well within its temperature specifications during operation.

The RAVE CIPHER comes in three variations appropriately named “R10” (One K80), “R20” (Two K80’s), and “R40” (Four K80’s), based on the number of GPU’s installed in each system. Each model integrates Intel® Xeon® processors, with up to 22 cores and allows for an option to swap in an NVIDIA® Quadro® K6000 video card for high-resolution video output of data.


As an acknowledged leader in the production of image generators, RAVE will be showing off a sampling of their 2U and 4U servers. RAVE’s servers are lightning fast, reliable systems which highlight combinations of the latest CPU and GPU power including NVIDIA’s Pascal-series GeForce® and Quadro® offerings.

RAVE will also highlight their MOBILEBEAST VR. “The RAVE MOBILEBEAST VR has proven itself as irreplaceable for any company looking to dive head-long into high-end 3D visualizations and VR deployments,” said Matt Moy, product specialist at RAVE. “Its high CPU core count tethered with dual NVIDIA® Quadro® P6000 cards in an SLI bridge configuration, make short work of both iRay® and Autodesk® VRED® ray tracing content.” Tests have shown that the MOBILEBEAST VR puts out a consistent 90+ frames per second when using VRED® straight out of the box.

RAVE’s industry partner NVIDIA® will be showing off their new deep learning appliance as well. “The NVIDIA® DGX-1® is an incredible machine for any company delving into artificial intelligence, deep learning, or applications that need to crunch massive datasets. Based around eight NVIDIA® Tesla® P100 GPU’s, the DGX-1® performs as if you have 250 standard servers in your data center,” stated Stephen Couchman, Director of Marketing at RAVE. “With the natural symbiosis of training & simulation and artificial intelligence, the DGX-1® will sort incredible amounts of after-action data, and make results available that can be put into the field immediately.”

About the Events

The SC Conference (November 13 – 18) is dedicated to showcasing work in high-performance computing, networking, storage and analysis by the international HPC community. The core of the Conference is the Technical Program with peer-reviewed content for every track; a series of Student Programs to engage and foster the next generation of HPC professionals; community awards to honor researchers in the field; and SCinet, the fastest research network built to support high performing applications and demonstrations during the Conference.

The Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) is the world’s largest modeling, simulation, and training conference. It is being held November 28 to December 2 in Orlando, Florida, USA, and it consists of peer-reviewed paper presentations, tutorials, special events, professional workshops, a commercial exhibit hall, a serious games competition, and STEM events for teachers and secondary students. I/ITSEC is organized by the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA), which promotes international and interdisciplinary cooperation within the fields of modeling and simulation (M&S), training, education, analysis, and related disciplines at this annual meeting. The NTSA is an affiliate subsidiary of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA). Hence, I/ITSEC also emphasizes themes related to defense and security.
