Alveo U280 Engineering Sample (ES) Data Center Accelerator Card

  • Lead Time: 4 weeks (for quantity of 1)

Product Description

Xilinx® Alveo™ U280 Engineering Sample (ES) Data Center accelerator cards are designed to meet the constantly changing needs of the modern Data Center. Built on the Xilinx 16nm UltraScale™ architecture, Alveo U280 ES offers 8GB of HBM2 410 GB/s bandwidth to provide high-performance, adaptable acceleration for memory-bound, compute intensive applications including database, analytics, and machine learning inference. The U280 ES acceleration card includes PCI Express 4.0 support to leverage the latest server interconnect infrastructure for high-bandwidth host processors.

Alveo accelerator cards are adaptable to changing acceleration requirements and algorithm standards, capable of accelerating any workload without changing hardware, and reduce overall cost of ownership.

The Alveo U280 ES1 Data Center Accelerator cards can be utilized for application development and prototyping. The U280 ES1 cards include a USB cable and right angle auxiliary power cable for developers.

For production Alveo U280 information, see the Alveo Product Brief.

Key Features & Benefits

Fast – Highest Performance

  • High performance compute resources combined with high bandwidth memory for over 8x improvement in database workload performance

Adaptable – Accelerate Any Workload

  • Database search to natural language processing to any workload using the same accelerator card. As workload algorithms evolve, use reconfigurable hardware to adapt faster than fixed-function accelerator card product cycles

Accessible – Cloud <-> On-Premises Mobility

  • Deploy solutions on the cloud or on-premises interchangeably, scalable to application requirements
