VPX3U-A4500E-CX7 (WOLF-144L)

HPEC with NVIDIA Ampere GPU and ConnectX-7 SmartNIC

  • NVIDIA RTX™ GA104 GPU with 5888 CUDA Cores, 184 Tensor Cores, 46 RT Cores
  • NVIDIA ConnectX-7 provides the module with up to 100GbE Ethernet and PCIe Gen4 switch
  • 16 GB GDDR6 256-bit memory with up to 512 GB/s
  • Module power: 80-170W, configurable



The VPX3U-A4500E-CX7 HPEC module includes an NVIDIA RTX™ A4500 embedded GPU and a ConnectX SmartNIC. The A4500 embedded GPU provides advanced processing capabilities for high performance embedded computing (HPEC) and artificial intelligence (AI) processing. The ConnectX-7 provides the Ethernet and PCIe connectivity needed to move large datasets efficiently.

The NVIDIA Ampere architecture includes CUDA cores for HPEC, 3rd generation Tensor cores for AI and data science computations, and 2nd generation Ampere Ray Tracing (RT) cores for visually accurate rendering. The Ampere architecture introduces support for PCIe Gen 4, improvements to memory handling, and improvements to warp scheduling, which all optimize the way data is distributed for processing. The Ampere GPU is very power efficient, delivering significantly more performance per watt compared to previous generations.

The NVIDIA ConnectX-7 SmartNIC provides PCIe and Ethernet connectivity. ConnectX-7 is ideal for the high-speed, secure, data transfer capabilities required for data-heavy tasks such as sensor data processing and other C5ISR tasks. The ConnectX-7 also provides support for RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE), enabling the fastest method for transferring data across the network to the GPU.
