Description

Tryscannosaurus Rex is a laser scanning workstation, designed around twin 32-core Xeon Max 9462 processors and twin RTX 4000 SFF ADA 20GB video cards.

General System Design

This build is designed around twin 32-core Xeon Max 9462 processors and twin RTX 4000 SFF ADA 20GB video cards.

Software Workload/Customer Need

This customer needed a set of 6 powerful new workstations to handle their growing professional workload that would last a long time.

This build was designed for processing large reality capture files in FARO scene and rendering animations and massive model assemblies in Autodesk products.

This build was purchased as a set of Tryscannosaurus Rex, Mascanodon, Triscanatops, Saber Tooth Scanner, Pterodascanyl, and Dragonscanzord.

This customer also purchased Super Tower of PowerDEVR 1DEVR 2DEVR 3Accelerated Design, Alpha 1, and MEAN CAD 1.

Design Rationale

  • The dual Xeon MAX 9462 gives the customer a decent amount of single-core performance for lightly-threaded loads, extremely high multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks, and an extremely high amount of on-CPU HBM cache. This cache allows the user to keep some files directly on the CPU, without having to use the RAM for processing.
  • Custom liquid cooling was installed on the dual CPUs to keep them running as fast as possible. The customer is savvy enough to maintain the loop on their own.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with room for 16 RAM slots, 2 add-in storage expanders, 2 dual-slot GPUs, and a high-end NVME RAID controller. Onboard 10G networking was a plus.
  • The customer requested 1TB of memory in a 16x64GB DDR5-4800 ECC fashion. This allows the user to load very large scans into RAM, and go up to 4TB RAM.
  • The customer wanted a triple-layer storage setup; 4TB NVME RAID0 for OS+programs, 7x4TB NVME RAID0 for main storage, and 5x12TB HDD RAID5 for local backup. This gives the user an extremely potent array for OS, main storage, and local backup.
  • This particular build wouldn’t be doing any heavy GPU workloads, but a high amount of  VRAM for multiple monitors was still considered. We recommended twin RTX 4000 ADA SFF 20GB for their high VRAM and low power requirement.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1600W power supply was recommended.
  • We used a special dual-system case to fit the build.
  • We used our highest-performing fans to ensure proper cooling for the overall build.
