NVIDIA’s DIGITS DevBox computer is mainly for deep learning research, the performance is very strong, it is equipped with four GTX Titan X graphics card, single graphics floating point performance is 7 TFLOPS, four cards is 28TFLOPS, in the future there may be extended to eight cards.
This NVIDIA PC will apparently corporate with OEM vendors, but still we don’t know who is it specifically, but the chassis is Corsair Air 540.
