P620 U.S. Configurator missing SSDs and Nvidia 810

2021-01-12, 17:20 PM

Figured the configurator is incomplete again, but wanna double check:

 

HD only option for disk drives(not counting the M.2 boot stuff).  Where's the SSD goodies?  HD is listed under section 'First Storage'.  I'd order two M.2, including boot device, but need to add other drives to the box.

 

Nvidia 810 used to be available, but is not showing now.  I've been using a couple Nvidia P620 cards in a P520c box, but they ain't cuttin' it, so thinking about going with two Nvidia 810 cards, as each card has 8 ports and each port can drive 4k monitors.  I have a large multi-monitor kludge right now and will be replacing most of it with a bunch of 4k monitors, running in both landscape and portrait modes.  Don't need gaming;  mainly spreadsheets, fairly static charts, etc., but for some reason the P620 cards are barely making it.

 

 

Are SSDs and Nvidia 810 going to be available again via the configurator or do I have to call and talk to a live body??

For the storage question, we did not officially qualify any 2.5" SATA SSDs on P620.  Official qualifications were limited mainly to M.2 NVMe drives and 3.5" SATA drives.  There are several reasons for this, but it mostly revolves around the product schedule and trends we see in storage as the platform continues to grow/age.  That being said, there's certainly nothing stopping from users installing 2.5" SATA SSDs in the platform as needed.  The drive bays are designed with the EOR tray to be able to accommodate a single 2.5" or 3.5" drive without the need for tools or extra mounting HW.  If ordering the system with no SATA devices, the chassis will have the drive cage and trays to support bays 1+2, along with a 2-drop SATA power cable and one SATA data cable.  If you need the hardware to support bays 3+4, you'd want to purchase Option kit  4XH0S69186.

 

For the GPU question, NVS810 was never supported on P620.  If you actually did see that listed somewhere, it was by mistake.  I believe Nvidia EOL'd that card some time ago and has not brought in a replacement for it as they basically killed off the NVS line of GPUs.  If you really wanted to use that GPU, I don't see any major technical concerns with doing so as it's a pretty straight forward full height bus powered device.  Just be aware that it obviously hasn't been qualified officially on the platform.

Ok, on my own for SSDs...

 

As for the 810 video card, I thought I ran it thru the configurator when the P620 box first became available last year, to check pricing for an overall package.  I took screenshots of the config stuff, but don't know where I put 'em;  couldn't find them just now, but not gonna worry about it for now.

 

Any rate, all I could find on the Nvidia site were 4 port cards and some other very expensive cards, neither of which is what I want/need.  Offhand, do you know of any AMD cards that might be 6 or 8 port and support 4k?  Don't need gaming speed, don't want super expensive cards, just want something that'll drive a lot of a variety of monitors.  While I could load up a P620 box with four Nvidia P620 cards, as I mentioned in my above post, I have some issues getting two of these cards in a P520c box to correctly drive my weird setup of monitors.  I have 1920x1080, 1920x 1200, 2560x1600, 4k, landscape mode, portrait mode and either Win10Pro or Nvidia, or both, don't like this mishmash...

P620 is more than 3 times more powerful than NVS810, so I guess if P620 does not meet your expectations, neither will the NVS810...

Well, maybe the NVS810 is out, then...

 

Might just buy the box with two P620 cards, pull the two I'm currently using and see if it blows or goes.  I'd rather not buy a bunch of what may not work well and be stuck, but picking up two new/fresh P620 cards would be $ok$.

 

In looking at the configurator options, the AMD WX 3200 is a 4-port card.  Might work, but I'd be buying 4 of 'em blind, which ain't good.  I've used AMD cards in the past successfully, so will keep this as a possibility.

 

After that, the cards get expensive and really expensive, so those are mostly out.  Nvidia P1000 is a possibility, but $dunno$ on that one.

 

My screen displays are pretty static, so don't need ultimate performance.  What I need are ports + pixels that'll play well with Win10 and the software I use. 

 

I will not have daisy chaining capability on the monitors, so all of that DP x.x chaining stuff is OUT.

 

Hard to say now, cuz I'll have to experiment a lot, but end result could be 8-16 4k monitors and a combo of landscape/portrait modes.  LOTS of pixels.  My initial setup(now) proved to me that MSFT didn't do enough testing on mixing monitors, for sure, so dunno how a lot of 4k monitors are gonna work.

 

All that said, it's very nice/convenient that the P620 box has FOUR video card slots.  That sure helps with loading up the screens.

Just ran the U.S. configurator again and noticed I could order a max of 2 hard drives.  This oughta be fixed to allow for more drives to be ordered/installed.  From above post, appears there is room in the box for more...PSREF says max of 5 3.5" SATA HDD, so looks like the configurator is off on this.
