Thinkstation P330 & GeForce GTX compatibility

I'm a lucky owner of a Thinkstation P330.

 

All woeks well, but adding a GTX series (e.g. GTX 1060 6Gb) would increase performances in some 3D work we do (cloud points modeling)


Does anyone know the way to make a gtx work on that workstation?

I've read about incompatibility between P330 & GTX series... 

 

Many thanks to everyone!

 

Luca.

Re: Thinkstation P330 & GeForce GTX compatibility

We actually have a GeForce GTX 1060 card that we fully support on P330 Tower models (and a 1070/1080 option as well).  

 

Here are the FRUs:

GTX 1060 FRU - 01AJ844

GTX 1060 extender bracket FRU - 01EF912

 

The extender bracket is used to secure the card within the chassis for shipment/transport.  You could get away without it, but only if your system is already deployed and would not need to be moved/transported.  Shipping the unit without the bracket installed could result in damage to the motherboard.

 

Note that you'll also want to make sure you have the larger power supply for P330 to support the card.  With that, the front fan would also normally be installed in the system.  FRUs for both of those parts are below:

400W PSU - FRU 00PC738

Front Fan Assembly - FRU 01EF548

 

 

Note that I think you might be able to get the 1060 Founders Editiion card to install in P330 Tower as well, but it could be a very tight fit.  P330 Tower simply doesn't have a lot of extra room/volume, so installing large off the shelf GPUs can be very tough and fitment is not guaranteed.  I'd recommend the supported card listed above to make sure everything will work OK.

I think you'll be better off looking at Founder's Edition cards.  Those will be the closest in physical dimensions to the one that we actually support (which is based off the FE design).
