Institutional/Education customers are a beloved segment of our user base here at Thinkmate. Using advanced GPUs, these are the people working — sometimes late into the night — to create solutions to some of the world’s toughest challenges, like curing diseases and creating artificial intelligence.
But many of these customers don’t have it easy. Many are provided with limited funding or budgets, preventing some great ideas from even getting off the ground.
We are constantly thinking about creative ways to make our systems more accessible to EDU customers. We’ve had tremendous success when we were the first to market server systems with support for consumer-grade Geforce GTX and Titan X cards. However, while that has worked fine as an economical introduction to GPU computing, we did not have any EDU-specific offers for the cards actually dedicated to GPU computing: Tesla.
With pressure to deliver their work more intense than ever, serious researchers demand the highest performance and reliability. They need datacenter-grade computing and direct support to overcome technical or operational problems.
Today, we’re providing that. We are announcing substantial discounts for latest-generation Tesla cards based on the Pascal architecture — Providing up to a whopping $1,500 discount per card. These discounts are available immediately.
Currently, the discounts apply to Tesla P40 and P100 PCIe cards, when configured as part of any compatible Thinkmate system.
Yes, the discount is per card. With no limits. That’s the kind of fine print that almost deserves to be a headline.
We are not announcing an end date for this offer yet, but if you or anyone you know is in the market for these systems, we recommend taking action as soon as you can. Don't forget to share with your colleagues!
Welcome to datacenter-grade computing
A Thinkmate sales engineer needs to manually apply these discounts as they will not appear on the Thinkmate configurator. You can browse and configure systems normally and use the Submit for Review button in the configurator bar. This will get forwarded to a Thinkmate sales engineer who then will be able to apply any discounts. You can also call us at 1-800-371-1212 and we’ll help you put together a system if you need some direction. We might even be able to get additional discounts that are only available to EDU customers.
This offer is open to:
- Students or employees with .edu or .ac email addresses
- State or local government-sanctioned agencies that purchase on behalf of schools
See specific eligibility details at the end of this article.
We work hard to create the most modern, informative and complete system in the industry, and we’ve made it easy for you to find and configure a server compatible with the Tesla card you plan to use.NVIDIA Tesla P100 Servers
