Thanks, I'm leaning towards that. Some opinions here and here are that the increased latency of AOC vs DAC is not something I need to be concerned about. I was concerned since I'm using this for remote desktop and that could have affected responsiveness.
A Mellanox rep instructed me to only...

As of today they are still selling. This seems like the best deal for high speed nics.
Just to confirm: this card provides 40gbe for tcp/ip traffic?
Next question is cabling: I need ~10m (32') and this goes through some tight framing so the bulky sfp ends will be a problem. Any recommendations...
I was reading about IPoIB, which I probably need. Looks like a lot of performance is lost. This seems to be too much trouble to be worth it.
Now the question is what are good nics and deals. I guess I should ask in great deals sub.
I have these old cards and I know almost nothing about infiniband. Dual ports and 20gb/s, not sure if that is per port or not.
Use case is for remote desktop and file sharing between workstation and gpu server about 11meters apart.
Workstation is arch linux and likely a debian based OS for the...
Are these still for sale?
I don't know much about nvme. I have an AsRock X79 Extreme6 board, will either work as a system drive? That is how I will use them.
Any idea how much life is left in them? How long can I expect them to go? Thanks.
I would have liked to get 1080ti's as they are in my budget and I don't need the absolute fastest. But the problem is the RAM. The 2080ti's can work with fp16 effectively doubling to 22gb RAM. That's the bigger bottleneck.
I hope you're right @T_Minus, they are expensive
fwiw I am looking at...
Belated Hello Venturi,
You're not alone feeling overwhelmed, I feel it daily. Reading /r/machinelearning it seems everyone is dealing with that.
I myself am a returning student just finishing off my Honours and applying to grad school.
Good to meet you
