Hello tuanb4ddt,

 

 

With this type of configuration of two GPU boards will draw power from the board.

 

According to the TPs:

 

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/server-products/server-boards/S2600CW_TPS_... https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/server-products/server-boards/S2600CW_TPS_...

 

On unit 3.4.1

 

Slot 6 has enough power to supply the board for Slot 5 you will need to add power to the board from the power supply.

 

Please try this and let us know the outcome.

 

 

If there is anything else we can help please feel free to ask.

 

 

Best regards,

I use a 1600W power for this case, I think it's enough for 2 VGA

Hello tuanb4ddt,

 

 

If both cards are using power directly from the Power Supply.

 

Then is a good possibility that because the CPU already has its own GPU; then is not able to control a third GPU. Also, this type of configuration has not been tested.

 

But on the other hand, I will recommend if you want to use both video cards will be to install it with a second CPU. As mentioned on 3.4.12.1.2

 

 

Best regards,

But in this case it's not working?

Hello tuanb4ddt,

 

 

I will do some research to try to find an answer for your issue but, have you exposed your issue in ubuntu forums to see if any sort of specific OS configuration can do the trick for you?

Hi tuanb4ddt,

 

 

Have you had a moment to check with ubuntu forums as this seems to be closely related to specific OS configuration?
