Magma to complete S-OEM certification for high-performance Tesla GPU expansion products.
San Diego, Calif. (Mar. 10, 2014) - Magma today announced it has joined the NVIDIA® Tesla® Preferred Partner Program, expanding Magma’s reach into high performance computing (HPC) by providing product support for NVIDIA’s Tesla GPU accelerator product line.

Today Magma announced that Tools 4 Media, an Apple Authorized Service Center based in Bogota, Colombia, has become an authorized distributor of Magma products. As Apple introduces the new Mac Mini and Mac Pro to Latin American markets, the need for expansion systems that enable high performance applications using traditional PCIe cards such as professional audio and video becomes immediate. To respond to such need, Magma is approaching Latin American resellers that cater to the performance-intensive market segment in their respective countries.
Within the last 3 years, Thunderbolt has made its way into an increasing amount of workflows. From studios, to mobile production, more and more people are incorporating Thunderbolt equipped hardware for its speed, simplicity, and availability. With the recent arrival of Thunderbolt 2, emphasis has been on speed, doubling from 10 Gb/s to 20 Gb/s. Faster speed means more data, more consumption, more detail, and the expansion of possibilities for both the audio and video industry.
Updated products set to ship by the beggining March. New versions to be priced the same as original Thunderbolt™ versions. San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 15, 2014 Magma today announced the planned release of a Thunderbolt™ 2 compatible version of its popular EB1T, EB3T and ROBEN-3TS and 3TX expansion computing systems. The updated products will carry the same prices as the original, Thunderbolt™ versions, and will begin shipping to select resellers in the first part of March.
Just another shiny box? Quite the opposite. Expansion chassis are more than just metal panels and some connectors. A PCIe chassis is easily one of the most important pieces of hardware in creative workflows and networks, as they connect and route high speed data to and from all of the other pieces of hardware. With this in mind, Magma’s newest chassis, the ROBEN-3, is one of the most advanced chassis Magma has ever built. We want to give you a behind the scenes look at what it took to develop, design, and manufacture our latest Thunderbolt connected chassis, ROBEN-3.
2013 has been an exciting year at Magma. From introducing ROBEN-3, to attending shows like IBC in Amstedram, and AES in New York, we have been hard at work making sure we provide the best products and support to creative professionals everywhere.
