The Best and Most Reliable Graphics Cards in 2019: GPUs for Medical & Industrial Applications


Installing a graphics card can significantly enhance computing performance. A better graphics card improves the computing experience by playing better video and freeing up memory.

GPUs—which have grown from computer-gaming roots—now enhance everything from medical imaging to smart surveillance. The GPU parses petabytes of data orders of magnitude faster than traditional CPUs, in applications ranging from intelligent video analytics to deep learning.

Medical Solution Case Study - 3D Computed Tomography

3D Computed Tomography (CT) is a nondestructive scanning technology that allows users to view and inspect the external and internal structures of an object in a 3D space. It works by taking hundreds or thousands of 2D digital radiography projections around the 360 degree rotation of an object.

A medical equipment builder chose Advantech’s high performance system—IPC-7130, AIMB-786, and RTX 2080 Ti—for their CT scan computing in order to meet the demands of big data and 3D imaging generation and processing.

Equipped with Intel Core i7-8700 and 64GB of memory, it allows volumes of data to be reformatted in various planes or even as volumetric (3D) representations of structures. Additionally, the IPC-7130 is very quiet due to a built-in Intelligent System Module enabling fan control and remote manageability. It supports dual 3.5 inch hot swap trays for storing large image data in RAID 1. The AIMB-786 provides multiple communication interfaces and expansion slots—such as a fiber card and LAN for picture archiving and communication system (PACS) connection. Furthermore, RTX 2080 Ti is powered by the Turing GPU architecture and the all-new RTX platform and provides a 6x performance improvement over previous-generation graphics cards.

Why Advantech IPC + GPU?

When installing graphics cards in the system, users often face challenges related to heat dissipation, power budgeting, cable routing and reliability, and maintenance efforts.

The high-end GPU RTX 2080 Ti draws an impressive 250 watts, with GPU temperature rates of up to 96 degrees Celsius (93 degrees, 50% clock showdown). With a highly reliable and ruggedized design, Advantech’s systems are designed to prevent hot air from recirculating within the rack chassis.

The height of gaming graphics cards on the market often exceeds two slots, which may cause interference in the mechanism and system configuration and assembly. Advantech's DQA process, encompassing a thermal profile, vibration test, and burn-in test, offers a trusted and certified integration solution to maximize production efficiency and performance.
