Specifications

Warning

Power and airflow specifications are provided in NVIDIA BlueField-2 DPUs Electrical and Thermal Specifications document, which is available at NVOnline following login.

Important

The BlueField-2 DPU is designed and validated for operation in data-center servers and other large environments that guarantee proper power supply and airflow conditions.

The DPU is not intended for installation on a desktop or a workstation. Moreover, installing the DPU in any system without proper power and airflow levels can impact the DPU's functionality and potentially damage it. Failure to meet the environmental requirements listed in this user manual may void the warranty.

Important

Ensure your system supports the following system hardware and power supply requirements prior to installing your card.

HHHL DPUs

75W or greater system power supply through the PCIe x8 interface

FHHL DPUs

E-Series DPUs: A maximum of 75W system power supply through the PCIe x16 interface.

P-Series DPUs: A minimum of 75W or greater system power supply through the PCIe x16 interface, and an additional 75W through the supplementary 6-pin ATX power supply connector.
