Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq:
SMCI), a leader in application-optimized, high performance server solutions,
today announced availability of the industry’s first line of 6-core, 4-way
servers. Supermicro’s 8015C-T, 8025C-3R and 8045C-3R SuperServers optimized
for the 6-Core Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor 7400 series feature a large memory
footprint, incredible energy efficiency, and robust virtualization
“With Supermicro’s industry-leading, high-efficiency Server Building
Block Solutions, we are able to deliver exceptional value to customers
looking for consolidation and virtualization,” asserts Charles Liang,
president and CEO of Supermicro. “Our 1U, 2U and 4U SuperServers optimized
for the new Intel Xeon 7400 (Dunnington) processors provide compelling
solutions for the dense rack segment, especially when equipped with Intel’s
new 65-watt 6-core processors. These servers can deliver up to 35% better
virtualization performance and expand overall performance by up to 45%(*)
compared to previous generations, within the same power envelope.”
“The multi-core Intel(R) Xeon(R) Processor 7400 series will help
Supermicro’s SuperServer line deliver new levels of performance, scalability
and headroom required for demanding enterprise applications,” said Kirk
Skaugen, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Server Platforms Group.
Based on Supermicro’s X7QCE and X7QC3 serverboards, the 8015C-T, 8025C-3R
and 8045C-3R SuperServers all support up to 192GB of fully buffered DDR2 667
or 533MHz memory via 24 DIMM slots. Great for virtualization, this large
memory capacity boosts performance for a wide range of applications.
With 90%+ power supply efficiency and optimal cooling designs, these
energy-efficient servers deliver breakthrough performance-per-watt(*).
Optimized for 45nm processors, the performance boosting features of these
systems also include four dedicated high-speed interconnects, 6-core
processors with Intel Core microarchitecture, and 64 MB snoop filter.
Supermicro offers 4-way SuperServers in 1U, 2U and 4U form factors for
customers to choose from that support the full range of Xeon 7400 (Dunnington)
processor SKUs. With performance optimized 130-watt, rack optimized 80-watt,
and high-density rack optimized 65-watt 6-core SKUs, customers now have many
choices to select the server that is best for their applications.
