Supermicro Launches PCI-E Gen 2 Servers and Workstations With 1600 FSB and 800 MHz Memory

    First with Low-Power 1.5V FB-DIMM Memory Support

    SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 12 /CNW/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq:  
SMCI), a leader in application optimized high performance server solutions,
today launched new lines of motherboards, servers and workstations optimized
for 1600 FSB Quad-Core Intel(R) Xeon(R) 5400 Series (Harpertown) and Dual-Core
Intel Xeon 5200 Series (Wolfdale-DP) processors. These latest dual-processor
(DP) server and workstation solutions deliver sharply increased performance,
energy efficiency and memory capacity. These new systems are now on display at
SuperComputing 2007 in Reno, Nevada, booth 1229, from November 12-15.
    "With support for a 1600 MHz dual point-to-point CPU bus and 800 MHz 1.5V
FB-DIMM memory, as well as Gen 2 PCI-Express, our new SuperServers and
workstations based on the Intel 5400 (Seaburg) chipset deliver more than 30%
system performance gains(*)," said Charles Liang, president and CEO of
Supermicro. "These highly scalable solutions offer more high-performance
expansions slots and double the I/O bandwidth capacity of Gen 1 PCI-Express.
Optimized for memory-hungry applications, Supermicro already fully supports
low-power 1.5-volt fully-buffered DDR2 (FBD) memory on these new solutions to
maximize energy efficiency and save up to 40 watts on memory power consumption
per system."
    "The new Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5400 series and Dual-Core Intel
Xeon 5200 series processors are enabling Supermicro to provide its customers
with new levels of performance and flexibility in DP server solutions," said
Kirk Skaugen, vice president, Digital Enterprise Group, Intel Corporation.
"The breakthrough performance per watt of these new Intel Xeon processors is
enabling Supermicro to innovate around highly scalable designs from 1U to 4U
and tower servers."
    Designed for 2U and 4U servers, Supermicro's X7DWN+ serverboard features
16 FBDIMM slots for up to 128 GB of memory and seven high-performance
expansion slots including three that support Gen 2 PCI-E, and one UIO slot for
flexible upgrades.  Also based on the Intel 5400 (Seaburg) chipset, the new
X7DWA-N workstation motherboard supports two PCI-E x16 Gen 2 slots for
high-performance graphics, 7.1 high-definition audio and dual 1394 Firewire
ports, making it an ideal high-performance graphics/CAD engineering
workstation platform.
    Other outstanding Seaburg chipset-based server platforms being introduced
by Supermicro include the X7DWU, X7DWT, X7DWT-INF, and X7DWE. The X7DWU
platform delivers flexible UIO server solutions with up to three add-on cards
in a 1U form factor or seven add-on cards (including four full-height) in a
2U.  As the latest 1U Twin(TM) platforms, two X7DWT or X7DWT-INF serverboards
fit into a single 1U chassis to provide two nodes per 1U of rack space or up
to 84 nodes per 42U rack.  Meanwhile, the feature-rich X7DWE serverboard with
five PCI-E x8 of which four are Gen 2, making it ideal for a wide range of
server applications.
    Supermicro systems optimized for the new Quad-Core Xeon 5400 and
Dual-Core 5200 Series processors include the following:

    SuperServer 6015W-UR

    Flexible 1U UIO server supports three add-on cards (one can be UIO) and
four hot-swap SAS/SATA drives; UIO architecture enables easy upgrades to
multiple internal and external SAS options with or without RAID5, dual-port 10
Gigabit Ethernet, or 4-port Gigabit Ethernet

    SuperServer 6025W-NTR+

    2U with 16 FBDIMM for 128GB memory, 6 hot-swap SATA & redundant (1+1)
700-watt high-efficiency power supplies

    SuperServer 7045W-NTR+

    4U/tower with 16 FBDIMM for 128GB memory, 6 hot-swap SATA, redundant
(1+1) 800-watt high-efficiency power supplies & 100% cooling redundancy

    SuperWorkstation 7045A-WT

    Low noise, high-performance workstation with 2 PCI-E x16 Gen 2 + 6-pin
power connectors for multiple high-end graphic cards, 6 hot-swap SATA,
865-watt low-noise high-efficiency power supply, and optimized fan-speed

    SuperServer 6015TW-T/INF

    1U Twin server with two DP nodes in 1U; each node supports a PCI-E x16
Gen 2 slot, 8 FBDIMM for 64GB memory, and 2 hot-swap drives; the system also
features a high-efficiency (90%+) 980-watt power supply
    These Supermicro solutions also support Intel(R) Virtualization
Technology for Connectivity including Virtual Machine Device Queues (VMDq) and
Intel(R) I/O Acceleration Technology (I/OAT). These new technologies improve
overall system performance, lower CPU utilization, reduce system latency and
improve networking and I/O throughput in a virtualized environment.
