<p><location>PORTLAND</location>, Ore., <chron>Nov. 16</chron> /CNW/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMCI), a leader in application-optimized, high-performance server solutions, is demonstrating its latest high-performance computing (HPC) server and blade solutions this week at SuperComputing 2009 in the Oregon Convention Center, booth 2355.  These solutions, based on the new AMD SR56xx/SP5100 chipset and optimized for Six-Core AMD Opteron(TM) processors, boost performance with PCI Express 2.0 to double I/O throughput and support 40Gb/s QDR InfiniBand for high-bandwidth connectivity.</p>
<p/>
<p>"Supermicro's new quad-processor (MP) and dual-processor (DP) A+ server and blade solutions deliver superior performance, density and efficiency to the HPC and datacenter markets," said <person>Charles Liang</person>, president and CEO of Supermicro. "In addition to PCI Express 2.0 and QDR InfiniBand interfaces, our high-quality Server Building Block Solutions feature extremely high efficiency (93%+) Gold Level power supplies and deliver advanced features like 6Gb/s SAS 2.0 storage, onboard IPMI 2.0 remote management, redundant power and cooling subsystems, as well as optimization for GPU computing."</p>
<p/>
<p>"We selected Supermicro because of their cutting-edge blade technology in the supercomputing space," said Lennart Johnsson, Professor, School of Computer Science and Communications and Director of PDC at KTH and a <person>Hugh Roy</person> and Lillie Cranz Cullen Distinguished Professor of Computer Science, Mathematics and Electrical and Computer Engineering and Director of the Texas Learning and Computation Center, University of <location>Houston</location>. "Supermicro's leading power efficiency, high density, design along with AMD's latest six-core CPU and PCIe Gen 2 chipset and the power management features offered at various levels were key deciding factors due to our environmental and cost concerns; concerns that are shared by PRACE partners. This new AMD technology-based 4-way SuperBlade® helps us control our power and cooling costs compared to traditional server technology, providing a benefit for the research communities of PRACE and others."</p>
<p/>
<p>"With their continued innovation around AMD server platform technology, Supermicro is supplying the HPC and datacenter market with innovative, high-end solutions that deliver the cost and power efficiencies these customers need today," said Patrick Patla, Vice President and General Manager, Server/Workstation and Embedded division, AMD (NYSE:   AMD).  "AMD's industry-defining multi-core processor technology, now combined with an advanced chipset, provides customers with an optimized platform to help lower energy consumption, while still addressing the compute-intensive demands of the high-performance market."</p>
