Supermicro Unveils Quad-Core Quad-Processor Servers

    Energy-efficient 1U, 2U & 4U SuperServers deliver breakthrough
    performance-per-watt(1) with new Quad-Core Intel(R) Xeon(R) Processor 7300

    SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 5 /CNW/ -- 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 quad-core,
quad-processor servers.  Supermicro's new 8015C-T, 8025C-3R and 8045C-3R
SuperServers feature a larger memory footprint, improved energy efficiency and
more form factors and CPU SKUs to choose from for better application
optimization compared to previous generation quad-processor servers based on
Intel(R) Xeon processors.
    "With Supermicro's industry-leading high-efficiency Super SSI (Server
System Infrastructure) architectural advances and CPU innovations around power
consumption and memory capacity, 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 based
on the new Intel 7300 (Clarksboro) chipset provide compelling solutions for
the dense rack segment, especially when equipped with Intel's new mainstream
80-watt or low-voltage 50-watt quad-core processors."
    "The Intel(R) Core Microarchitecture combined with Intel's quad core
technology are again delivering record new levels of industry performance and
energy efficiency, this time for four processor systems.  It's exciting to see
Supermicro aggressively taking advantage of the new Quad-Core Intel Xeon
processor 7300 Series across such a broad new product line," said Kirk
Skaugen, vice president, Digital Enterprise Group, Intel. "Intel has designed
the new Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 7300 Series to enhance virtualization
and ease server consolidation, deliver leading performance, and provide
enterprise-level reliability."
    "The Supermicro new quad-processor servers provide more virtual machine
headroom with double the processing cores and double the memory capacity of
previous generation," said David Driggers, CTO of Verari Systems. "With the
new 50-watt processor options, we can continue to enable energy efficient
ultra-dense deployments with large memory footprints and scalability to
empower our customers with greater productivity."
    Based on Supermicro's new X7QCE and X7QC3 serverboards, the 8015C-T,
8025C-3R and 8045C-3R SuperServers all support up to 192GB of fully buffered
DDR2 667 or 533 MHz memory via 24 DIMM slots (when equipped with 8G modules).
Great for virtualization, this expanded 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(1).  Ready
for next-generation 45nm processors, the performance boosting features of
these systems also include four dedicated high-speed interconnects, quad-core
processors with Intel Core microarchitecture, and 64 MB snoop filter.
    Supermicro offers new quad-processor SuperServers in 1U, 2U and 4U form
factors for customers to choose from that support the full range of Xeon 7300
(Caneland) processor SKUs.  With performance optimized 130-watt, rack and
blade optimized 80-watt, and high-density rack and blade optimized 50-watt
SKUs, customers now have more choices than ever before to select the server
that is best for their applications.
