 SAN JOSE: Super Micro Computer has recently announced the launch of an optimized selection of server, workstation and blade solutions to support the new generation Intel Xeon Processor 5600/3600 Series.


These solutions boost performance by 60 percent as compared to the previous generation of Nehalem solutions.

Featuring power supplies efficiently in the industry and well-tuned cooling subsystems and serverboard designs, Super Micro's latest solutions offer good performance.

“With Super Micro's innovative architecture and resource sharing, our comprehensive selection of products optimized for the new generation six-core Xeon processors deliver not only the best performance-per-watt but also performance-per-dollar while offering the highest densities in the industry,” said Charles Liang, CEO and President, Super Micro.


“For example, our new TwinBlade doubles the number of dual-processor compute nodes to 20 per 7U, for an incredibly dense and cost-effective 0.35U per node. This breakthrough blade design leverages our successful twin architecture to provide optimal performance, density and value,” he added.

“The new Intel Xeon Processor 5600/3600 series provides an exciting foundation for Super Micro to deliver unprecedented new levels of intelligent performance, energy efficiency, and security,” commented Kirk Skaugen, VP and GM—Datacenter Group, Intel. “Intel is excited to see the innovation Super Micro is bringing customers around these new Intel technologies,” he added. For maximum density and computational performance, Super Micro's TwinBlade, based on the SBI-7226T-T2 blade, supports up to 20 dual-socket server blades per 7U enclosure. Combined with dual 40Gb/s InfiniBand, FCoE or10GbE switches and dual 1/10GbE switches in one 7U enclosure, TwinBlade provides the highest performing I/O throughput and scalability in the industry and is a superb solution for high-performance computing (HPC), datacenter, enterprise and cloud computing environments, especially when powered by the new generation six-core Xeon processors. Super Micro's new server and workstation system and motherboard platforms support the entire range of new six-core Intel Xeon Processor 5600/3600 Series, including the highest performance 130 Watt SKUs.

Consistent with the company's commitment to green computing, these new solutions support both standard 1.5V DDR3 memory modules and low-voltage 1.35V modules. Super Micro Platinum-level power supplies with PM-Bus come standard on most of these new systems.

Super Micro's serverboards deliver optimum performance-per-dollar and robust remote management. These new platforms offer onboard IPMI 2.0 with media and KVM-over-LAN support as well as 10Gb Ethernet, high-performance 40Gb/s QDR and cost-effective DDR onboard InfiniBand versions for many of its serverboards, such as the X8DTT series for its popular multi-node 1U Twin(TM), 2U Twin and 2U Twin(2) servers. Super Micro Server Building Block Solutions offer exceptional flexibility and feature advantages.
