1,440 processor cores per 42U rack with 4-Way SuperBlade optimized for Six-Core AMD Opteron Processors, QDR InfiniBand, Gold Level power efficiency
HAMBURG, Germany, June 23 -- Super Micro Computer, Inc., a leader in application-optimized, high performance server solutions, is showcasing the world's densest and greenest HPC solutions optimized for the new Six-Core AMD Opteron processors (code-named "Istanbul") this week at International SuperComputing 2009 (booth 310). Rackmount servers on display include 1U Twin and 4-way 1U servers which support 24 processing cores in a 1U form factor as well as the new 2U Twin2 with four hot-pluggable DP computing nodes which supports 48 processor cores. For those seeking even higher compute density, Supermicro's 4-way SuperBlade features 240 processor cores in 7U.
"Both our 4-way Six-Core SuperBlade and 2U Twin2 servers are available with QDR 40 Gigabit per second InfiniBand, hot-pluggable features and high-efficiency 93 percent+ Gold Level power supplies for best energy efficiency, costs and space requirements, while delivering maximum computing power per rack," said Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. "When loaded with Istanbul processors, our SBA-7141M-T blade enables 1,440 processor cores and 7.68 terabytes of memory in a 42U rack, making it the densest solution available."
"AMD is pleased to work with Supermicro to deliver the performance, scalability and overall efficiency HPC customers demand across a variety of workloads," said Patrick Patla, vice president and general manager, Server and Workstation division, AMD (NYSE: AMD). "Building on the success of AMD's Direct Connect architecture, the performance and feature enhancements of the Six-Core AMD Opteron processor, particularly HyperTransport technology HT assist for superior memory throughput, make Supermicro's server and blade platforms even more beneficial to the HPC market."
In addition to the many performance enhancements in Six-Core AMD Opteron processors, Supermicro offers Six-Core A+ solutions with the following high-performance design features:
Supermicro's full range of Six-Core A+ solutions includes both DP and 4-way servers and workstations in 1U, 2U, 4U, tower, and blade form factors with PCI-e Gen2 platforms ready.
