SAN DIEGO, Calif., June 5 -- Cirrascale Corporation, a premier developer of build-to-order, independent blade-based computing and storage infrastructure for conventional and modular data centers, announced its support for the 4th generation Intel Core and Intel Xeon Processor E3-1200 v3 product family based on “Haswell” microarchitecture, within its latest blade-based compute and rackmount product lines specifically aimed at High Performance Computing, content creation, cloud gaming and cloud computing environments.
With this announcement, Cirrascale is releasing the VB1600 series blade-based compute servers and RM1600 series rackmount servers which feature these latest generation of Intel Core and Intel Xeon processors. The 4th generation Intel Core and Intel Xeon Processor E3-1200 v3 processors are expected to provide up to 20% improvement in performance at the same power levels as the 3rd generation processors, and include the much improved Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX2). Additionally, Intel also released information regarding its updated graphics engine, Intel Iris Pro Graphics, which can produce two times the performance over 3rd generation graphics processors.
“Intel’s 4th generation Intel Core and Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3 processors are positioned to provide customers with stunning performance at exceptionally low power requirements,” said David Driggers, CEO, Cirrascale Corporation. “Our customers and licensed partners that are currently utilizing our blade-based compute and rackmount servers with 3rd generation processors have been waiting patiently for this optimized chipset to become available. We’ve put together some innovative designs that enable increased performance and flexibility for high-powered users such as content creators and cloud gaming partners.”
“The new Intel Xeon processors E3-1200 v3 series offers high performance with the improved energy efficiency developers need to meet a broad range of compute requirements—from small business to dense designs to media processing in the cloud,” said Dylan Larson, Director of Xeon Platform Marketing, Intel Datacenter and Connected Systems Group.
The Cirrascale VB1600 Series blade-based compute servers and RM1600 Series rackmount servers are immediately available to order and will be shipping subject to the announced component availability. Licensing opportunities for the Cirrascale VB1600 Series and RM1600 Series are also available immediately to both customers and partners.
