TAIPEI, Taiwan, Sept. 16 -- Acer announces the support for the latest Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 series processor across its line of high performance Altos servers and Veriton Workstations starting September 2013. With up to 50% more cores per processor, lower thermal design power (TDP), and improved clock speeds, the new line of Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 processors offers extraordinary performance for companies and researchers alike.
“Our professional line up of Altos servers is a cornerstone of our renewed focus on the commercial marketplace,” stated Evis Lin, AVP of Commercial Products and Solutions Management at Acer. “Now with complete support of Intel’s high-performance Xeon E5-2600 v2 CPUs, the Altos line is positioned perfectly to capitalize on channel and data center markets.”
Acer’s Altos line of professional server products offers robust functionality, best-in-class time to market, and scalable performance to meet a wide range of customer demands. Not only performance minded, the Altos servers can be configured based on customer demands with form factors that emphasize density and power savings, as well as other form factors to meet data-intense demands. Acer also offers its own management software, Acer Smart Server Manager, free of charge, enabling customers to simultaneously manage and rollout updates across multiple systems.
This year’s newly announced Veriton P330 F2 and P530 F2 workstations will also support the next generation Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 series processors for amazing computing performance, and power up to 24 cores and up to two GPUs in a single, library-quiet design. Paired with already strong 3D rendering capabilities, the Veriton workstations offer balanced performance so designers can enjoy smooth visuals as well as quick response for simulation, rendering and engineering.
Dylan Larson, Director of Xeon Product Marketing, for Intel’s Data Center and Connected Systems Group, emphasized that, “Acer has been a long-term partner, and we are excited to see the advancements the company is making in the commercial space. Going beyond hardware, Acer’s new focus on solutions development and flexible business models are powerful additions to the Xeon product line and the customers they serve.”
