Super Micro Computer, Inc. has launched its first wave of servers optimized for the new Socket C32 AMD Opteron 4100 Series processors (formerly code-named “Lisbon”).
This launch includes Supermicro‘s new 1U Twin and 2U Twin2 systems with two dual-processor (DP) computing nodes per 1U sharing 920-watt Platinum-certified (94%+ efficiency) Supermicro power supplies and a new short-depth, cost-effective, single-processor 1U server with a Gold Level efficiency power supply.
”The low energy draw of these new servers, which can be loaded with 35-watt six-core Opteron CPUs that consume only 5.8 watts per core, makes them ideal solutions for data centers and IT departments that want to minimize their power budgets,” says Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. “Our Twin system architecture and unique resource-sharing designs enable Supermicro systems to deliver exceptional performance-per-watt and performance-per-dollar, and that is further enhanced with the new generation Socket C32 AMD Opteron processors. These new 2U Twin2 systems feature four DP server nodes in 2U and optional 40Gb/s QDR InfiniBand connectivity.”
The short-depth 1012C-MRF server is powered by the Supermicro H8SCM-F single-processor serverboard. With a depth of 14.5 in., this server features one PCI-E 2.0 slot, two internal SATA drive bays, two GbE ports and one dedicated LAN port for IPMI 2.0 remote system management. It featuries a 350-watt Gold Level (93%+ efficiency) Supermicro power supply.
The 2022TC-BIBQRF/BTRF and 1022TC-IBQF/TF are based on Supermicro’s Twin system architecture, which enables two dual-processor (DP) server nodes per 1U. Each node features 12 DIMMs to support up to 128GB DDR3 memory, a PCI-E 2.0 x16 expansion slot, dual GbE ports and one dedicated LAN port for IPMI 2.0 remote system management, and two 3.5-in. hot-swap SATA drive bays. The multiple DP nodes share the 920-watt Platinum Level (94%+ efficiency) Supermicro power supplies. While the 2022TC-BTRF and 1022TC-TF are cost-optimized solutions, the 2022TC-BIBQRF and 1022TC-IBQF provide onboard 40Gb/s QDR InfiniBand ports for high-speed connectivity.
The same series of AMD processors are supported by these Supermicro UP and DP servers. This provides customers with the flexibility to move processors between platforms as their needs change over time.
