Supermicro Advances Twin Technology with Four Nehalem DP Servers in 2U

BEIJING, Apr. 8 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

    New Nehalem 2U Twin2 ('Twin Squared') SuperServers Deliver Industry's Best

              Performance-per-Watt and Performance-per-Dollar    

    Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMCI), a leader in

application-optimized, high-performance server solutions, is showcasing a 2U

Twin2 SuperServer with four hot-pluggable computing nodes in a 2U chassis and

a multi-GPU SuperWorkstation today at IDF Beijing 2009, Beijing International

Convention Center (BICC), booth GE014. These new systems are optimized to

fully leverage the benefits of the Intel(R) Xeon(R) Processor 5500 (Nehalem)

Series to deliver the best performance-per-watt and performance-per-dollar in

the industry. Compared to previous generation Xeon platforms, Nehalem

features more than double the CPU, triple the memory and triple the I/O

bandwidth to deliver the largest increase in performance in the history of

Intel's Xeon product line.

    "Building on our innovative 1U Twin(TM) server technology, Supermicro's

high-density 2U Twin2 architecture achieves breakthrough x86 server

performance-per-watt (375 GFLOPS/kW*) and performance-per-dollar while

facilitating easy maintenance," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of

Supermicro. "With optimized 93%+* high-efficiency power supplies, newly

designed CPU cooling components and air channels, and the most updated

motherboard voltage regulator module (VRM) designs, Supermicro 2U Twin2

servers deliver the best performance-per-watt of any server solution

available in today's x86 server market."

    "The new Intel(R) Xeon(R) Processor 5500 series provides a foundation for

Supermicro to deliver its customers new levels of system intelligence, with

the processor's ability to dynamically optimize itself to meet the

performance and energy efficiency requirements of a given workload and

customer environment," said Kirk Skaugen, vice president and general manager

of Intel's Server Platforms Group. "Intel is thrilled with the collaboration

and innovation we've seen from Supermicro around this new breakthrough in

intelligent processing."

    Based on the Intel(R) 5520 (Tylersburg) chipset, Supermicro Nehalem

platforms support up to 144GB DDR3 memory in 18 DIMM slots. Several new

high-performance Supermicro platforms feature dual IOH-36D controller chips

to support up to 72 PCI-Express 2.0 links for unprecedented I/O capacity and

performance (such as 4 x16 PCI-E Gen2 slots for high-end nVidia/ATI GPU

applications) with optional SAS 2.0 for a 6 Gb/s per port transfer rate.
