Super Micro Computer has announced a new, better, faster and greener X13 server portfolio. The portfolio includes more than fifteen families of optimized systems targeting AI, HPC, cloud computing, media, enterprise and 5G/Telco/Edge workloads.
The better, faster and greener systems are based on the all-new scalable 4th generation Intel Xeon processors (formerly codenamed Sapphire Rapids). The systems deliver up to 60% better optimized performance and improved security. In addition, the systems include options for high ambient temperatures and liquid cooling, which reduce environmental impact and operating costs.
“The Supermicro portfolio, consisting of more than fifteen X13 server families, consists of systems with exceptional performance, features and cost-optimized designs for specific data center and intelligent edge workloads,” said Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. subsystem upgraded with up to 2X better memory performance and 2X better I/O bandwidth. Power and cooling options have also been expanded to support 350W CPUs and up to 700W GPUs. In addition, we have added both support for high ambient temperatures and liquid cooling so that the new portfolio can reduce environmental impact and improve TCO.”
The engines increase efficiency and reduce CPU load for many critical workloads in today’s data centers. The systems include Intel Advanced Matrix Extensions (Intel AMX) to accelerate deep learning inference and training performance. Intel Data Streaming Accelerator (Intel DSA) helps reduce CPU overhead for storage, networking, and data-intensive tasks. In addition, the system also includes Intel QuickAssist Technology (QAT), for hardware offloading of popular cryptography and data compression/decompression algorithms. Intel® AVX for vRAN can also improve performance and reduce power consumption for vRAN workloads.
“The new scalable 4th generation Intel Xeon processors are designed to deliver a high-performance data infrastructure from the cloud, to the network and to the intelligent edge,” said Lisa Spelman, corporate vice president and general manager, Intel Xeon Products. have worked with Supermicro for nearly thirty years to integrate Intel processors into their systems, and we are excited to see their innovative architecture and system design unleash the full potential of our 4th generation Intel Xeon processors.”
Better – The new Supermicro X13 systems represent the next generation of data center infrastructure and are designed from the ground up following Supermicro’s Building Block Solutions approach. The systems deliver maximum performance and efficiency while offering a high degree of flexibility to meet customers’ specific workloads and scale. Supermicro X13 systems can be powered by one, two, four or eight scalable 4th generation Intel Xeon processors. Using server management based on open standards, Supermicro servers can be seamlessly integrated into existing IT environments.
Faster – Supermicro X13 systems are based on powerful scalable 4th generation Intel Xeon processors and the Intel Xeon CPU Max series of up to 350 W. X13 systems also support next-generation industrial technologies.
Greener – Despite such increases in power and performance, the advanced thermal architecture and optimized airflow allow the Supermicro X13 systems to operate in environments with high ambient temperatures of up to 40°C (104°F). Liquid cooling options are also available, reducing OPEX by up to 40% compared to standard air conditioning. Supermicro’s architecture for multi-node systems uses shared cooling and power to reduce power and resource consumption, lowering both TCO and TCE. In addition, the proprietary design of Titanium Level power supplies improves operating efficiency. This makes it possible to realistically reduce a data center’s PUE from an industry average of 1.60 to a range of 1.05.
