Supermicro has announced their latest addition to their GPU computing and graphics platforms. The new 704GT-TRF SuperWorkstations are based on Intel Xeon 5500 [Nehalem] core processors and support up to four NVIDIA Tesla C1060 GPUs. They also support up to three additional PCI-e add-on cards for additional expansion. In order to keep such a beast fueled, they feature redundant Gold Level [93%+ efficiency] 1400-watt power supplies.
Extending our leadership in GPU computing system architectures, the new 7046GT-TRF features multiple x16 non-blocking native Gen2 PCI-Express connectivity, Supermicro’s first system to support four double-width GPUs,” said Charles Liang, CEO and President of Supermicro. “Equipped with Supermicro’s patented thermal design, and industry-leading power efficiency, these highly parallel, multi-GPU systems are optimized for a wide range of graphics and computationally intensive applications in fields like medical imaging, oil and gas exploration, quantum chemistry, financial simulation, genomics and astrophysics.”
The new machine is housed in a 4U rackmount convertible tower chassis [SC747TQ-R1400]. The new chassis supports up to 11 full height, full length expansion cards and eight hot-swappable 3.5″ SAS/SATA drives. For more info, read the full release here.
