Super Micro has announced its latest installment of uni-processor platforms designed around the Intel 3400 [Lynnfield] processor series. The new platforms will support up to 32GB of DDR3 memory, PCI Express 2.0, optional on-board SAS controllers and IPMI 2.0 remote management.
These new platforms can boost performance more than 50% compared to the previous generation of single-processor server platforms,” said Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. “By combining our high-efficiency Gold Level (up to 93%) power supplies and optimized cooling systems with 90%-efficient VRMs, these new UP SuperServers can sharply reduce power consumption and total cost of ownership (TCO).””With today’s launch of the 1U SuperServers powered by the Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor 3400 series, Supermicro is offering a compelling solution to meet customer’s needs,” said Boyd Davis, General Manager of Marketing in Intel’s Server Platforms Group. “Based on Intel’s highly integrated new two-chip solution, these server platforms boost performance and consume less power, so customers get more and pay less in energy costs.”
In addition to the standard 1U server offerings, Super Micro is also introducing a uni-processor workstation, the mini-tower SuperServer 5036I-IF. If you’re interesting in grabbing more info, check out Super Micro’s product page of uni-processor platforms here.
