Today Supermicro announced World Record STAC-A2 performance. Announced at the STAC Summit, Supemicro beat the record with their SYS-1028GR-TR server supporting dual Intel Xeon Haswell EP processors and dual Intel Xeon Phi 7120P coprocessors.
In this slidecast, Einar Rustad from Numascale describes how the company achieved a world-record on the McCalpin STREAM benchmark using their innovative scale-out to scale-up architecture. The benchmark measures sustainable memory bandwidth and the corresponding computation rate for simple vector kernels.
Hardware designs should utilize energy efficient components, airflow optimization techniques, and new cooling techniques to address these challenges. Supermicro provides the largest selection of next geneation x86 based Server solutions to achieve the right balance between design, efficiency, performance, and cost.
