Alright, so we’ve got some new servers from a company that’s all about AI, cloud, storage, and 5G/edge. What’s cool about these servers is that they come with performance gains and power efficiency options. Supermicro, Inc. claims that these rack scale air and liquid cooled solutions are all about faster time to delivery, improved quality, optimized performance, and efficiency. And get this, they’ve got systems delivering a 67% generation-over-generation performance boost in AI benchmarks and an average performance gain of 87% over 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Processor-based Systems. Crazy, right? And these are just a few highlights of the new X13 family of workload-optimized servers supporting the new 5th Gen Intel Xeon processors (formerly codenamed Emerald Rapids).
I mean, these X13 servers are coming in hot with some serious GPU servers for Generative AI, throughput and latency-optimized E3.S Petascale servers, cost-effective high-density Enterprise and Simply Double storage servers for large-scale object storage, and a new 4-node SuperEdge systems with enhanced storage capacity. It doesn’t stop there, though. Supermicro is talking about supporting up to 100kW per rack and a global manufacturing capacity of 4,000 racks per month with these servers. They’re using rack-scale liquid cooling solutions, claiming it can deliver Green Computing TCO savings of up to 51% on data center electricity costs.
So when it comes to improvements in performance and efficiency, these new X13 systems are optimized, energy-efficient, and incorporate improved manageability and security, supporting open industry standards, and are rack-scale optimized. These servers are also supporting the new 5th Gen Intel Xeon processors, bringing increased performance-per-watt, up to 128 cores and 160 PCIe lanes in a single server.
If you’re into AI and metaverse, you’re going to be all over these servers. And let’s not forget about other features like support for multiple airflow cooling zones for maximum CPU and GPU performance, and enhanced security features. Supermicro even has a JumpStart program that allows qualified customers to perform workload validation with the new Supermicro systems.
In summary, these new servers from Supermicro are aimed at delivering some serious performance and efficiency upgrades while optimizing for AI, Cloud, Storage, and Edge applications. So buckle up, folks, because we’re entering a new era of tech with these bad boys.
