The more cores the better!
The server board has four modules, each of which can carry two upcoming 10-core Xeon E7 CPUs. Intel's new 32nm Westmere EX will debut as E7-2800 series (two sockets), E7-4800 series (four sockets) as well as E7-8800 series (eight sockets) with six, eight and ten cores as well as clock speeds ranging from 1.73 to 2.4 GHz.
The 5086B-TRF has also room for up to four Nvidia Tesla GPGPU cards as well as 16 DDR3 memory slots for each memory slot for a maximum of 1 TB, the manufacturer said. Supermicro uses a PSU with 2800 watts capacity, but wants to offer the option of a 3200 watt unit in future.
Prices have not been announced.
