During GTC 2012, Supermicro showcased its latest graphics processing unit (GPU) enabled X9 server and workstation solutions.
Supermicro's new GPU solutions support Intel Xeon E5-2600 processors and feature memory capacity up to 256 GB for servers and 512 GB in workstations, higher performance I/O and connectivity with PCI-E 3.0, 10GbE and 4x QDR (40Gb) InfiniBand support (GPU SuperBlade), as well as innovative energy efficient power saving technologies.
Supermicro X9 solutions feature the highest density GPU computing available in today's market. The non-blocking architecture supports 4 GPUs per 1U in a standard, short depth 32” rack chassis. The SuperBlade can fit 30 GPUs in 7U-. Combined with the latest GPUs based on NVIDIA Kepler architecture, the X9 platform offers industry professionals one of the most powerful, accelerated and ‘green’ computing solutions available on the market.
Supermicro's new X9 solutions include the 1027GR-TQF, 2027GR-TRF, SBI-7127RG and 7047GR-TRF systems. The 1027GR-TQF offering up to 4 double-width GPUs in 1U for maximum compute density in a compact 32” short depth, standard rack mount format. The 2U 2027GR-TRF supports up to 6 GPUs and is ideal for scalable, high performance computing clusters in scientific research fields. In addition, there is a 2027GR-TRFT model available supporting dual-port 10GBase-T for increased bandwidth and reduced latency. The GPU SuperBlade SBI-7127RG packs on of the industry’s highest compute density of 30 GPUs in 7U delivering ultimate processing performance, for applications such as oil and gas exploration.
The 7047GR-TRF is Supermicro’s latest high-end, enterprise-class X9 SuperWorkstation, with NVIDIA Maximus certification. This system accelerates design and visualization tasks with an NVIDIA Quadro GPU, while providing dedicated processing power for simultaneous compute intensive tasks such as simulation and rendering with up to four NVIDIA Tesla C2075 GPUs. The upcoming 7047GR-TPRF SuperWorkstation supports passively cooled GPUs making it ideal for high performance trading (HPT) applications. X9 systems feature dual Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 family processors, maximized memory and non-blocking native PCI-E 3.0 configurations along with redundant Platinum level high-efficiency (94%+) power supplies.
