Supermicro Delivers Complete Multi-Core Intel Xeon Server Product Line

Supermicro has started to ship Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor-based serverboards and server systems. The company has introduced more than ten models of dual-core server systems and motherboards based on the existing Intel E7520 chipset to ensure maximum scalability and compatibility between single-core and dual-core platforms. (Since Intel Paxville official launch date is in the coming week, shipping platforms from Supermicro are currently for NDA customer sampling purposes only.)

The SuperServer 6014P-32(R) is a redundant-powered 1U DP dual-core Xeon server with the following specifications: up to 16GB of ECC Reg. DDR2-400 memory, two universal slots that can support either PCI-X-133/100 or PCI-Express x8 expansion, eight SAS/SATA ports (supporting four internal hard drives and over 100 external hard drives for JBOD), dual gigabit Ethernet ports, fan speed control, and an IPMI 2.0 socket with a 3rd LAN option for server management.


The SS6014H-32 is a standard 1U server that supports many of the same features as the SS6014P-32R and two universal expansion slots that support up to two PCI-Express x8 or two PCI-X-133/100 cards. For convertible 4U/tower systems, the SuperServer 7044H-32(R) shares a similar design along with the following additional features: 8 internal SAS drive support, two PCI-Express x8, 3 PCI-X-133/100, and one legacy PCI slot. Meanwhile, the SS6024H-32(R) is a 2U server powered by the Super X6DH3-G2 serverboard, and it supports six internal SAS drives.


SCSI users are offered the 2U SS6024H-82+ and the 4U SS7044H-82+ servers, while the SS6014H-i+ is a 1U server that supports IDE/SATA hard drives. For dual-core Xeon workstations based on the Intel 7525 chipset, the SW7044A-32 supports eight internal SAS drives while the SW7044A-i2+ supports IDE/SATA drives. Both of these workstations feature Supermicro's SuperQuiet power supply and fan operation.


For system builders and channel partners, Supermicro introduces several 64-bit dual-core Xeon serverboard solutions customized for different kinds of users. Power users will like the high-end X6DH3-G2 serverboard. Its standard features include PCI-Express expansions, ECC Reg. DDRII memory support, dual gigabit connectivity, IPMI management option, and more. The core of this board is the Adaptec 8-port SAS controller supporting 3Gb/s storage access and allowing backward compatibility with parallel SCSI software and middleware to protect existing SCSI investments and to lower transition risks.

Rackmount server solution users are offered X6DHR-3G2 and the X6DHP-3G2. Both serverboards are optimized for Supermicro's 1U chassis, and they retain all the features of the high-end X6DH3-G2 plus two universal PCI-Express slots that allow users to choose PCI-Express or PCI-X expansion cards depending on their applications. On the cost-effective front, the X6DVA-4G2 and X6DVA-EG2 feature the E7320 chipset and single-channel SCSI for more cost conscious users.

On the workstation front, Supermicro has the X6DA3-G2 and the X6DAi-G2 for graphics intensive applications. Furthermore, the X6DH8-G2+, X6DHE-G2+, X6DHi-G2, X6DHR-EG2, X6DHR-8G2+ and X6DHR-iG2+ are high performance dual-core Xeon-optimized serverboards with SCSI, SATA or IDE support.
