Supermicro's motherboards and server systems based on the 8/6/4-Core AMD Opteron™ 4000 series processors (Socket C32) are optimized for power efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Utilizing the new AMD SR56xx / SP5100 chipset, these Supermicro solutions boost I/O performance with PCI-Express 2.0 to double throughput, increase performance and reduce power with 3.2 GHz HyperTransport (HT3) links and DDR3 memory, and also reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) with high levels of integration and energy-efficient components.
Supermicro solutions based on this platform include motherboards and new 1U and 2U Twin²® systems with two dual-processor (DP) computing nodes per 1U sharing 920-watt Platinum Level (94%+) power supplies and a new short-depth, single-processor 1U server.
Supermicro solutions using the AMD Opteron™ 4000 series processors with the world's lowest power-per-core* and SR56xx / SP5100 chipset are ideal for high volume file & print email, virtualization, web, cloud computing and HPC applications. They deliver exceptional value for the volume 2P and value 1P market segments.
Supermicro's AMD Opteron™ 4000 series processor-based UP and DP server systems incorporate many important high-efficiency and cost-effective design features without sacrificing performance:
- Platinum Level and Gold Level high-efficiency power supplies with optimized cooling
