Supermicro Computer debuted a new line of ultra high-performance Hyper-Speed servers. The new 2U and 4U/Tower platforms deliver improved performance for HFT applications by maximizing processing power and precisely tuning hardware and firmware to attain up to 30% lower latency, the company says.
Built on Supermicro's X9DAX series dual-processor (DP) motherboards and SC829BTQ chassis with best-in-class thermals, the Hyper-Speed systems allow the Intel Xeon E5-2600 series processors (up to 150W TDP) to be tuned for higher performance and to run at peak performance in a dense 2U form factor for co-location installations. Systems architecture is designed for maximum airflow, and custom heatsinks provide optimal thermal distribution for mission critical reliability.
Supermicro's HFT-optimized Hyper-Speed platforms feature premium pre-installed CPUs and memory, the company says.
