Super Micro Computer, Inc. has launched its second generation GPU servers optimized for the new NVIDIA Tesla 20-series GPUs.
The product line includes a 1U server, a 4U/tower that supports four NVIDIA Tesla GPUs along with three additional PCI-e cards for high-bandwidth I/O, and a 2U Twin server that supports two hot-pluggable GPU nodes with redundant power.
“Our dual-GPU 1U SuperServer now delivers up to 1 TeraFLOPS double-precision performance, making it suitable for a far wider range of high-performance computing applications where more complex data calculations can be performed faster,” says Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro.
“Supermicro systems optimized for the new NVIDIA Tesla M2050 GPU computing module enable seamless integration of GPUs into large, scale-out deployments in commercial and scientific computing data centers,” says Andy Keane, general manager, Tesla business at NVIDIA. “Servers with Tesla GPUs provide maximum compute-density for the data center, delivering the same compute performance as a CPU-only cluster at a tenth the cost and a twentieth the power consumption with the ability to scale to thousands of nodes.”
Supermicro’s new GPU product line features both Intel Xeon 5600 Series (Westmere) processors as well as AMD Opteron 6100 Series (Socket G34) processors. These systems also feature remote monitoring and management capabilities.
