Super Micro Computer Inc. has introduced what it terms the fastest 1U server on the planet this week at Computex. As the first 1U multi-GPU (graphics processing unit) system with a fully non-blocking architecture, Supermicro’s new 2-Teraflop SuperServer 6016T-GF Series features dual Nehalem processors and two Gen2 PCI-Express x16 interfaces to support two double-width GPUs.
“Our 6016T-GF SuperServers are by far the fastest 1U servers in the world,” said Charles Liang, CEO and President of Supermicro. “Featuring advancements such as multiple x16 non-blocking native Gen2 PCI-Express connectivity, highly reliable thermal optimization, and industry-leading power efficiency, Supermicro has developed the world’s first truly optimized GPU-based servers.”
“The importance of GPU Computing in both research and enterprise is growing rapidly,” said Andy Keane, general manager, GPU Computing, NVIDIA. “Supermicro’s new Tesla-based 1U server is tightly integrated to provide the highest possible compute density and a uniform building block for large-scale GPU Computing deployments.”
The SuperServer 6016T-GF Series is the first of an entire family of GPU-based systems created to meet the requirements of the emerging high-performance, highly-parallel computing segment. By the end of June, Supermicro will launch a 4U/tower system that supports four double-width GPUs. These platforms feature Supermicro’s new Gold level (93 percent efficiency) power subsystems and deliver breakthrough performance-per-watt.
