Supermicro Unveils GPU SuperBlade at SC10
20 GPUs and Two QDR IB Switches in 7U
SC10, New Orleans, Louisiana, November 15, 2010
- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), the global leader in
server technology innovation and green computing, is exhibiting an
impressive selection of GPU-optimized supercomputing servers
at the SuperComputing 2010 (SC10) Conference held at the Ernest N.
Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, November 15-18, including a
SuperBlade® that supports 20 GPUs in a single 7U blade enclosure.
"As the leader in GPU and Twin
supercomputing system architectures, Supermicro is introducing an
unprecedented high-density GPU SuperBlade, which supports two NVIDIA
Tesla M2050/M2070 GPU cards with non-blocking native Gen2 PCI-Express
x16 connections per node," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of
Supermicro. "Compared to other GPU-enabled blade solutions, our GPU SuperBlade
provides more than double the number of GPUs per 1U of rack space, and
it is perfect for high-performance computing (HPC) applications in
fields like medical imaging, oil and gas exploration, quantum chemistry,
financial simulation, genomics and astrophysics."
Supermicro's new SuperBlade system enables up to 120 of the highest
performing Fermi GPUs plus 120 of the latest Intel® Xeon® 5600 series
processors to be deployed in a standard 42U rack. Equipped with dual IOH
chips and dual 40Gb/s QDR IB HCA per blade, this GPU SuperBlade
solution delivers maximum performance with the best CPU to GPU balance
and optimized I/O.
Supermicro's GPU supercomputing servers
are optimized for the latest NVIDIA M2070 and C2070 Fermi GPU cards with
double the onboard memory of the M2050 and C2050 cards. The 1U SuperServer 6016GT-TF-FM207 provides up to 1 TeraFLOPS of double precision performance, and the SuperServer 7046GT-TRF-FC407
comes loaded with four double-width NVIDIA Fermi C2070 GPU cards and
supports three additional PCI-E add-on cards for high-bandwidth I/O.
The company's 2U Twin system that supports two hot-pluggable
dual-processor (DP) compute nodes, two GPU cards, 24 hot-swap SAS2/SATA
drives, onboard 40Gb/s InfiniBand, and redundant power.
Considered among the fastest 1U servers
in the world, Supermicro's 6016GT-TF-FM207 serves as a uniform building
block for large-scale deployments. Optimized for performance and
reliability, the 6016GT-TF-FM207 supports dual Intel® Xeon® 5600/5500
series processors and features two NVIDIA Fermi M2070 GPU cards via two
Gen2 PCI-Express x16 connections. Also in a 1U form factor, Supermicro's
1022GG-TF server not only supports two twelve-core AMD Opteron™ 6100
Series processors and two double-width GPU cards, but also can support
two 40Gb/s QDR InfiniBand networking cards. In addition, Supermicro's
next-generation GPU-optimized supercomputing servers are coming soon.
Suitable for both cluster configurations
and personal supercomputing, the 7046GT-TRF-FC407 is a 4U system housed
in Supermicro's new rackmount convertible tower chassis, the
SC747TQ-R1400. This chassis supports up to 11 full-height, full-length
expansion cards, eight hot-swap 3.5" SAS/SATA drives, and special design
features that bolster graphics and computationally intensive
