Platinum DXG Release (Haswell-EP)
30 September 2014

For the past two and half years (and counting) we have been well served by the Platinum DXR platform (Dual Xeon Romley). This month marks the start of a transition to the latest platform, Platinum DXG, based on the Intel Grantley platform for dual socket Xeon servers and workstations. The Platinum DXG consists of the Haswell-EP processor (the Intel E5-2600 V3 series introduced in July) and the Wellsburg chipset (Intel C612 platform controller hub).

The new motherboard will take the new LGA 2011-3 socket Xeon E5-26xx V3 processors and provide Quad Channel interleaved DDR4-2133 memory performance per CPU via 16 DIMM sockets. The new processors scale to 18-cores per socket (that is, up to 72 logical CPUs per system) and will support up to 1TB of main ECC memory. Overall the improvements are more processing power, faster memory, support for native USB 3.0 and 10 SATA 6Gbps ports onboard.
