Supermicro Expands 1S Servers w/ 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Ice Lake-SP

Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI), a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, networking solutions, and green computing technology, is announcing an expanded portfolio of single-processor systems based on the new  Intel® Xeon® E-2300 and 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors. These new systems support a wide range of applications in growing vertical markets. As a result, customers can optimize the exact configuration needed for their applications spanning entry-level edge servers to data center-class systems. 

With Intel Xeon E-2300 processors, the MicroBlade and MicroCloud support applications that require a high-density computing infrastructure, including content streaming, EDA, interactive gaming, and bare-metal cloud instances. Enterprises can also benefit from rackmount systems based on this new processor family, with increased I/O and security features making these systems ideal for appliances and for security applications.

New single-socket 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor-based systems such as the 6U SuperBlade® are ideal for high-density multi-node applications. The E403 wall-mount edge server for telco environments leverages the higher core counts, greater memory capacity, and faster I/O required to deliver high performance at optimized price points.

Our multi-node solutions and high-volume rackmount systems enable a new class of computing for enterprises and cloud providers, allowing for a new generation of applications that optimize business performance and TCO. We are delivering an expanded portfolio of single-processor application-optimized systems that will provide exactly the best performance and efficiency for targeted workloads, including telco, edge, storage, security, AI inferencing, and bare-metal provisioning.

Charles Liang, president, and CEO of Supermicro

Supermicro’s new single-socket systems deliver the performance and capabilities to power an expanded set of workloads in the data center and bring data center-class performance to the Edge.  These new systems feature PCI-E 4.0 I/O, which removes bottlenecks and speeds up applications compared to systems with earlier generations of processors. They also now include support for Intel’s SGX security features. The new single-socket systems are available in various form factors, including multi-node servers, rackmount servers, and workstations.

Supermicro is consistently the first to market with new CPUs from Intel. The new 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors and the Intel Xeon E-2300 based products clearly demonstrate our joint commitment to organizations of all sizes when it comes to digital transformation. We can meet the needs from the edge to the data center with a range of optimized products.

Single-socket 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processor-based systems support up to 16 DIMM slots, enabling up to 4TB of DRAM or 6TB of DRAM + Intel® Optane® PMem – this memory capacity for single-socket systems is unprecedented.  The Intel Xeon E-2300 processor-based systems deliver essential server performance for small businesses with up to 8 cores and 128 GB of DDR4 memory at 95 Watts TDP.

Servers from Supermicro that are optimized for single-socket applications incorporating 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors include:

  • SuperBlade – Highest-density multi-node systems
  • 5G/Edge – Configurable mobile networks and data center-class computing at the Edge
  • Mainstream – Versatile rackmount servers for enterprise applications
  • WIO – I/O optimized rackmount servers
  • Storage – Enterprise-optimized storage systems

In addition, the new Supermicro servers that use the Intel® Xeon® E-2300 include:

  • MicroBlade – Versatile and scalable multi-node solutions
  • MicroCloud – High-density systems for dedicated or scalable cloud hosting
  • WIO – Cost-effective I/O optimized rackmount servers
  • Mainstream – Entry-level enterprise rackmount servers
