Supermicro announces future support and upcoming early access for 5th Gen Intel® Xeon® processors on the complete family of X13 servers
Supermicro’s Advanced GPU Systems for Generative AI Applications with Dual 5th Gen Intel Xeon Processors Will Take Advantage of the Increased Number of Cores, Performance, and Performance Per Watt in The Same Power Envelope
Supermicro is announcing future support for the upcoming 5th Gen Intel Xeon processors. In addition, Supermicro will soon offer early shipping and free remote early access testing of the new Systems via its JumpStart Program for qualified customers. The Supermicro 8x GPU optimised servers, the SuperBlade® servers, and the Hyper Series will soon be ready for customers to test their workloads on the new CPU.
“Supermicro’s range of Generative High-Performance AI systems, including recently launched GPUs, continues to lead the industry in AI offerings with its broad range of X13 family of servers designed for various workloads, from the edge to the cloud,” said Charles Liang, president, and CEO, Supermicro. “Our support for the upcoming 5th Gen Intel Xeon processors, with more cores, an increased performance per watt, and the latest DDR5-5600MHz memory, will allow our customers to realise even greater application performance and power efficiency for AI, Cloud, 5G Edge, and Enterprise workloads. These new features will help customers accelerate their business and maximise their competitive advantage.”
Supermicro X13 systems will be able to take advantage of the new processors’ built-in workload accelerators, enhanced security features, and increased performance within the same power envelope as the previous generation of 4th Gen Intel Xeon processors. Using PCIe 5.0, the latest peripheral devices using CXL 1.1, NVMe storage, and the latest GPU accelerators deliver reduced application execution times. Customers will soon be able to leverage the new 5th Gen Intel Xeon processors in the tried-and-tested Supermicro X13 servers, with no software redesign or architectural changes required, reducing the lead times associated with completely new platforms and CPU designs, resulting in a faster time to productivity.
“5th Gen Intel® Xeon® processors build on the success of the Xeon platform, which has been leading the way in data centre compute for several generations,” said Lisa Spelman, CVP and GM Xeon Products & Solutions at Intel. “Our strong partnership with Supermicro will help deliver the benefits of 5th Gen Intel Xeon processors to customers soon and on platforms already proven in the data centre.”
The Supermicro portfolio of X13 systems is performance optimised, energy efficient, incorporates improved manageability and security, supports open industry standards, and is rack-scale optimised.
