Supermicro® New 4U FatTwin™ Supports 12x Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessors

Supermicro® New 4U FatTwin™ Supports 12x Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessors 
Company's Power Saving Platform Delivers 16% Higher Energy Efficiency than the 
Competition and Offers Highest Compute Density in its Class 
SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 12, 2012 /CNW/ - Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: 
SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server technology 
and green computing, has readied a wide selection of server platforms for 
Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessors based on Intel® Many Integrated Core (MIC) 
architecture in form-factors ranging from 1U-3U rack mount systems to 4U Tower 
servers. Supermicro's 4-node FatTwin platform has a new model which supports 
up to 3 Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor cards per U for a total of 12 coprocessors 
in 4U. With dual Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 and up to 512GB of memory 
support per node this hybrid SuperServer offers an amazing amount of parallel 
processing power to accelerate research while simplifying development of 
highly-parallel applications. A key advantage of the FatTwin platform is its 
shared resource, power saving architecture with high-efficiency 8cm heavy-duty 
cooling fans, optimized airflow and Platinum Level (94%+) power supplies, 
which combined provide up to 16% greater efficiency over similar server 
"Supermicro supports Intel's Xeon Phi coprocessors across our 
high-performance, high efficiency server and workstation product lines," said 
Wally Liaw, Vice President of Sales, International at Supermicro. "Our FatTwin 
computing platform features the highest density with support for 12x highly 
parallel processing accelerator cards in 4U while providing 16% higher energy 
efficiency than the competition through a combination of our innovative shared 
resource architecture, optimized cooling designs and Platinum Level high 
efficiency (94%+) power supplies. With Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors added to 
our product portfolio, Supermicro customers will have the widest range of form 
factors optimized for the most sophisticated HPC applications." 
"Customers adopting HPC systems and Big Data analytics require the efficiency, 
expertise and nimble execution that Supermicro brings to the industry," said 
Raj Hazra, VP and general manager of Intel Technical Computing Group. "By 
uniting our most powerful processing technologies – Intel Xeon processors 
E5-2600 product family and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors, companies like 
Supermicro are accelerating engineering and scientific discovery with 
double-precision performance in a hybrid environment and more importantly 
providing developers a new, more efficient path to application deployment with 
common instruction sets and multiple programming models." 
Supermicro supports dual Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family 
across the platforms designed for Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor. 1U SuperServers 
(SYS-1017GR-TF, SYS-5017GR-TF, SYS-1027GR-TRFT/TRF/TSF,) support up to 3x 
Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor cards with 256GB in 8x DIMM slots for RAM, 4x 
hot-swap 2.5" HDD bays, 2x GbE or 10GbE network ports and dual 1800W redundant 
Platinum Level high efficiency (95%) power supplies, other 1U models 
(SYS-1027GR-TRFT+/TRF+) support up to 2x Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor cards with 
512GB in 16x DIMM slots, 4x hot-swap 2.5" HDD bays, 2x GbE or 2x10GbE network 
ports and dual 1800W redundant Platinum Level high efficiency (95%) power 
supplies, making them ideal platforms for energy exploration, computational 
finance, 3D modeling and chemistry applications. 2U SuperServers 
(SYS-2027GR-TRF/TRFT/TSF, SYS-2027GR-TRFH/TRFHT) support up to 6x Intel Xeon 
Phi coprocessor cards and feature greater storage in 10x hot-swap 2.5" HDD 
bays and 2x GbE or 2x 10GbE network ports making these systems perfect for 
supercomputing cluster applications in scientific, research and engineering 
fields. The 3U SYS-6037R-72RFT+ supports 2x Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor cards 
and offers maximum memory/storage capacity with up to 768GB in 24x DIMMs and 
8x hot-swap 3.5" HDD bays and an additional 2x 5.25" peripheral drive bays 
making it an ideal candidate for virtualization and HPC in the cloud. 4U Tower 
solution SYS-7047GR-TPRF supports up to 4x Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor cards 
with 512GB in 16x DIMM slots and 8x hot-swap 3.5" HDDs for mission critical 
enterprise server, large database and online transaction processing
