Supermicro® Hyper-Speed Servers Accelerate Low-Latency Applications with up 
to 30% Performance Gains 
New HFT-Optimized Server Solutions Debut at HFT World, New York 
NEW YORK, Dec. 4, 2012 /CNW/ - Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a 
global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server technology and green 
computing, debuts a new line of ultra high performance "Hyper-Speed" servers 
this week at High Frequency Trading World, New York. These new 2U and 4U/Tower 
platforms deliver unparalleled performance for HFT applications by maximizing 
processing power and precisely tuning hardware and firmware to attain up to 
30% lower latency over competitive solutions while still maintaining high 
reliability as a primary design focus. Built on Supermicro's X9DAX series 
dual-processor (DP) motherboards and SC829BTQ chassis with best-in-class 
thermals, Hyper-Speed systems allow the highest performance Intel® Xeon® 
E5-2600 series processors (up to 150W TDP) to be tuned for even higher 
performance and run at peak performance in a dense 2U form factor for 
colocation installations. Systems architecture is designed for maximum airflow 
and custom heatsinks provide optimal thermal distribution for mission critical 
reliability. Additional performance tuning features include adjustable onboard 
frequencies, voltages and memory latencies as well as firmware optimizations 
to further lower latency.

"Advanced trading firms looking to reduce latency and maximize transaction 
flow can gain an advantage with the extreme processing power and 
enterprise-class server optimizations designed into Supermicro's Hyper-Speed 
systems," said Wally Liaw, Vice President of Sales, International at 
Supermicro. "Our latest HFT-optimized platforms boost performance of the 
fastest rated x86 dual processors with board-level control and circuitry 
enhancements and custom tailored cooling systems for the highest sustained 
performance. With mission critical transactions on the line, Supermicro 
Hyper-Speed systems ensure peak performance with maximum reliability for the 
most demanding computational finance applications." 
Supermicro's HFT-optimized Hyper-Speed platforms feature premium pre-installed 
CPUs and memory. Storage and I/O components are validated with a rigorous 
burn-in process to ensure maximum performance and reliability on deployment.
