Supermicro Unveils Industry‚Äôs‚ÄĎFirst 64-Core Workstation Supporting Four Double-Width GPUs with AMD Ryzen‚ĄĘ Threadripper‚ĄĘ PRO Processor at All-Digital CES¬ģ 2021

Work¬≠sta¬≠tion Com¬≠ple¬≠ments Industry‚Äôs Broa¬≠dest Port¬≠fo¬≠lio of 2nd Gen AMD EPYC‚ĄĘ Based High-Den¬≠si¬≠ty, Supe¬≠ri¬≠or Per¬≠for¬≠mance Ser¬≠ver Solutions

San Jose, Calif., Janu¬≠ary 12, 2021 ‚ÄĒ Super Micro Com¬≠pu¬≠ter, Inc. (SMCI), a glo¬≠bal lea¬≠der in enter¬≠pri¬≠se com¬≠pu¬≠ting, sto¬≠rage, net¬≠wor¬≠king solu¬≠ti¬≠ons, and green com¬≠pu¬≠ting tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gy, exten¬≠ded its indus¬≠try-pro¬≠ven work¬≠sta¬≠tion fami¬≠ly with a new gene¬≠ra¬≠ti¬≠on ser¬≠ver-gra¬≠de high-end work¬≠sta¬≠tion that offers maxi¬≠mum con¬≠fi¬≠gu¬≠ra¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ty and relia¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ty in a robust sin¬≠gle-socket plat¬≠form. The new work¬≠sta¬≠tion is just the latest in Supermicro‚Äôs over¬≠all sup¬≠port of AMD pro¬≠ces¬≠sors, inclu¬≠ding the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC‚ĄĘ based ser¬≠vers for mul¬≠ti¬≠ple applications.

The high¬≠ly ver¬≠sa¬≠ti¬≠le, con¬≠fi¬≠gura¬≠ble plat¬≠form harnes¬≠ses the power of the AMD Ryzen Thre¬≠ad¬≠rip¬≠per PRO Pro¬≠ces¬≠sor with up to 64 cores and 128 PCI‚ÄĎE 4.0 lanes, doubling the data through¬≠put of the pre¬≠vious gene¬≠ra¬≠ti¬≠on. The new work¬≠sta¬≠tion (AS ‚ÄĎ5014A-TT) dra¬≠ma¬≠ti¬≠cal¬≠ly boosts pro¬≠duc¬≠ti¬≠vi¬≠ty for deman¬≠ding pro¬≠fes¬≠sio¬≠nal workloads found in media con¬≠tent crea¬≠ti¬≠on, sci¬≠en¬≠ti¬≠fic rese¬≠arch, visua¬≠liza¬≠ti¬≠on, deep lear¬≠ning (DL) and arti¬≠fi¬≠ci¬≠al intel¬≠li¬≠gence (AI), vir¬≠tu¬≠al or aug¬≠men¬≠ted rea¬≠li¬≠ty (VR/AR), and 3‚ÄĎD mode¬≠ling with real-time simulation.

‚ÄúWhen AMD‚Äôs new pro¬≠ces¬≠sor is cou¬≠pled with Supermicro‚Äôs advan¬≠ced work¬≠sta¬≠tion design and archi¬≠tec¬≠tu¬≠re, today‚Äôs pro¬≠fes¬≠sio¬≠nals can tru¬≠ly bring their pro¬≠duc¬≠ti¬≠vi¬≠ty to the next level,‚ÄĚ said Vik Malya¬≠la, seni¬≠or vice pre¬≠si¬≠dent, Super¬≠mi¬≠cro. ‚ÄúIt can dri¬≠ve up to four full-height, dou¬≠ble-width, acti¬≠ve coo¬≠ling GPUs, dou¬≠ble that of simi¬≠lar sys¬≠tems in the mar¬≠ket, and sup¬≠ports up to 2TB of DDR4 3200 memo¬≠ry, and four M.2 slots for ultra-fast PCI‚ÄĎE Gen 4 NVMe sto¬≠rage. Also, with built-in 10Gigatbit Ether¬≠net, and sup¬≠port for 25/100/200G NICs, the plat¬≠form acce¬≠le¬≠ra¬≠tes data-inten¬≠si¬≠ve workloads and trans¬≠fer speed ‚ÄĒ requi¬≠red for today‚Äôs con¬≠tent crea¬≠tors, deep lear¬≠ning pro¬≠fes¬≠sio¬≠nals, and engineers.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúAMD Ryzen‚ĄĘ Thre¬≠ad¬≠rip¬≠per‚ĄĘ PRO pro¬≠ces¬≠sors have been desi¬≠gned to set the indus¬≠try stan¬≠dard for work¬≠sta¬≠tion com¬≠pu¬≠te per¬≠for¬≠mance,‚ÄĚ said Chris Kilb¬≠urn, cor¬≠po¬≠ra¬≠te vice pre¬≠si¬≠dent and gene¬≠ral mana¬≠ger, cli¬≠ent com¬≠po¬≠nent busi¬≠ness unit, AMD. ‚ÄúWith the new AS-5014A-TT Work¬≠sta¬≠tion, Super¬≠mi¬≠cro has desi¬≠gned a powerful and fle¬≠xi¬≠ble plat¬≠form, dedi¬≠ca¬≠ted to maxi¬≠mi¬≠zing the full spec¬≠trum of com¬≠pu¬≠te capa¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ties offe¬≠red by AMD Ryzen Thre¬≠ad¬≠rip¬≠per PRO processors.‚ÄĚ

Super¬≠mi¬≠cro 2nd Gen AMD EPYC‚ĄĘ Solutions

In addi¬≠ti¬≠on to Supermicro‚Äôs sup¬≠port for the AMD Ryzen Thre¬≠ad¬≠rip¬≠per PRO pro¬≠ces¬≠sors, Super¬≠mi¬≠cro con¬≠ti¬≠nues to deli¬≠ver a wide ran¬≠ge of solu¬≠ti¬≠ons lever¬≠aging AMD‚Äôs 2nd Gen EPYC series. The¬≠se include the H12 Super¬≠Bla¬≠de¬ģ and sin¬≠gle and dual-socket mul¬≠ti-node A+ Twin Ser¬≠vers, the I/O and cost-effec¬≠ti¬≠ve¬≠ness focu¬≠sed WIO line of A+ Ser¬≠vers, as well as dual AMD EPYC pro¬≠ces¬≠sors with mul¬≠ti-GPU ser¬≠vers sup¬≠port¬≠ing eight dou¬≠ble-width GPUs in 4U, NVIDIA HGX A100 8‚ÄĎGPU in 4U, 4‚ÄĎGPU in 2U. With PCI‚ÄĎE 4.0 x16 sup¬≠port, the¬≠se A+ Ser¬≠vers can deli¬≠ver 200G net¬≠work con¬≠nec¬≠ti¬≠vi¬≠ty and fea¬≠ture a lar¬≠ge, ultra-fast sto¬≠rage foot¬≠print and DDR4 memo¬≠ry up 3200MHz to deli¬≠ver record-brea¬≠king per¬≠for¬≠mance with com¬≠pel¬≠ling TCO and TCE.
