Gigabyte Technology Company has introduced its new supercomputing module built for a 2U rack, but able to support up to eight double slot accelerator cards. According to Gigabyte’s press release, the 8 card capacity in a 2U chassis is at this point in time a unique feature which “opens the door to new records in teraflops performance” for a unit of this size.

The GS-R22PHL system works best with Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors and Nvidia Tesla graphical processing units. In turn, a powerful dual socket platform supports the 8 GPU and MIC cards. The GS-R22PHL server features:

  • Up to 512GB RDIMM ECC unbuffered memory,
  • 8 2.5” hot-swappable HDD bays, supporting SATA II 3Gb/s and 6Gb/s, SATA III 6Gb/s and SAS 3Gb/s,
  • Intel C602 chipset built for demanding enterprise workloads,
  • 80 PLUS Platinum level 1600W redundant power supply unit,
  • And support for Intel’s Xeon E5-2600 processors.  

The GS-R22PHL is ideal for organizations looking for an efficient, compact server capable of supporting compute intensive applications. Gigabyte suggests that the supercomputing module is also a good solution for virtualization, rendering, data mining as well as scientific research, simulation and modeling.    

Gigabyte Technology is a Taiwanese company that has been manufacturing motherboards, graphic cards, personal computers, servers and datacenter equipment along with some consumer devices. Gigabyte’s new GS-R22PHL server is available today.
