SuperMicro unveils Greener, Faster X13 Server Portfolio for Intel Sapphire Rapids

As a top-tier partner of SuperMicro, we care about getting our clients the most efficient servers as part of our portfolio. With the ever rising cost of power in many regions and inflation hitting in every area of business, we try daily to bring the operating cost down of our server range.

SuperMicro has recently announced the new line for Sapphire Rapids - which is a popular choice of CPU at this time. In the words of SuperMicro themselves:

“The better, faster, and greener systems based on the brand new 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors (formerly codenamed Sapphire Rapids) deliver up to 60% better workload-optimized performance and improved security (hardware root of trust and attestation) and manageability, are faster with integrated AI, Storage, and Cloud acceleration, and greener with high ambient temperature and liquid cooling options that reduce environmental impact and operating costs.

Built into the 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, the accelerator engines increase efficiency and reduce CPU load for many critical workloads in today's data centers. These include Intel® Advanced Matrix Extensions (Intel AMX) to accelerate deep learning inference and training performance, Intel® Data Streaming Accelerator (Intel DSA) to reduce CPU overhead on storage, networking, and data-processing-intensive tasks, Intel® QuickAssist Technology (QAT) for hardware offload of popular cryptography and data compression/decompression algorithms, and Intel® AVX for vRAN to improve capacity and reduce power consumption for vRAN workloads.

In addition, Supermicro servers will support the new Intel® Data Center GPU Max Series (formerly named Ponte Vecchio) across a wide range of servers. The Intel Data Center GPU Max Series contains up to 128 Xe-HPC cores and will accelerate a range of AI, HPC, and visualization workloads.”

With the focus on green and efficiency at this time, here is what SuperMicro provided in regard to this new line of servers:

Greener 
Despite such drastic increases in capacity and performance, the advanced thermal architecture and optimized airflow of Supermicro X13 systems enable them to run in high-ambient-temperature environments of up to 40°C (104°F) with free-air cooling, reducing cooling-related infrastructure costs and OPEX. Liquid cooling options are also available for many X13 systems and can reduce OPEX by up to 40% compared to standard air conditioning. Supermicro's resource-saving architecture for multi-node systems utilizes shared cooling and power to reduce power consumption and raw materials usage, lowering both TCO and TCE. In addition, the in-house design of Titanium Level power supplies further ensures improved operational efficiency. As a result, the PUE of a data center can realistically be reduced from an industry average of 1.60 down to the 1.05 range.
