GIGABYTE Releases 6 New Unique Single Socket AMD EPYC™ 7002 Server Systems – Sep – 19, 2019 Taipei, Taiwan – (Techreleased) – Following our initial launch of 17 new AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series “Rome” based server platforms simultaneously with AMD’s official launch of their new generation data center processor last month, GIGABYTE is now proud to announce the addition of another six systems to our AMD EPYC™ server family. All new models created especially for the 2nd Generation AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series processor, these systems provide unique configurations and features to give our customers solutions to support their diverse and compute intensive workloads in the data center or at the edge.

GIGABYTE: The Best Choice for 2nd Generation AMD EPYC™

As Dr. Lisa Su has emphasized, GIGABYTE has been a strategic partner of AMD and leading systems vendor of their EPYC™ 7000 Series platforms since the release of the first generation “Naples” processor in 2017, and this status has recently been reaffirmed by news that GIGABYTE’s new single and dual socket systems using the AMD EPYC™ 7742 processor have smashed 11 world records in enterprise computing and HPC benchmarks from SPEC, not only achieved against results from alternative processor based systems but even against competing vendor solutions using the same EPYC™ 7742 processor – illustrating that GIGABYTE’s system design and engineering is perfectly optimized to deliver the maximum performance possible from the 2nd Generation AMD EPYC™.

These six new systems form part of the 28 EPYC™ 7002 Series systems in total (including rack mount servers, GPU servers and high density multi-node servers) planned to be available before the end of 2019 – and firmly establishing GIGABYTE’s position as the system vendor with the most complete and diverse AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series “Rome” system lineups on the market.

R162-Z10 / Z11: 1U 3 x NVIDIA T4 Server

The R162 Series features both excellent high performance storage and expansion capacity in a compact 1U chassis. Despite only being a single socket server, the 128 PCIe lanes of I/O provided by the EPYC™ 7002 Series allow the R162-Z10 to support up to ten 2.5” hot swap flash drives at the front of the system. As NVMe flash storage prices approach parity with SATA / SAS, all flash storage servers such as the R162-Z10 (or the H252-Z10 featured below) are rapidly becoming more and more compelling for mainstream enterprise adoption.

G242-Z10: 2U 4 x GPU System

The G242-Z10 is a 2U system built for GPU computing workloads, making full use of the EPYC’s 128 PCIe lanes of I/O to feature four PCIe Gen 3.0 x16 expansion slot bays for GPUs (with each GPU connected directly to the processor via PCIe root) as well as excellent storage availability with four 3.5” hot swap SATA / SAS drives in the front, two 2.5” hot-swap flash drives in the rear, and two onboard M.2 slots. Since each GPU bay has an ample height of 1.5U and exceptional airflow characteristics, this system is extremely flexible to be used with a diverse range of active or passive cooled GPU cards.

H252-Z10: 2U Single Socket Multi-Node Server

Following the success of our H262 Series dual socket 2U 4 node servers which proven extremely popular for HPC, GIGABYTE is also releasing a single socket version aimed for enterprise workloads. The H252-Z10 features four hot-plug single socket node trays accessed from the rear, and twenty-four 2.5” hot plug NVMe drive bays at the front (with six assigned to each node). As NVMe flash storage prices approach parity with SATA / SAS, all flash storage is rapidly becoming more and more compelling for mainstream enterprise adoption.

Conclusion

These six new single socket systems bring the disruptive technology of the AMD EPYC™ 7002 Series Processors to the market in a unique range of form factors and configurations, designed to be on point to meet our customer’s needs in enterprise, cloud or edge computing.
