    GIGABYTE is proud to announce two new models of workstation motherboards and one new model dedicated to mission critical server applications. All of them being based on the Intel Xeon processors E5-2600 product family, these new models are designed to answer demanding needs for computing resources across various usage models, form factors and scales. While these products have been naturally thought for scenarios requiring heavy computing power through GPUs or GPGPU / co-processors cards, from CAD/CAE to rendering, simulation and modeling, their most notable advantage relies in their unique memory performance capability. GIGABYTE motherboards support DDR3-1600 MHz speeds with 16 GB 1.35V RDIMMs.

    Achieved through GIGABYTE's capabilities in design, PCB layout and BIOS fine-tuning, this feature will be most appreciated in the many workstation applications where improvements in memory frequency result in speeding up the user's productivity and in all the industries relying on server applications where each incremental improvement in memory performance results in significant benefits, such as in finance.

    Also, these three models are built with GIGABYTE's digital PWM controllers, guaranteeing a dynamic power supply to the processor(s) and memory with an ultra-fast response time. Built with advanced calibration tools, they offer the purest and most efficient electrical supply to date. When the CPU workload varies in function of the applications running, the Intel Turbo Boost Technology will do a dynamic overclock of the CPU cores, where the digital PWMs outshine the previous analog solutions. This way the CPU operations are much more stable, and the overall reliability of the system is greatly improved.

    GA-7PESH3 - Super Workstation Board
    The GA-7PESH3 gives nothing less than the possibility to build a full-blown super workstation within a standard full tower desktop case. With up to 16 cores, 32 threads, 4 double slot GPU/co-processors, and connections for a storage array of up to 13 drives, the user's workflow can be accelerated with many Teraflops of pure computing power. The ultimate workstation board dedicated to CAD/CAE, simulation and modeling.

    Supports 4-Way SLI & CrossFireX
    In order to deliver the biggest computing acceleration possible to advanced workstation applications, the GA-7PESH3 can be equipped with up to four NVIDIA Tesla and Intel Xeon Phi co-processing cards, or with up to four NVIDIA Quadro or AMD FirePro cards working together in SLI/CrossFire modes.

    SAS 6Gbs Onboard
    The GA-7PESH3 is built with the LSI 2008 controller, which provides SAS support for up to eight SAS 6Gbs drives. Improved performance and long-term stability make SAS drives ideal for 24/7 intensive workstation and mission critical applications:
    • Faster read and writes – up 15,000rpm
    • Faster data seek times – more responsive
    • Better long term stability – up to 2 million hours MTBF
    • Available in 3.5" and compact 2.5" form factors
    • SCSI protocol offers improved data integrity
    Unique Memory Configuration
    Thanks to the unique memory capability described above, the GA-7PESH3 can receive 128GB of DDR3 RDIMM ECC memory running at 1600 MHz.

    GA-7PESH4 - Rock-Solid Backbone for Critical Server Applications
    Designed to over perform in all kind of mission critical applications, whether they are computing or memory intensive, highly parallel, relying on storage or depending on expansions, the GA-7PESH4 is a versatile and highly reliable base for business grade server applications.

    High End Quad GbE LAN Solution
    Built with the latest generation of network controller, optimized for virtualization, iSCSI and management related traffic, the GA-7PESH4 is designed to free the processors as much as possible from the network transfer loadings. Intense transfers will typically occupy up to 30% less computing resources compared to traditional LAN solutions. Also consumes less energy thanks to EEE and DMA coordination. Supports OS2BMC and MCTP.

    Unique Memory Configuration
    Thanks to the unique memory capability described above, the GA-7PESH4 can receive 256GB of DDR3 RDIMM ECC memory running at 1600 MHz.

    GA-6PXSV4 - For Workstations in Virtualized Environments
    Although this ATX model is suitable for tower workstation builds, the placement of its components and its airflow design has been optimized for rack integration. The critical computing resources of CAD/CAE teams within a large organization can be centralized in a way where maintenance and management can be scaled and made more convenient. With a quad LAN solution and a remote management controller, the GA-6PXSV4 is ready for computing intensive applications in virtualized environments.

    Supports 3-Way SLI & CrossFireX
    With three PCI-Express x16 Generation 3.0 slots supporting 3-way NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFireX modes, this motherboard can receive a trio of GPUs working together to deliver ultra-smooth and accelerated utilization of CAD/CAE and content creation applications. The GA-6PXSV4 can therefore deliver improved workflow, speed-up production, and ultimately strengthen the increasingly pressured capability of design houses to deliver their work in short periods of time.

    Unique Memory Configuration
    Thanks to the unique memory capability described above, the GA-7PESH3 can receive 128GB of DDR3 RDIMM ECC memory running at 1600 MHz.

    There really is nothing technically challenging about allowing these mobos to use DDR3 @ 1600 MHz. The CPUs are the issue with using slower RAM frequencies, not the mobo. The CPU must support significant quantities of DRAM @1600 MHz. for servers/workstations, so I'm sure there is a little disclamer notice on these mobos about the RAM frequency and CPU used.

    Actually, if you're using fully buffered RDIMMs, you would be surprised how much more difficult it gets to run memory faster while still calculating and storing ECC parity as well as buffering the memory. Stability for a server is important that everything else because a server can't do it job reliably (which is very important for mission critical applications, or most applications for that matter) if it isn't stable.

    So no, the CPU and motherboard aren't the only limiting factors. In fact for ECC memory they're not the limiting factors in most cases.

    Welcome to TPU. Don't go trolling you don't know what is going on. The board looks like it is designed for a rackmount chassis. It doesn't look stupid, it doesn't look like it is for a regular tower that is all. Go troll elsewhere. :(

    I would take that one for a gateway actually. All of the ethernet ports would let me dedicate 1Gbps to each switch at work rather than routing them all through one.

    You're like the Kevin Federline of posting. Insightful, dynamic, handsome and a true revolutionary.

    No but seriously, come with arguments instead.

    Your attitude. You're acting like a child with the maturity to match. If all you can say is that something is stupid then dismiss what someone says by saying "what ever" that's disrespectful, it's immature, and it doesn't contribute to the thread.

    Post only if you have something useful and appropriate to contribute..
