    Super Micro Computer, Inc., a leader in application-optimized, high-performance server solutions, today launched a comprehensive new line of server and workstation solutions specially designed to support the Intel Xeon Processor 5500 series (formerly codenamed Nehalem). Supermicro has started shipping its new 2U Twin2 (“Twin Squared” with four hot-pluggable DP nodes), newly invented Twin GPU 1U server/workstation, the award-winning 1U Twin, SuperBlade, flexible Universal I/O (UIO) server, SAS2 storage systems, as well as its strong line of traditional application-optimized server solutions. Featuring the highest efficiency in the industry power supplies (93%+), cooling subsystems and motherboard designs, Supermicro solutions set a new record for the best performance-per-watt (375 GFLOPS/kW) and also deliver the best performance-per-dollar and performance-per-square-foot.

    Based on the company's latest application-optimized Server Building Block architectures, Supermicro maximizes the new Nehalem technology, which includes QPI (Intel QuickPath Interconnect) for up to 6.4GT/s, Integrated DDR3 Memory Controller, multiple power envelops, and Intel Turbo Boost Technology, to provide the industry’s highest performing and most optimized new generation server solutions.

    "The 2U Twin2, Twin GPU 1U server, and 93%+ technologies offer extra performance-per-watt, TCO savings and computing density, especially when powered by new Nehalem processors," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. "Our solutions deliver the highest system-level efficiency in the industry. This increases the maximum computing power per rack and lowers the total cost of ownership, while also reducing energy consumption and preserving the environment."

    "The new Intel Xeon Processor 5500 series provides a foundation for Supermicro to deliver its customers new levels of system intelligence, with the processor's ability to dynamically optimize itself to meet the performance and energy efficiency requirements of a given workload and customer environment," said Kirk Skaugen, vice president and general manager of Intel's Server Platforms Group. "Intel is thrilled with the collaboration and innovation we've seen from Supermicro around this new breakthrough in intelligent processing."
