GIGABYTE Launches Line of Server Boards Based on the Intel Xeon D-1500 Family

GIGABYTE Technology, a leading creator of high performance server hardware, releases today its line of server motherboards based on the Intel Xeon processor D-1500 product family, a System-on-a-Chip platform aimed at low power and high density server applications. This new lineup includes at launch four models of Mini-ITX boards mixing different SKUs of the Xeon D-1500 processors and different networking solutions.

Based on the Broadwell microarchitecture, the Intel Xeon processor D-1500 product family features System-on-a-Chip processors based on the 14nm process. Designed for high density and scale-out server infrastructures, these processors focus on high power efficiency while maintaining datacenter grade features. Through this density and computing power, this processor family aims at lowering the total cost of ownership of server, storage and networking applications.

Qualcomm Announces its First Socketed Enterprise CPU

Qualcomm, which holds a ton of ARM SoC patents, and put them to good use with its Snapdragon line of SoCs for smartphones, tablets, and convertible notebooks, is foraying into enterprise computing market. The company is ready with its first prototype of a 24-core high-performance CPU based on the 64-bit ARM machine architecture. ARM-based processors are picking up momentum in the server and micro-server markets owning to their low cost, low cooling requirements, and high energy-efficiency; and Qualcomm wants a slice of that pie. Most enterprise Linux and FreeBSD distributors have versions of their server operating systems for the 64-bit ARM architecture, as do most popular server software providers.

The prototype 24-core CPU is socketed, and ships in a large land-grid array (LGA) package, much like Intel's Xeon chips. The first production chips will have a lot more than 24 CPU cores, said Qualcomm senior vice president Anand Chandrasekhar. As a proof of concept, Qualcomm assembled three server blades using these chips, which were running Linux with a KVM hypervisor, streaming HD video to a PC using a LAMP stack (Linux + Apache + MySQL + PHP) built with OpenStack. Qualcomm's target consumers are big Internet companies like Google and Facebook, which purchase hundreds of thousands of CPUs each year to cope with growing user- and content-traffic.

New Portable USB Crash Cart Adapter Turns a Laptop into a Portable Console, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity parts, has announced the availability of a new Portable USB Crash Cart Adapter (NOTECONS02). The adapter makes it easier for server technicians and field engineers to perform maintenance on servers, PCs, ATMs, kiosks and other headless devices by turning their laptop into a portable console, instead of using a conventional - and more cumbersome - server room crash cart. The NOTECONS02 is the second crash cart adapter from, and builds on the popularity of the previous model with the addition of local file transfer capability and improved USB transfer speed.

ASUS Launches Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3-Based Servers and Serverboards

ASUS today announced E8 servers and P9D serverboards for new Intel Xeon processors based on the Intel Denlow platform. E8 and P9D models are engineered for High Ambient Temperature operation at up to 40°C, and deliver over 90% voltage regulation efficiency, representing a major improvement over previous models. Both series also feature PCI Express 3.0, USB 3.0, and ASUS PIKE storage upgrade support.

With ASUS-exclusive air cooling designs, the E8 and P9D Series perform well in HTA (High Ambient Temperature) environments, and maintain stability even at sustained temperatures above 40°C. Their high energy efficiency reduces power consumption, a key aspect of data center applications. Exclusive ASUS Beat Thermal Chokes decrease operating temperatures by 3-5°C and achieve up to 90% voltage regulation efficiency. E8 servers use 80 PLUS power supplies that help reduce operating costs through lower electricity bills.

NEC Display Solutions Introduces New MultiSync Professional Series Monitor at InfoCom

NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today the 23-inch MultiSync P232W-BK and P232W-BK-SV desktop monitors. The full HD MultiSync P232W can be seen at InfoComm 2012 (NEC Display Solutions Booth No. C6819) from June 13 – 15, 2012, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev.

The budget-friendly MultiSync P232W display joins the next-generation MultiSync P Series, which features standard-gamut displays designed for web graphics, online video and photography professionals to ensure accurate, consistent and repeatable color performance. Its white LED-backlit IPS panel allows a low power consumption of 29 watts and slimmer depth compared to its predecessor, while its ambient light sensor automatically adjusts the display’s brightness based on lighting conditions.

GIGABYTE Intros 6PXSV3 Workstation Motherboard

GIGABYTE recently rolled out the 6PXSV3, a workstation motherboard designed for Xeon E5-1600/2600 processors in the LGA2011 package. Based on the Intel C604 chipset, the motherboard is designed to provide essential modern and legacy connectivity to workstations in mission-critical environments. The LGA2011 socket is powered by a 6-phase VRM with CPL-made chokes, and IR-made FETs and VRM controller. It is wired to eight DIMM slots, which support up to 256 GB (RDIMM) and 64 GB (UDIMM) of quad-channel DDR3-1600 MHz memory.

There are just the three expansion slots, two PCI-Express 3.0 x16, and one open-ended PCI-Express 2.0 x4. The remainder of the processor and chipset's PCI-Express lane budgets are allocated PCI-Express DMI-assist, which helps drive the mini SAS with 4 x SAS ports (3Gb/s), apart from four SATA 3 Gb/s, and two SATA 6 Gb/s ports. An ASPEED 2300 provides display output (resolutions up to 1920x1200 supported), and remote management (iKVM, IPMI 2.0). There are two gigbit Ethernet interfaces, driven by Intel 82574L chips, a third management port is also available. The GA-6PXSV3 will be available shortly.

Princeton Intros Bluetooth Virtual KVM

Japanese company Princeton took the concepts of Bluetooth input devices for tablets and smartphones, and turned it around. Its newest creation, the PSC Bluetooth KVM, is a combination of a USB Bluetooth 3.0 dongle, Bluetooth input device driver model, and its own software, that lets you use the input devices that are connected to your PC/laptop (your wired keyboard and mouse), with your Android, iOS, or Windows Mobile smartphone or tablet. This could come particularly handy to those who have their iPads on a stand, next to their PCs on their desks, as you could instantly give input to the iPad, and get things done faster. The PSC Bluetooth virtual KVM, from Princeton, is priced at 4,980 JPY (US $61).
