Supermicro unveils edge-optimized X13 servers with 5th gen Intel Xeon processors

Supermicro, an IT solution manufacturer for AI, cloud, storage and 5G/edge, announces new rack-scale air and liquid-cooled solutions based on the X13 family of servers.

According to the company, these solutions now support the 5th Gen Intel Xeon processors, offering GPU servers for generative AI, Petascale servers for throughput and latency optimization, high-density storage servers and 4-node SuperEdge systems with enhanced storage capacity.

Supermicro’s president and CEO, Charles Liang, says Supermicro utilizes workload-optimized server building blocks to develop fully integrated Rack Scale solutions for clients, resulting in faster delivery times and supporting up to 100kW per rack.

“We are already shipping early units to customers worldwide,” Liang adds.

Supermicro says its X13 systems offer performance optimization, energy efficiency, improved manageability, enhanced security, support for open industry standards and rack-scale optimization. The systems utilize the latest processors with built-in workload accelerators, enhanced security features and higher performance, the company says.

They maintain the same power envelope as the previous generation Intel Xeon processors. The 5th Gen Intel Xeon processors deliver a 36% higher average performance/watt than the 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors.

According to Lisa Spelman, the corporate VP and general manager of Xeon products & solutions at Intel, 5th Gen Intel Xeon processors bring improvements in performance and efficiency to meet customers’ critical workload demands.

“Supermicro’s X13 range of servers are designed to give customers the fastest path to increased performance given their compatibility with 4th Gen Xeon based platforms already in the market, Spelman continues.

Supermicro also offers rack integration and liquid cooling solutions, providing both CPU and GPU direct-to-chip liquid cooling options.

The company says it is also launching new servers to support the latest Intel Xeon E-2400 processors. These systems are optimized for maximum efficiency in edge and cloud workloads. They come in various configurations, including WIO, storage-optimized, short-depth, mid-tower and multi-node architectures, Supermicro notes. The Intel Xeon E-2400 processors have up to 8 cores and a top frequency of 5.6 GHz.

Supermicro is an IT solutions provider specializing in enterprise, cloud, AI and 5G telco/edge infrastructure. They offer various products, including servers, AI systems, storage, IoT devices and switches. Supermicro offers customizable server building block solutions that optimize workloads and applications. They also say they are committed to sustainability, designing and manufacturing their products in-house.
