We just received word that Gigabyte has launched four new Intel Xeon D motherboards. All four are based on the newer revision chips launched by Intel in November. We have heard that the new Xeon D parts are starting to make their way to manufacturers and so we should see platforms ship soon. Xeon D supply was limited during the initial launch, but we expect to have a review of our first Gigabyte Xeon D platform soon. No word on pricing or retail availability yet, but we will update you as soon as we have more on that.

[Update 1] We have word that US distributors have placed orders but the boards have not shipped yet. Expected availability is “soon.” We are still confirming pricing.

Four new Gigabyte Xeon D motherboards

The four Gigabyte Xeon D motherboards launched today use the new Intel Xeon D-15×1 processors. Gigabyte is using two different models across the four platforms: the Intel Xeon D-1521 (4 core / 8 thread) and the Intel Xeon D-1541 (8 core / 16 thread). All four motherboards are mITX form factors. Two of the motherboards have dual 10GbE SFP+ networking, which has been requested by STH forum members for a long time, along with dual 1GbE. The other two motherboards have dual 1GbE only without 10GbE.

  1. I hoped, but unfortunately still not good enough.
    Supermicros board is missing 10G SFP+ but Gigabytes is missing m.2!!

    I’d like a D-1541 board with m.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 and 10G SFP+ w/SR-IOV. And of course full support for VM.

  2. I want a comparison of this vs supermicro X10SDV-TLN4F.
    Gigabyte: 1541, Supermicro 1540, so gigabyte has sr-iov, supermico not.
    Gigabyte: 10g sfp+ (fiber), Supermicro 10g rj45
    Gigabyte – no m.2, supermicro has m.2

    Supermicro available (see info at tinkertry.com). gigabyte unknown till first availability.

    Is that it? I don’t want fiber 10gig at my house.
