Since we had a relatively full configuration, we wanted to see if the 1kW 80Plus Titanium PSUs were sufficient.
- Idle: 0.17kW
- 60% Load (non-AVX): 0.68kW
- 100% Load: 0.74kW
- AVX-512 GROMACS Load: 0.78kW
We tested these in our data center with 70% RH on 208V power. One time we noticed is that the power supplies only put out 800W at 110/120V. As such, one may want to configure a system with different power supplies if using a lower-voltage rack.
STH Server Spider
In the second half of 2018, we introduced the STH Server Spider as a quick reference to where a server system’s aptitude lies. Our goal is to start giving a quick visual depiction of the types of parameters that a server is targeted at.
Here we have a fairly standard type of STH Server Spider for a system in this class, perhaps with the exception of the storage. That is due to the fact that we have 3.5″ bays in this system while we do not in many of the 2.5″/ SSD-only configurations we test. Still, the goal of this server is to be a well-rounded 1U server which is a role it fits well.
Hopefully, in this review, you got a sense of the what, why, and how this server was constructed. As part of Supermicro’s portfolio, the AS-1024US-TRT is a specific configuration within the context of a broader 1U AMD EPYC portfolio, which is part of the broader Ultra-style EPYC portfolio, that is within the broader AMD portfolio, and the broadest Supermicro portfolio. That is a lot of layers. At the same time, the influences on this server are not just what is in the machine itself, but it is also the context around how it is released. That explains why and how the server is being designed for specific customer segments and needs.
Overall, this system performed well. With dual AMD EPYC 7003 “Milan” processors a lot of expandability, this system is designed to consolidate two older generation Intel Xeon or even AMD EPYC 7001 series servers into a single 1U platform. The impact of 2:1 consolidation is enormous in this segment.
If you are looking for a dual AMD EPYC 7003 series “Milan” server that has a lot of expandability and pronounced design objectives, then this server from Supermicro is an excellent option.
