Supermicro updated its servers with the new Intel Xeon E-2200 Series for Servers. The company’s platforms from the Xeon E-2100 series can be updated to support the newest processor series with a BIOS upgrade. For those that already utilize the Xeon E ecosystem, this means that one can access the new 8-core CPUs such as the Intel Xeon E-2288G we reviewed. Adding two cores, or 33% to the total core count and hitting up to 5GHz on the CPU’s clock speeds is a significant improvement. In our launch coverage, we noted that these new 8-core CPUs now can attack the lower-end of the Intel Xeon Scalable market. They will be especially popular in the dedicated hosting market and some edge deployments.
Supermicro Intel Xeon E-2200 Series on STH
At STH, we did two reviews of the Intel Xeon E-2200 series products. First, we are using the Supermicro X11SCA-F for our CPU reviews.
STH also reviewed the Supermicro SYS-5019C-MR which is a 1U platform that will be updated to utilize the newest chips with a BIOS update.
These new platforms will support up to 128GB of memory as well, furthering their ability to address market needs beyond just higher core counts.
Patrick, our Editor-in-Chief gave a quote for Supermicro’s press release since we tested the company’s products in this segment:
“In our reviews, we found the Intel Xeon E-2100 series in Supermicro servers accelerated innovation in the segment at a greater pace than we have seen in almost a decade,” said Patrick Kennedy, Editor-in-Chief, ServeTheHome. “Our testing with Supermicro’s platforms and the new Intel Xeon E-2200 series processors shows this rapid pace of innovation continuing with even more performance in proven servers and workstations.”
