Supermicro X11SPA-T Motherboard Review An Intel Xeon W-3200 Platform


Supermicro X11SPA-T Motherboard Blender Benchmark

The benchmark consists of two parts: a downloadable package which runs Blender and renders on several production files, and the Open Data portal on, where the results will be (optionally) uploaded. This benchmark can be downloaded here.

We are going to continue to build-out this data set in the near future.

Supermicro X11SPA-T Motherboard POV-RAY 3.7.0

This is another new benchmark for us and will continue to update results. This benchmark is available for download here.

The Supermicro X11SPA-T Motherboard platform completed this in 30.27 seconds.

Next, we are going to look at AIDA64 CPU Benchmarks.


  1. When using the w3200 chip, does the board use the full 64 pcie lanes or just the 48 lanes as designed for use with the Cascade Lake Xeon SP chips?
    Major letdown if Supermicro designed this motherboard for the w3200 chip but do not utilize the extra 16 PCIe lanes!!

  2. I’m was in the stages of building a powerhouse esxi home lab system. I wanted the flagship W series processor in it, and a 9460-16i raid controller to run samsung 983 u.2’s in raid 1 or 10 config in an esx compatible format (i.e. not software raid). This looks to be the perfect MB for this money suck! (and what a beautiful money suck it will be…….) probably won’t happen till the end of 2020 as I have a big vacation planned for the summer time that will take the majority of my financial consideration…….. but I’m already thinking about this thing far too much (a massive upgrade from my existing e5-2687 with 9260-8i with raid’d spinners…….)

  3. …. on a side note…… I haven’t searched yet, my next step on this site, but has anyone used/reviewed the Asetek 690LX-PN Liquid Cooler for these processors?

  4. Yet they won’t make a board for the Xeon W-32xx series that can go into a server chassis. They’re all “workstation” boards with everything oriented in a way assumed to be in a tower case (direction of convection). Some excuse that Intel won’t let them. Can anyone out there just hack a server board for me to let me use one of these processors in it? Same socket, same chipset. Just disallowed because of “security.”
