Sun Micro reveals 12-core ready server motherboard

Posted on Friday, March 12 2010 @ 00:30:01 CET by


Bright Side of News spotted the Super Micro H8SGL-F, a new single-socket server motherboard that supports eight- and twelve-core AMD Opteron processors.
While Super Micro has multiple platforms on offer, catering to the server and workstation crowd, we feel that a single-socket design just could be the most exciting one. H8SGL-F is not exactly the easiest product name to pronounce - however, this product features SR5650 Northbridge and SP5100 Southbridge chipset, eight DIMM slots supporting Quad-Channel, 256-bit memory controller. Yes, you've read that correctly - quad-channel memory controller is guilty for 42.66 GB/s of system bandwidth. The motherboard supports DDR3-1066 and DDR3-1333 memory types - even though if the company could push AMD's memory controller to accept 4GB DDR3-1600 modules from the likes of Kingston, you could have up to 51.2GB/s of system bandwidth. If you are for quantity, H8SGL-F supports 128GB of DDR3-1066 if you use super-dense 16GB modules. Naturally, you'd be paying $3000 per DIMM - the possibility is there, though. Realistically, this board will be outfitted with 16-32GB of system memory, even though Don told us there are customers that want to go beyond 128GB of memory per processor.
