Supermicro Unleashes New X11 Server Building Block Solutions with Full Support for new Intel Xeon Scalable Processors

Broadest Portfolio of New Dual-Socket and Single-Socket Motherboards and SuperChassis optimized with Hot-swap NVMe support

San Jose, CA, July 11, 2017 - Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology and green computing, today has released a comprehensive line of new X11 generation server and storage motherboard and chassis solutions fully optimized for the new Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors.


The Supermicro X11 dual-processor (DP) and uniprocessor (UP) Serverboards and SuperWorkstation boards support the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors for exceptional performance. They are offered in a variety of form factors, including ATX, E-ATX, EE-ATX, and several proprietary versions supporting the broadest array of market segments.  These new X11 generation motherboards offer the highest levels of performance, efficiency, security and scalability in the industry with:


  • Up to 3TB ECC DDR4 2666MHz (2933 MHz) in 24 DIMM slots per node
  • Up to 11 PCI-E 3.0 slots
  • SAS 3.0/SATA 3.0 and NVMe hot-swap HDD/SSD support
  • 10GBase-T/10G SFP+/25G Ethernet and100Gbps EDR InfiniBand networking options
  • M.2 NVMe and SATA support
  • IPMI 2.0 plus KVM with dedicated LAN
  • SIOM (Supermicro I/O Module) support for flexible networking options

In addition, the SuperWorkstation motherboards offer 7.1 HD Audio, Thunderbolt 3.0 AOC header, up to 11 USB ports and USB 3.1 support.

With these new generation X11 serverboard and SuperWorkstation boards, Supermicro offers the most extensive range of computing solutions for data center, enterprise, cloud, HPC, Hadoop/Big Data, AI/deep learning, storage, and embedded environments.


Supermicro’s new X11 generation motherboard and chassis solutions are engineered to unleash the full performance and rich feature sets on the new Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor family, supporting more cores and higher TDP envelopes of 205 watts and higher, increased number of memory channels and higher bandwidth, more PCI-E 3.0 lanes, 100G/40G/25G/10G Ethernet, 100G EDR InfiniBand and integrated  Intel® Omni-Path Architecture networking fabrics. The elevated compute performance, density, I/O capacity, and efficiency are coupled with industry’s most comprehensive support for NVMe NAND Flash and Intel® Optane SSDs for unprecedented application responsiveness and agility. Customers can select the Server, Storage, Network, or Workstation solutions optimized for their applications, as well as the performance, memory, storage, and I/O profiles that are optimally matched to their workloads, at attractive price points.
