MiTAC/Tyan Exhibits Off Motherboard and Servers for Intel’s Xeon 6 CPUs

Later this yr Intel is ready to introduce its Xeon 6-branded processors, codenamed Granite Rapids (6x00P) and Sierra Forest (6x00E). And with it would come a brand new slew of server motherboards and pre-built server platforms to go along with it. On the latter observe, this would be the first era the place Intel will not offer any pre-builts of its personal, after selling that business off to MiTAC last year.

To that finish, MiTAC and its subsidiary Tyan had been at this yr’s occasion to show what they have been as much as since buying Intel’s server enterprise unit, in addition to to indicate off the server platforms they’re growing for the Xeon 6 household. Altogether, the businesses had two server platforms on show – a compact 2S system, and a bigger 2S system with important enlargement capabilities – in addition to a pair of single-socket designs from Tyan.

Probably the most primary platform that MiTAC needed to present is their TX86-E7148 (Katmai Cross), a half-width 1U system that is the successor to Intel’s D50DNP platform. Katmai Cross has two CPU sockets, helps as much as 2 TB of DDR5-6400 RDIMMs over 16 slots (8 per CPU), and has two low-profile PCIe 5.0 x16 slots. Like its predecessor, this platform is geared toward mainstream servers that don’t want a variety of storage or room to deal with cumbersome add-in playing cards like AI accelerators.

The corporate’s different platform is TX77A-E7142 (Deer Creek Cross), a significantly extra critical providing that replaces Intel’s M50FCP platform. This board can home as much as 4 TB of DDR5-6400 RDIMMs over 32 slots (16 per CPU with 2DPC), 4 PCIe 5.0 x16 slots, one PCIe 5.0 x8 slot, two OCP 3.0 slots, and 24 hot-swap U.2 bays. Deer Creek Cross can be utilized each for general-purpose workloads, high-performance storage, in addition to workloads that require GPUs or different special-purpose accelerators.

In the meantime Tyan had the single-socket Thunder CX GC73A-B5660 on show. That system helps as much as 2 TB of DDR5-6400 reminiscence over 16 RDIMMs and affords two PCIe 5.0 x16 slots, one PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slot, two OCP 3.0 slots, and 12 hot-swappable U.2 drive bays.

Lastly, Tyan’s Thunder HX S5662 is an HPC server board particularly designed to deal with a number of AI accelerators and different massive PCIe playing cards. This board helps one Xeon 6 6700 processor, as much as 1 TB of reminiscence over eight DDR5-6400 RDIMMs, and has 5 tradiitonal PCIe 5.0 x16 slots in addition to two PCIe 5.0 x2 M.2 slots for storage.

MiTAC is anticipated to begin shipments of those new Xeon 6 motherboards within the coming months, as Intel rolls out its next-generation datacenter CPUs. Pricing of those platforms is unknown for now, however count on it to be similar to present servers.
