Supermicro Extends The Whisper-Quiet Product Line With DP Xeon 1600MHz FSB Workstation » read source
Super Micro Computer, Inc. announced the addition of the dual- processor SuperWorkstation 7045A-WT to its whisper-quiet product line. Supermicro's optimized thermal design achieves superior cooling efficiency. This efficiency provides headroom for the acoustical optimization that enables these SuperWorkstations to operate at a level quieter than a whisper-quiet library.
This high-performance yet quiet workstation runs at the fastest FSB available today. With support for 1.5-volt 800MHz FB-DIMM memory and PCI-Express 2.0, the 7045A-WT delivers top-of-the-line performance, energy efficiency, memory capacity and I/O bandwidth. The control panel on the SuperWorkstation 7045A-WT provides you with system monitoring and control. LEDs indicate system power, HDD activity, network activity, overheat condition and power supply failure. A main power button and a system reset button are also included.
"Our 7045A-WT provides full 1600MHz FSB performance while saving energy with low-power 1.5V FBDIMMs and a low-noise, earth-friendly, 88%+ peak efficiency 865-watt power supply with redundant cooling," commented Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. "With this system, our customers not only benefit with up to a 30%* boost in overall system performance and up to 40 watts* energy savings, but also enjoy a comfortable work environment with 28dB whisper-quiet operation."
At the heart of the SuperWorkstation 7045A-WT lies the X7DWA-N, a dual processor serverboard based on the Intel 5400 chipset and designed to provide maximum performance. Below are the main features of the X7DWA-N. The X7DWA-N has eight 240-pin DIMM slots that can support up to 64 GB of FBD (Fully Buffered DIMM) ECC DDR2-800/667/533 SDRAM. The memory operates in an interleaved confi guration and requires requires modules of the same size and speed to be installed two at a time.
Powered by Supermicro's new X7DWA-N motherboard based on the Intel 5400 (Seaburg) chipset, the SuperWorkstation 7045A-WT supports two full-bandwidth PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slots for high-performance graphics, 7.1 high-definition audio and dual IEEE 1394a ports, making it an ideal high-performance graphics/CAD engineering workstation platform.
PCI-Express 2.0 doubles the I/O bandwidth to 5 Gb/s per lane from 2.5 Gb/s and is fully compatible with PCI-E 1.1 graphics cards. This low-noise, high-performance workstation also supports the latest 45nm 1600MHz FSB quad-core Xeon 5400 or dual-core 5200 series processors and a flexible Universal I/O (UIO) slot for easy and cost- effective upgrades to dual-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet, 4-port Gigabit Ethernet, InfiniBand, or multiple internal and external SAS options.
Supermicro Server Building Block Solutions offer exceptional flexibility and feature advantages. Facilitating excellent storage expansion, the 7045A-WT supports up to 6 terabytes of hot- plug SATA storage capacity and a total of eight hot-swap 3.5-inch drive bays.
