Supermicro® Debuts SuperServer® And SuperBlade® Solutions Supporting New AMD Opteron 6300 Series Processor

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server technology and green computing, has upgraded its line of A+ servers with the just released AMD (NYSE: AMD) Opteron™ 6300 Series processors. The new A+ server and tower platforms deliver up to 24 percent higher performance over prior generation solutions and maximize processor density and core counts to support more VMs for public and private cloud deployments. Performance per watt is up to 40 percent higher with intelligent thermal/power monitoring and management, enabling datacenters running robust large-scale software systems to maximize performance while lowering overall TCO. With dual-processor (DP) and multi-processor (MP) architectures, Supermicro ups the performance bar for data center and high-performance computing (HPC) cluster applications.
