The GIGABYTE SERVER system design and engineering expertise has been applied to the Intel Xeon Scalable series to meet the increasingly diverse requirements of the industry, from entry-level HPC to large scale clusters. CPU Key Features ComputeUp to 28 cores Memory6 channels I/O48 PCIe lanes StorageIntel Optane™ supported NetworkIntel Omni-Path supported The Intel Xeon Scalable platform brings improved features and functionality at the host and fabric level. These enable performance improvements natively on chip and for future extensibility through compute, network and storage peripherals. Memory Optimization Memory speed of up to 2666MHz Up to 12 DIMMs per socket Storage Built in support for VROC Intel Optane supported Networking Intel Omni-Path supported Increased Memory Performance The CPU architecture allows for up to 6 memory channels per socket and a bandwidth of up to 2666MHz. The architecture is future-ready with the potential to support Apache Pass DIMM. Memory capacity benefits with up to available 12 DIMMs per socket, which represents a 50% generation-on-generation increase. Innovative Storage, Security and Networking Storage VROC Innovative storage options through Intel Optane™ low-latency, non-volatile design. NVMe SKU systems ship with a Virtual Raid-On-CPU (VROC) module as standard to enable software raid on connected U.2 SSDs Support for SATA-DOM is available to allow for standalone boot and diagnostics direct through SATA connections on the board. Security Integrated QAT for improved compression and security with software. On the hardware side, extra encryption on-board is enabled by TPMs available from GIGABYTE. Networking Fully compatible with Mellanox networking products. Improved networking through Omni-Path interconnect fabric as a CPU-integrated or standalone device. High Density HPC Supports 8 x Computing Cards Able to support up to 8 double slot GPGPU or co-processor cards, the G291 enables world-leading HPC within a 2U chassis. The G291 is ideal for accelerating development of AI, deep learning, real time analytics, programs in scientific simulation and modeling, engineering, visualization & rendering, data mining, and much more.
