This is a 1U Super Micro server built on the "Cranberry Lake"
platform with the "San Clemente" chipset. It was launched yesterday but
was overshadowed by the "Stoakley"
platform 5400 series chipset and 45nm CPU launch. What's unique about
this Intel based server is that it doesn't use FBDIMMs so it has the highest
performance/watt metric of any dual-processor x86 server on the market when
using 3 GHz 80W 5400 series "Harpertown" CPUs. The limitation is that it
only has 6 registered DDR2-667 DIMM slots (compared to 16 fully-buffered
DDR2-800 DIMM slots on the 5400 series) and it lacks the PCI-Express generation
2 bus slots which isn't a problem in many applications.
Super Micro's 6015WT-INF is a unique 2-in-1 1U server with two
dual-processor motherboards sharing a single chassis and power supply. It
is one of Super Micro's best sellers and it's based on two small form factor
5400 series dual-processor motherboards. This 1U system can pack 16 45-nm
Intel 5400 series CPU cores and a total of 16 fully buffered DDR2-800 DIMMs.
On the left is the small form factor Super Micro X7DWT 5400 series
"Seaburg" chipset motherboard used in the "Stoakley" platform. On the
right is the Super Micro X7DCL-3 "San Clemente" chipset motherboard.
On the left is the Super Micro X7SBi 3210 "Bigby-P" chipset
motherboard which is very similar in architecture to Intel's X38 chipset.
It is a single processor platform that uses 3000 series entry-level server chips
which are essentially desktop processors. On the right is the opposite end
of the spectrum with the Super Micro X7QC3 quad-processor 7300 series chipset.
