Sizzling on the heels of Intel’s newest Ice Lake-SP third Technology Xeon Scalable processor launch, GIGABYTE Server has listed three new motherboards designed for server use. The GIGABYTE Server MU92-TU1, the MU92-TU0, and MU72-SU0 all supply completely different ranges of options and controllers and are primarily based on Intel’s C621A chipset for third Gen Xeon Scalable. Two are constructed on the E-ATX kind issue, with one ATX mannequin, with options various between sixteen reminiscence slots, completely different twin Ethernet configurations, and all include an built-in ASPEED BMC controller.
The Intel Xeon Scalable processor stack is designed to be used in servers, with some probably skilled purposes alongside the same old Cloud and Datacenter operations. With some new refinements of its 10 nm course of for Enterprise conditions, together with the usage of SGX and a focus for custom-made crypto acceleration. There are various Intel Xeon Scalable Ice Lake-SP SKUs within the product stack, together with the highest tier 40-core Xeon Platinum 8380 mannequin the best way right down to the entry-level Xeon Silver 4309 mannequin.

To enrich the third Technology Intel Xeon Scalable for Enterprise launch, GIGABYTE has readied up three new motherboards. Based mostly on the Intel C621A chipset and all utilizing one LGA4189 socket, GIGABYTE Server MU92-TU0, the MU92-TU1, and MU72-SU0 embrace some attention-grabbing and notable options.
MU92-TU0 and MU92-TU1
Beginning with the E-ATX sized pairing, the MU92-TU0 and MU92-TU1 each embrace seven full-length PCIe 4.0 slots, which may function at x16/x0/x16/x0/x16/x0/x16, or x16/x8/x8/x8/x8/x8/x8, with sixteen reminiscence slots that can help as much as 2 TB of 3DS RDIMM/LRDIMM DDR4-3200 reminiscence, with common LRDIMMs of as much as 128 GB and RDIMM reminiscence as much as 64 GB additionally supported. For storage, each the MU92-TU0 and MU92-TU1 embrace a single PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slot, with two SATA ports and two SlimSAS ports with help for as much as eight SATA ports. Each fashions additionally embrace a typical 24-pin ATX 12 V motherboard energy enter, two 8-pin 12 ATX CPU energy inputs, seven 4-pin fan headers, an Intel VROC connector, a PMBus, and an IPMB connector.

Aesthetically the identical with GIGABYTE’s blue PCB, the one distinction between the MU92-TU0 and MU92-TU1 is the MU92-TU1 is utilizing ASPEED’s newest ARM-based AST2600 BMC controller. The marginally lesser spec MU92-TU0 makes use of an ASPEED AST2500 BMC controller, whereas each fashions embrace twin 10 GBase-T Ethernet, which is powered by an Intel X710-AT2 controller. Additionally current on each fashions are two USB 3.0 Sort-A ports, a D-Sub video output and MLAN port for the BMC, a COM port, and an ID button with LED.
The GIGABYTE Server MU72-SU0 is utilizing an ATX kind issue that includes a single LGA4189 socket. It consists of eight reminiscence slots, with help for as much as 2 TB of 3DS RDIMM/LRDIMM DDR4-3200 reminiscence, and common LRDIMMs of 128 GB and RDIMMs as much as 64 GB for servers that require much less reminiscence capability. There is a complete of seven full-length PCIe 4.0 slots, with supported configurations together with each x16/x0/x16/x0/x16/x0/x16 and x16/x8/x8/x8/x8/x8/x8, with storage choices together with one PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slot, and three SlimSAS connectors which permit for as much as twelve SATA ports.

The MU72-SU0 makes use of an ASPEED AST2600 BMC controller, with a devoted administration Ethernet port and D-Sub video output, with twin Gigabit Ethernet, which is pushed by a pair of Intel I210-AT Gigabit controllers. The rear panel additionally consists of 4 USB 3.0 Sort-A ports, a COM port, and an ID button with LED. Different avenues of connectivity across the board embrace seven 4-pin fan headers, a TPM header, and an Intel VROC connector. Offering energy to the board is one 24-pin 12 V ATX motherboard energy, one 8-pin 12 V ATX CPU energy, and a 6-pin PCIe energy enter designed to ship extra energy to the full-length PCIe slots.
It’s unknown when the GIGABYTE Server MU92-TU1, MU92-TU0, and MU72-SU0 are prone to hit retail cabinets on the time of writing, however given the Ice Lake-SP processors at the moment are launched, we do not anticipate will probably be too lengthy. We additionally do not at the moment have any pricing data.
