ASUS presents the GPU server ESC8000 G3 supporting up to eight double deck GPU cards as well as optimized thermal design for both CPUs and GPUs. ESC8000 G3 is the latest supercomputer based on Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product family, featuring front parallel redundant fan placement and dedicated air-tunnel for individual GPUs, six hot-swappable 2.5” SATA HDD/SSD bays, 2+1 80 PLUS Platinum 1600W CRPS , 8 PCI-E Gen3 x16 and 2 PCI-E Gen3 x8 expansion slots. ESC8000 G3 is targeted to hit 20Tera floating points with the latest generation GPU cards and achieve a better performance result in Top500 and Green500.
ESC8000 G3 is equipped with dual Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product family CPUs, 24 DDR4 DIMMs and support up to eight dual-slot GPGPU; thus delivers high density computing power with scalable expansion capability and an intelligent thermal solution, making it an ideal choice for the applications in the field of life and medical science, engineering science, financial modeling and virtualization.
The ESC8000 G3 supports up to eight PCI-E Gen3 x16 slots for high expandability, compatible with versatile expansion cards, especially in supporting up-to-date Intel® Xeon Phi™ series, NVIDIA Tesla and GRIDTM Family, as well as AMD FirePro S Series of GPU accelerators. Initially, high-density computing is designed specifically to pack greater processing power into a rack. In ESC8000 G3, it can carry up to 8 double-deck GPUs offering extreme high density and parallel computing power. On running eight AMD FirePro GPU cards in ESC8000 G3, ESC8000 G3 could perform to the extreme up to 20 Teraflops. In addition, there are PCI-E Gen3 slots (x8 links) for Low Profile HBA and proprietary networking cards using FDR and 10G interface.
To provide the optimized thermal solution, ESC8000 G3 has the front parallel redundant fan placement which creates dedicated air tunnels for individual CPU and GPU; four fans in 1U height for CPU while eight fans in 2-3U height for GPU. Among the eight fans for GPU, four fans in front side play the role as the back-up solution for another four running fans, offering the best thermal solution in a power-saving way.
The ESC8000 G3 is equipped with two 1600W 80 PLUS Platinum level redundant power supplies with VR power efficiency up to 95% for energy savings, while the hot swappable design reduces power loss, improves power efficiency and saves more TCO for users.
