Product Overview NVMe Technology
The R28N-F2O is built with a backplane board enabling four 2.5" NVMe drive bays on the front of the chassis. With higher IOPS, lower latency, and lower power consumption, the NVMe technology is designed to deliver much faster data transfer performance between a storage device and the processor. Compared to other of types of storage connectivity, NVMe has up to:
6x larger bandwidth than SATA III.
3x lower latency that SATA III.
4x larger bandwidth than SAS3.
7x lower latency than SAS3.

Supports the Intel Xeon E5-2600 V3 Processors
Based on the Haswell microarchitecture, this Intel processor family brings a whole new set of performance boosting features. In addition to the usual boost in frequencies and core numbers over the previous generation, the Intel Xeon E5-2600 V3 product family is the first in the industry to support the new DDR4 memory technology.
Moreover, these new processors include encryption performance overhead reduction features, and technologies improving run time and migration VM integrity.

DDR4 Memory Support
The Intel Xeon E5-1600 / 2600 V3 product families are the first wave of server processors to support the DDR4 memory technology. Compared to DDR3, this new generation brings:
+50% bandwidth performance.
-35% power consumption @2DPC.
-50% power consumption @3DPC.

Get the Memory Performance Edge
On the previous server platforms from Intel, the maximum supported memory frequency has always been automatically downgraded by design when more DIMMs were being added on a server motherboard. As this trade-off between performance and capacity represents a dilemma to many memory-hungry server applications, GIGABYTE offers a unique solution. All our motherboards based on the LGA 2011-3 socket support by default a maximum frequency of 2133 MHz in any memory configuration.

Easy BIOS Update
Because updating your BIOS to a newer version can be a troublesome experience, GIGABYTE has developed this integrated function (no additional software to install) that lets you update the BIOS of your server / workstation motherboard(s):
Without having to install CPUs, memory, drives, operating system, etc.
Without having to power on the system (but a power supply must be connected).
One board at a time via our IPMI 2.0 web interface.
Multiple boards simultaneously via command line.

Remote System Management
The motherboard of this system is equipped with an onboard Aspeed AST2400 controller, providing comprehensive remote system monitoring with a whole set of management features, such as:
Remote Boot & Reset.
Remote Image Mounting.
Full Control Over Network, Users, Services, etc.
Complete System Monitoring & Diagnostics.

All IR Power Design
The CPU and memory power delivery of our motherboards is ensured by industry-leading IR Digital PWM and IR PowIRstage IC controllers. These components guarantee a super stable operating environment and allow the processors and the memory to deliver their maximum performance.

OS-CON Capacitors
With a service life of a minimum of 50??00 hours, our server motherboards are built with ultra-long lasting components for the highest reliability possible.

High End Ferrite Core Chokes
The top quality chokes we install on our server motherboards also contribute to an ultra-stable power delivery to the CPU and the memory. Features • Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 V3 / V4 product family.
• 4 x 2.5" hot-swappable NVMe bays.
• 20 x 2.5" hot-swappable SAS/SATA bays.
• 2 x GbE LAN ports (Intel® I350-BT2).
• 2 x 1200W 80 PLUS Platinum redundant power supply.
