Product Overview

2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Family Ready

GIGABYTE’s servers are fully ready to support the second generation of Intel® Xeon® Scalable Family processors, codenamed “Cascade Lake”, which bring the following major enhancements: Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory: Built-in support for this revolutionary new product based on Intel’s 3D Xpoint technology, Overall Performance: Higher CPU frequencies, improved turbo profiles vs. prior-gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, Increased DDR4 Memory Speed & Capacity: Up to 2933MHz (1 DIMM per channel on some SKUs), 16Gb based DIMM supported, Intel Deep Learning Boost: Significantly accelerates inference performance for deep learning workloads optimized to use VNNI (Vector Neural Network Instructions), Security: Hardware mitigations for Meltdown / Spectre security vulnerabilities.


Intel® Xeon® Scalable Family Processors

GIGABYTE’s Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor family servers are available in dual socket configurations, and are compatible with the full family* of different SKUs (Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum) that are workload optimized to support different applications, from enterprise IT database, cloud and storage to the most high-demand HPC workloads. * SKU compatibility will depend on the maximum CPU TDP supported for each system, please refer to each product’s specification page for further information


Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory Ready

GIGABYTE’s second generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable family servers come ready to support Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory, a revolutionary new product that re-defines traditional memory & storage architectures by enabling a large persistent memory tier between DRAM and SSDs, that’s higher capacity than DRAM and faster than SSDs, enabling the user to bring more data closer to the CPU for faster time for insight. Optane DC Persistent Memory Modules (“DCPMM”) integrate seamlessly into existing DDR4 DIMM slots, and use Intel’s 3D Xpoint memory technology, which unlike DRAM retains data after power is removed. The modules will be available in capacities up to 512GB – a massive increase compared to the current maximum 128GB of industry-leading DDR4 memory sticks – and can be addressed by the OS or application either as memory (Memory Mode) or storage (Application Direct Mode).


High Density Inference Engine

Expertise in thermal and mechanical design allows GIGABYTE to offer some of the highest GPU density server products on the market. The G291-2G0 is able to accommodate up to 16 x NVIDIA Tesla P4 accelerator cards in a 2U chassis, making it ideal to be used as a high-density inference engine in the data center for applications such as speech recognition, image and video processing, recommender systems used in online shopping & video streaming etc.


NVIDIA Tesla P4 Support

GIGABYTE’s G291-2G0 has been optimized to work with NVIDIA’s Tesla P4, one of the world’s most popular inference accelerators. The Tesla P4’s small form factor and 50W/75W power footprint design delivers 22 TOPs of inference performance with INT8 operations to slash latency by 15X. It also provides an incredible 60X better energy efficiency than CPUs for deep learning inference workloads, letting hyper scale customers meet the exponential growth in demand for AI applications. Deep learning models can also be deployed even faster by combining the P4 together with TensorRT, NVIDIA’s library created for optimizing deep learning models for production deployment, and NVIDIA DeepStream SDK, which taps into the power of Pascal GPUs to simultaneously decode and analyze video streams.


Generation-On-Generation Innovation

GIGABYTE continues to innovate with generation-on-generation improvements, responding to market needs with user-friendly advancements, including: Increasing overall storage capacity by utilizing space beside the front HDD cage. This enables an optional 2 internal extra SSD (7mm) to be deployed.


Optimized for High TDP

GIGABYTE systems are thermally designed with the highest rated CPU SKUs in mind so that top performance is enabled which ever Xeon Scalable CPU you choose.


Carefully Selected Components

GIGABYTE’s passive components are carefully selected to guarantee a stable operating environment and allow the processors and the memory to deliver their maximum performance. GIGABYTE’s server motherboards are built with long lasting components for a high degree of reliability and durability.


Ease of Deployment and Management

GIGABYTE continues to be responsive to market needs and to create user-friendly solutions, including: Tool-less rail kit included as a default across all new server models, Supplying multiple connector options and tools where appropriate.


Efficient, Reliable Power Supply

GIGABYTE SERVER Xeon Scalable servers are designed to guarantee high conversion efficiency regardless of load. Redundant 80 Plus ‘Titanium’ or ‘Platinum’ PSUs, combined with GIGABYTE’s precision engineering, translates to super efficient power usage which maximizes the system’s power : performance ratio and reduces OPEX for the user.


Intelligent Power Management Features

SCMP is a GIGABYTE patented feature that will automatically force the system’s CPU to enter ULFM (ultra-low frequency mode for minimum power consumption) when the BMC is alerted to a PSU fault or error (such as power loss, power surge, overheating or a fan problem). This feature will prevent shutdown in systems with less than 1 + 1 PSU redundancy when one PSU is lost. In a 2U 4 Node server, only two nodes will be switched to low power mode, while two remaining nodes can continue normal operation. When the fault is resolved or the PSU is replaced, the system will automatically return to normal power mode.


GIGABYTE Management Console (AMI MegaRAC SP-X)

This GIGABYTE server product utilizes a AMI MegaRAC SP-X platform for BMC server management, with a feature rich and easy to use browser-based graphical user interface.


Dynamic Fan Speed Control

GIGABYTE servers are enabled with dynamic fan speed adjustment. Individual fan speed will be automatically adjusted according to the system’s current temperature (according to CPU, DIMM, M.2, HDD, GPU temperature sensors), to achieve the best cooling and power efficiency. When the BMC detects a temperature change, fan speed will be automatically adjusted accordingly. Fan speed profiles may also be manually created and edited* when necessary according to the user’s custom requirements.


VMware Technology Alliance Partner

Recognized as an Advanced Partner in VMware’s Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program enables GIGABYTE to rapidly develop and certify joint solutions or go-to-market products that leverage VMware virtualization and cloud solutions, enabling our customers to modernize their data centers and implement IT infrastructure and application services with speed, agility, and cost optimization.
