Supermicro® Hyper-Speed Servers Accelerate Low-Latency Applications with up to 30% Performance Gains

New HFT-Optimized Server Solutions Debut at HFT World, New York

NEW YORK, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server technology and green computing, debuts a new line of ultra high performance "Hyper-Speed" servers this week at High Frequency Trading World, New York. These new 2U and 4U/Tower platforms deliver unparalleled performance for HFT applications by maximizing processing power and precisely tuning hardware and firmware to attain up to 30% lower latency over competitive solutions while still maintaining high reliability as a primary design focus. Built on Supermicro's X9DAX series dual-processor (DP) motherboards and SC829BTQ chassis with best-in-class thermals, Hyper-Speed systems allow the highest performance Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 series processors (up to 150W TDP) to be tuned for even higher performance and run at peak performance in a dense 2U form factor for colocation installations. Systems architecture is designed for maximum airflow and custom heatsinks provide optimal thermal distribution for mission critical reliability. Additional performance tuning features include adjustable onboard frequencies, voltages and memory latencies as well as firmware optimizations to further lower latency.
