GIGABYTE Technology has released its latest products from the Server lineup. Among them, the GA-9SISL is GIGABYTE's first server motherboard based on Intel's new server-optimized Atom processor family. The Intel Atom processor C2750 is part of the 2nd generation of Intel Atom SoC for servers. This octo-core processsor boasts performance up to 7 times higher, memory capacity up to 8 times higher, and energy efficiency up to 6 times higher than the previous Atom generation. In addition, this processor also includes datacenter class features:

  • Improved data integrity and system uptime through ECC memory support.
  • Faster and richer virtualization usages thanks to the Intel VT-x Technology.
  • Stronger processing and management of storage and network loads.
  • Transparent and flexible integration through x86 compatibility.

With the computing power and energy consumption ratio offered by the Intel Atom C2750 processor, the GA-9SISL also features:

  • 4 x regular DIMM slots supporting ECC memory.
  • 1 x PCIe x16 slot for additional storage or network features.
  • 4 x Gigabit LAN ports for flexible network configurations.
  • 1 separate management LAN port to access the board's remote management functions.
  • A board placement optimized for rackmount integration. In addition, its rear interface includes buttons and LEDs designed to match the maintenance workflow of such integration.
  • 6 storage ports, which can be complemented with a storage PCIe card.

This combination of features, states GIGABYTE, makes the GA-9SISL a perfect solution to build microservers, lightweight redundant configurations, web hosting arrays, network appliances, and more.

The other server products released by GIGABYTE are existing products with variations in their specifications aimed at answering different user needs in different usage models.

GA-7PESVL

The GA-7PESVL includes a dual socket platform, large storage connectivity, four PCIe x16 slots, and GIGABYTE's complete set of remote board management features:

  • Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 and  E5-2600 V2 product families
  • 8 x RDIMM/UDIMM ECC DIMM slots
  • 2 x GbE LAN ports (Intel I210)
  • 2 x SATA III 6Gb/s + 8 x SATA II 3Gb/s
  • Aspeed AST2300 remote management controller

GA-7PXSL1

With an ATX form factor, this dual socket motherboard is the quad Gigabit Ethernal LAN version of GIGABYTE’s existing GA-7PXSL. This product is designed with standard sockets and is compatible with the socket 2011 cooling devices from the retail market. 

Moreover, its socket placement for an ATX board is designed for a chassis airflow that will cool both processors with the same efficiency. The heat of one will not be transferred to the other and impair its operating capabilities. The GA-7PXSL1 is designed to build CPU-based render farms, slim computing servers, or compact workstations. Additional features include:

  • Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 & E5-2600 V2 product families
  • 8 x RDIMM/UDIMM ECC DIMM slots
  • ATX form factor
  • 4 x GbE LAN ports (Intel 82574L)
  • 2 x USB 3.0, 2 x USB 2.0 ports
  • 2 x SATA III 6Gb/s + 6 x SATA II 3Gb/s
  • 2 x USB 2.0, 1 x audio headers
  • Aspeed AST2300 remote management controller

GA-7PESVL

The GA-7PESVL includes a dual socket platform, large storage connectivity, four PCIe x16 slots, and GIGABYTE's set of remote board management features:

  • Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 and  E5-2600 V2 product families
  • 8 x RDIMM/UDIMM ECC DIMM slots
  • 2 x GbE LAN ports (Intel I210)
  • 2 x SATA III 6Gb/s + 8 x SATA II 3Gb/s
  • Aspeed AST2300 remote management controller

GS-R22PDT

This rackmount system is a variant of GIGABYTE’s GS-R22PDP with an upgraded power supply unit. Coming with a redundant 1600W solution certified 80 PLUS Platinum, this product offers a larger power consumption headroom for more power hungry processors, memory modules, storage drives, and/or expansion cards. The GS-R22PDT is a high density multi-nodes barebone featuring:

  • 2U - 4 nodes high density rack with front access to the node trays
  • Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 and 2600 V2 product families
  • 8 x LGA 2011 sockets
  • Intel C602 chipset
  • 64 x DDR3 ECC slots
  • 8 x GbE LAN ports (Intel I350-AM2)
  • 16 x 2.5-inch hot-swappable HDD/SSD bays
  • 1600W 80 PLUS Platinum redundant PSU
