Asus ESC4000 G2 Series – World’s first servers with Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor and Nvidia Tesla K20/K20X GPUs announced
Asus today announced the launch of world’s first servers to support the Intel Xeon Phi 5110P coprocessor and Nvidia next-gen Kepler-based Tesla K20/K20X GPUs. The Asus ESC4000 G2 Series enables 4TFLOPS peak computing power with up to four coprocessors/GPUs. It is compatible with Intel Xeon Phi 5110P coprocessors based on Intel Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture and further works with Nvidia Tesla K20/K20X GPU accelerators, which are tailored for parallel computing applications. Quad coprocessor/GPU support on the ESC4000 G2 Series translates into truly extreme hybrid computing power, added to by eight PCI Express 3.0 slots for flexible expandability and InfiniBand to enable 56Gb/s cross-node data transfer.
Dual 1620W 80 PLUS Platinum power supplies offer great stability, reduced downtime, and easier maintenance. Asus is also offering 5U tower servers and workstations in the ESC2000 G2 and ESC1000 G2 Series, which focus on parallel processing power and energy efficiency. ESC2000 G2 Series GPU servers and workstations can accommodate dual CPUs and quad GPUs. A demand for extreme computing power exists in fields such as energy, climate modeling, weather simulation, financial analysis, life sciences, and digital content creation.
