At SC22, Inspur confirmed off new AMD EPYC Genoa platforms, in addition to a giant liquid-cooled OAM server. The corporate additionally took the chance to indicate off its new naming conference for next-generation servers.
Inspur Reveals AMD EPYC Genoa and Main OAM Liquid Cooled Server at SC22
These servers had been featured in our latest SC22 recap video that yow will discover right here:
The primary server we noticed was the Inspur NF5180G7. It is a 1U twin socket AMD EPYC 9004 Genoa server platform. The entrance of the unit we noticed at SC22 was a 10x 2.5″ configuration.
Right here we are able to see the massive space between the followers and the CPU sockets. That may be a pattern we’re seeing to accommodate bigger heatsinks.
Behind that, we are able to see twin OCP NIC 3.0 slots in addition to a DC-SCM slot with the administration processor. There are additionally plenty of cables to supply PCIe Gen5 lanes all through the chassis. This instance had not simply the twin OCP NIC 3.0 slots, but in addition three riser slots.
We additionally seen that there was further room behind the drives for cable administration and including issues to reinforce storage capabilities.
The 2U server variant is the Inspur NF5280G7. That is one other dual-socket AMD EPYC Genoa server.
Maybe probably the most notable distinction right here is the CPU heatsinks. Most distributors we’ve seen make the most of the “winged” heatsink method to chill the CPUs as much as 400W TDP. Inspur is holding the air-cooled heatsink over the CPU sockets.
Right here is one other angle, together with the enlargement slots. This makes use of the identical motherboard because the 1u, but it surely has further enlargement and riser choices simply because of the top of the chassis.
The brand new naming conference is “G7” for Technology 7. It will get a bit extra complicated with the Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon launch since there shall be not less than two Inspur NF5280G7’s, one AMD, and one Intel. There shall be further particulars on the total SKU on which processor is used. By the sixth technology, Inspur used M6 technology for Intel, A6 technology for AMD EPYC methods, and R6 for Ampere.
Inspur’s Liquid Cooled OAM Machine
Inspur has been constructing OAM and the Common Baseboard (UBB) normal platforms for a while. At SC22, we had been in a position to see a liquid-cooled model with giant fast disconnect fittings.
The entrance fittings will not be the one ones. We will see that there are 4 extra nozzles on the rear.
If this platform appears acquainted, we reviewed the Inspur NF5488A5 the 8x NVIDIA A100 model of this a while in the past.
Right here is the rear of that system with followers as a substitute of liquid cooling.
Followers and heatsinks made up a considerable amount of that system’s quantity and weight, making it a really perfect candidate for liquid cooling as accelerator TDPs proceed to rise.
General, it was nice to see the brand new Inspur options at SC22. We hope to see the corporate’s new Genoa and Sapphire Rapids methods quickly, however there are just a few different fascinating Inspur opinions that we’ll have this month that aren’t from these product strains.
