5U 8-Way and 1U, 2U & 4U 4-Way SuperServers(R) Support New 10-Core Intel(R) Xeon(R) Processor E7 Family-based Platform

SAN JOSE, California, April 5, 2011 - Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in server
technology innovation and green computing, today announced the industry's
widest selection of server solutions supporting the new generation of 10-Core
Intel(R) Xeon(R) Processor E7-8800 / 4800 product families (Formerly
codenamed Westmere-EX). This includes the SuperServer(R) 5086B-TRF (5U) for
8-Way, and 8016B-6F/TF (1U), 8026B-6RF/TRF (2U), 8046B-6RF/TRF (4U) for 4-Way
server systems. These Supermicro offerings represent the most comprehensive
selection of 8 / 4-Way server solutions supporting the Intel(R) Xeon(R)
Processor E7 family-based platform.


"Supermicro's 8-way SuperServer(R) systems with new 10-core CPU support
up to 2 TB of ECC DDR3 memory, ten PCI-E 2.0 expansion slots, up to 24 2.5"
hard drives, and offer energy efficient designs," said Charles Liang,
president and CEO of Supermicro. "These solutions deliver improved computing
speed, I/O performance, expandability, security, and power efficiency over
previous SuperServer(R) generations. Our ability to deliver solutions for
customers requiring large databases, heavy transaction processing, and
complex technical computing formulations is significantly enhanced with these
new systems."

"Customers continue to demand increasing amounts of processing power,
large memory footprints, and higher levels of security," said Boyd Davis, VP
and GM of Data Center Group Marketing at Intel. "Intel is excited to see the
innovation that Supermicro is bringing to customers to meet their growing
needs through its platforms based on the Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor E7

Supermicro's new SuperServer(R) 5086B-TRF system provides up to 2 TB of
registered ECC DDR3 memory in 64 DIMMs, 10 PCI-E Gen 2.0 expansion slots,
(2+2) redundant Gold Level power supplies, and up to 24 2.5" hard drives in
5U to deliver exceptional density. With the new 10-Core Intel(R) Xeon(R)
processor E7 family-based platform this system offers an unprecedented 80 CPU
cores in 5U. The SuperServer(R) 5086B-TRF offers SAS and hardware RAID
through many HBA card options. Users can integrate up to four GPUs to take
advantage of the exceptionally large memory footprint to address heretofore
unmanageable large scale computing projects. These new platforms also provide
onboard IPMI 2.0 with remote media and KVM-over-LAN support for optimal

The SuperServer(R) 8016B-6F/TF (1U), 8026B-6RF/TRF (2U), and
8046B-6RF/TRF (4U) all support up to 1 TB of registered ECC DDR3 memory via
32 DIMM slots. With Gold Level power supply efficiency, optimal cooling
designs, and 90%+ power efficient VRMs, these energy-efficient servers
deliver breakthrough performance-per-watt. The full range of Intel(R) Xeon(R)
Processor E7 family-based platform SKUs are supported, from performance
130-watt SKUs to high-density rack-optimized 95-watt SKUs, optimizing these
systems for diverse customer environments.
