Supermicro world record performance benchmarks for SYS-1028GR-TR with Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors announced at Fall 2015 STAC Summit

3 Nov 2015 Chicago - Super Micro Computer Inc.'s SYS-1028GR-TR supporting dual Intel Xeon processor E5-2697 v3 (Haswell EP) 14-core at 2.6GHz and dual Intel Xeon Phi 7120P (Knights Corner) coprocessors has set the new STAC-A2 world speed record. The 1U high density form factor SYS-1028GR-TR is optimized for high performance computing applications with support for dual Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 and up to 3x Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. It has achieved world record benchmark results, showing the solution's ability to accelerate computation time for financial risk calculations.

"Supermicro's 1U SuperServer optimized for Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors is fine tuned to achieve the highest performance in its class and the STAC-A2 world record benchmark is an independent result that highlights our solution's capability", stated Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. "For applications in need of lowest-latency or highest density for parallel processing, our Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 based Green Computing servers are exactly optimized to maximize performance with highest energy efficiency."

"Intel's collaboration with Supermicro has once again set a new STAC-A2 World Speed Record benchmark using Supermicro's 1U compute-dense form factor based on the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v3 product family and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors", stated Hugo Saleh, director of HPC Marketing and Industry Development, Intel Enterprise and High Performance Computing Platform Group. "Financial services developers are able to address the most demanding workloads in computational finance and algorithmic trading using open standards based programming techniques and the rich features of Intel Parallel Studio XE 2015, ensuring the long term viability of their codes on future servers and workstations."

The STAC Report of these benchmark results is available at https://stacresearch.com/INTC151028 .
