SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept 24, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ --

Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMCI), a leader in application optimized, high performance server and workstation solutions, today launched its C2SBX workstation designed for maximum graphics and memory performance in a uni-processor (UP) platform. Besides two PCI Express 2.0 slots and DDR3 1333MHz memory support, the C2SBX also provides connectivity for digital media and outstanding I/O bandwidth.

"By doubling both the memory and I/O bandwidth, the C2SBX delivers excellent graphics and memory performance," said Charles Liang, CEO and president of Supermicro. "Powered by the C2SBX, our new SuperWorkstation 5035B-T features a quiet 465-watt power supply for operation at less than 43 dB, making it perfect for office environments."

DDR3 memory provides data transfers up to 1.6 Gb/second, which is twice the bandwidth of DDR2 (at 0.8 Gb/s). In addition, 1.5-volt DDR3 modules consume less power compared to 1.8-volt DDR2 modules for increased performance-per-watt.

The C2SBX also features PCI-Express 2.0, which doubles the I/O bandwidth to 5 Gb/s from 2.5 Gb/s. Conveniently, existing PCI-Express 1.1 graphics cards are fully compatible with the new PCI-Express 2.0 slots.

Other important C2SBX features include two IEEE 1394 headers for digital media connectivity, on-board high-definition 7.1 audio and two PCI-X slots. As with the predecessor PDSGE platform, Supermicro continues to provide customers with high-performance PCI-X expansion on its workstation platforms.
