(Nasdaq: SMCI), a leader in application-optimized, high performance server and workstation solutions, has announced full support for the latest Quad-Core AMD Opteron(TM) 1300 Series processors on its latest single-processor A+ Servers on display at Computex Taipei 2008 (booths M619-M726). In addition to the cost-effective 1011M-UR and 1011S-MR2 A+ Servers, Supermicro is also showcasing its high-density, energy-efficient, 4-way/2-way SuperBlade(TM), 1U Twin(TM), 4-way 1U, and Universal I/O (UIO) solutions. All five solutions are optimized for Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors.

"Always quick to market with the latest server technology, Supermicro fully supports the new single-socket processors on our latest generation of UP servers," said Alex Hsu, chief sales and marketing officer (CSMO) of Supermicro. "Featuring the highest computing density available, we are also showcasing our SuperBlade SBE-710E 7U enclosure with up to ten 4-socket Quad-Core AMD Opteron processor-based server blades supporting up to 960 processor cores and 7.68TB of memory per 42U rack along with our new 2-way AMD Opteron blades (SBA-7121M-T1) and our A+ Server 1021TM Series Opteron 1U Twin(TM) servers."

"By merging the strength of AMD's native quad-core technology and Direct Connect Architecture with their own server design expertise, Supermicro has produced an extensive selection of quad-core solutions that are exceptional in terms of performance, features and energy-efficiency," said Patrick Palta, director, Server and Workstation Business, AMD (NYSE: AMD). "By enabling excellent overall system performance and efficiency, Quad-Core AMD Opteron processor-based systems are a clear choice for meeting the business computing demands of today's competitive marketplace."

Supporting two AMD Opteron processor-based DP motherboards in a 1U chassis, Supermicro's new A+ Server 1021TM series 1U Twin(TM) increases computing density while minimizing energy consumption, costs and space requirements. When loaded with four Quad-Core AMD Opteron 2300 Series processors, the 1U Twin(TM) system features 16 processing cores for exceptional computing density. Each node is a true high-performance system that supports up to 64GB of energy-efficient DDR2 memory, PCI-Express x16, independent dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, and optional InfiniBand.
