Designed for Extreme Overclocking
GIGABYTE brings our precision engineering to a new line of high performance systems designed for ultra-low latency & low jitter applications.
Intel® Core™ X-Series Processors & Intel® X299 Chipset
The Intel Core X-Series processor family is designed to scale to your performance needs by delivering options ranging from 8 to 18 cores, features Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 (which optimizes lightly-threaded performance by identifying your processor's fastest two cores and directing your most critical workloads to them), and is ready to install Intel Optane SSDs for amazing system responsiveness.
Want to push the performance envelope? The Intel X299 chipset and Intel Core X-series processor family bring new unlocked base clock capabilities. Unlock your individual cores and memory frequencies to amazing levels while having the flexibility to keep other areas within specification. Featuring solder thermal interface material (STIM) and with support for Intel Extreme Memory Profiles (XMP) and Intel Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU), the capabilities of the Intel X299 chipset and the Intel Core X-Series processor family will challenge every overclocking world record.
High Efficiency Liquid Cooling System
R161-R12 features an Asetek ServerLSL™ (Server Level Sealed Loop) liquid cooling system, enabling the highest performing overclocked CPUs to be used. ServerLSL is liquid enhanced air cooling for server nodes, replacing less efficient air coolers with liquid coolers and exhausting 100% of this hot air into the data center, with the overall data center heat being handled by existing CRACs and chillers. Individual liquid cooled servers can be installed in the same racks with air cooled servers, and no changes are required to existing data center infrastructure. This is a key advantage over centralized pumping systems that require high pressures and whole racks (or multiple racks) of liquid cooled servers to be installed.
Carefully Selected Components
GIGABYTE SERVER passive components are meticulously selected to guarantee a super stable operating environment and allow the processors and the memory to deliver their maximum performance. With some of the longest service lifetimes in the industry, our server motherboards are built with ultra long lasting components to attain the highest reliability levels.
Ease of Deployment and Management
GIGABYTE continues to be responsive to market needs and to create user-friendly solutions, including:
- Tool-less rail kit included as a default across all new server models
- Supplying multiple connector options and tools where appropriate
Efficient, Reliable Power Supply
GIGABYTE servers are designed to guarantee high conversion efficiency regardless of load. Redundant 80 Plus 'Titanium' PSUs, combined with GIGABYTE's precision engineering, translates to super efficient power usage which maximizes the system's power : performance ratio and reduces OPEX for the user.
