ASUS today announced ESC4000 G2S, a new 2U-sized server series based on the dual Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 processor platform and designed for use in environments that demand high-density GPU/coprocessor servers. G2S series servers feature a highly optimized thermal design that's up to 20% more power efficient than the previous version, six hot-swappable 2.5-inch SATA drive bays and nine PCI Express 3.0 (PCIe 3.0) x16 expansion slots.
ASUS today announced that its ESC4000/FDR G2 servers powered the SANAM high-performance-computing (HPC) cluster to secure the 59th and 11th positions in the November 2013 TOP500 and Green500 global performance tables. The cluster employs 210 ASUS ESC4000/FDR G2 servers to achieve 532.6TFLOPS total processing power and 2.3GFLOPS/watt efficiency. ESC4000/FDR G2 delivers superior parallel processing and extra-fast, low-latency InfiniBand™ FDR transfers.
ASUS today announced that its world-leading ESC4000 G2 series server range now supports the next-generation NVIDIA® Tesla® K40 (Kepler) GPU accelerators. The ESC4000 G2-powered SANAM cluster achieved total processing power of 532.6TFLOPS to claim then number 59 spot in the November 2013 TOP500. With four Tesla K40 GPU accelerators ESC4000 G2 could provide up to 5.72TFLOPS double-precision floating-point performance.
