Supermicro extends its comprehensive IT solutions with Intel Data Center GPU codenamed Arctic Sound-M (ATS-M) to deliver outstanding performance for the modern enterprise –– Over 540 1080p @60Hz transcoded streams per system*
SAN JOSE, California., July 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Super Micro Computers, Inc. (Nasdaq:SMCI), a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, networking and green computing technology, announces future Total IT availability solutions with Android Cloud Gaming and Media Processing & Delivery. These new solutions will include the Intel Data Center GPU, codenamed Arctic Sound-M, and will be supported on multiple Supermicro servers.
Supermicro solutions that include the Intel Data Center GPUs, codenamed Arctic Sound-M, include the 4U 10x GPU server for transcoding and media delivery, the Supermicro BigTwin® system with up to eight Intel Data Center GPUs with the Codenamed Arctic Sound-M in 2U for media processing applications, the Supermicro CloudDC server for edge AI inference, and the Supermicro 2U 2-node server with three Intel Data Center GPUs, codenamed Arctic Sound-M per node, optimized for cloud gaming. Other systems will be available later this year.
“Supermicro will enhance our media processing solutions by integrating the Intel Data Center GPU,” he said Karl Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “The new solutions will increase video stream rates and enable lower latency Android cloud gaming. As a result, Android cloud gaming performance and interactivity will increase dramatically with the Supermicro BigTwin systems, while media delivery and transcoding will show dramatic improvements with the new Intel Data Center GPUs. The solutions will expand our market-leading accelerated computing offerings, including everything from media processing & delivery to collaboration and HPC.”
Systems tailored to workloads
Transcoding is a crucial technology for today’s media-centric world. The Supermicro 4U 10x GPU Server is ideal for various industries that need to deliver multiple formats to a variety of video devices.
Cloud-based gaming requires significant processing power and the ability to deliver interactive frame rates to gaming enthusiasts. Cloud-based Android gaming reaches a new level of performance with the Supermicro 2U 2-node server with the Intel Data Center GPU, codenamed Arctic Sound-M.
Media processing for Content Delivery Networks (CDN) requires fast and efficient delivery of all media types. The Supermicro BigTwin system with the Intel Data Center GPU will deliver multiple streams of video content to consumers.
“The Intel Data Center GPU is a highly flexible solution for accelerating workloads that have become an integral part of everyday life. The combination of advanced media capabilities, a graphics rendering pipeline, and an open software stack delivers the high density, low latency, and exquisite visual quality required for next-generation video conferencing, media delivery, and cloud gaming deployments. Supermicro’s new product offerings featuring the Intel Data Center GPU pave the way for rapid deployments in the marketplace,” said Jeff McVeighVice President and General Manager of the Super Compute Group at Intel.
The Supermicro building block solutions® This approach allows Supermicro to bring a number of products to market more quickly, allowing new technologies to be quickly integrated into its server lines. For example, Android Cloud Gaming will support more interactive users than previously possible with the new Intel Data Center GPU, codenamed Arctic Sound-M. Streaming performance will increase dramatically compared to software-only video transcoding with the industry’s first hardware AV1 encoder and open source media software stack.
The Intel Data Center GPU, codenamed Arctic Sound-M, is designed as an open and flexible solution for cloud gaming and media processing and delivery. This GPU is supported by a full solution stack that offers developers an open source software stack for streaming media and Android cloud gaming, with extensive support for the latest codecs, graphics APIs and frameworks. With Intel® oneAPI for unified programming across architectures, the Intel Data Center GPU, codenamed Arctic Sound-M, will provide an open alternative to locking in proprietary languages, enabling the full power of the hardware with a complete, proven set of tools that support existing languages complement and parallel models. This gives developers the ability to design open, portable code that takes maximum advantage of different combinations of CPUs and GPUs.
