GIGABYTE Unleashes GA-7PESH3, GA-7PESH4 and GA-6PXSV4 Server/WS Motherboards

GIGABYTE recently unleashed two new workstation motherboards (GA-7PESH3 and GA-7PESH4), and one new model (GA-6PXSV4) dedicated to mission critical server applications. The three new motherboards are designed for Intel Xeon processors E5-2600 product family, these new models are designed to answer demanding needs for computing resources across various usage models, form factors and scales. See more details below.

While these products have been naturally thought for scenarios requiring heavy computing power through GPUs or GPGPU / co-processors cards, from CAD/CAE to rendering, simulation and modeling, their most notable advantage relies in their unique memory performance capability. These Gigabyte motherboards supports 1600MHz memory frequency with 16GB RDIMM 1.35V modules at full DIMM population.

Achieved through GIGABYTE’s capabilities in design, PCB layout and BIOS fine-tuning, this feature will be most appreciated in the many workstation applications where improvements in memory frequency result in speeding up the user’s productivity and in all the industries relying on server applications where each incremental improvement in memory performance results in significant benefits, such as in finance.

Also, these three models are built with GIGABYTE’s digital PWM controllers, guaranteeing a dynamic power supply to the processor(s) and memory with an ultra-fast response time. Built with advanced calibration tools, they offer the purest and most efficient electrical supply to date. When the CPU workload varies in function of the applications running, the Intel Turbo Boost Technology will do a dynamic overclock of the CPU cores, where the digital PWMs outshine the previous analog solutions. This way the CPU operations are much more stable, and the overall reliability of the system is greatly improved.
