Supermicro solutions that will feature 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, codenamed Arctic Sound -M in 2U for media processing applications, the Supermicro CloudDC server for edge AI inferencing and the Supermicro 2U 2-Node server with three Intel Data Center GPUs, codenamed Arctic Sound-M per node, optimized for cloud gaming. Additional systems will be made available later this year.
“Supermicro will expand our media processing solutions by incorporating Intel Data Center GPUs,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO, Supermicro. “The new solutions will increase video streaming speeds and enable Android cloud gaming with lower latency. 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 new Intel Data Center GPUs . The solutions will extend our market-leading accelerated computing services, including everything from media processing and delivery to collaboration and HPC.”
Systems adapted to workloads
Transcoding is a critical technology for today’s media-centric world. The Supermicro 4U 10x GPU server is ideal for various industries, where multiple formats must be delivered to a wide range of video devices.
Cloud gaming requires significant computing power and the ability to deliver interactive frame rates to gaming enthusiasts. With the Supermicro 2U 2-Node server with Intel Data Center GPU, codenamed Arctic Sound-M, cloud-based Android gaming takes a new level of performance.
Media Processing for Content Delivery Networks (CDN) requires fast and efficient delivery of all media types. The Supermicro BigTwin system with Intel Data Center GPU will deliver multiple video content streams to consumers.
“Intel Data Center GPU is a highly flexible solution for accelerating workloads that have become an integral part of daily life. The combination of advanced media capabilities, graphics rendering pipeline and an open software stack provide high density and low latency, and exquisite visual quality required for the next next-generation video conferencing, media delivery and cloud gaming Supermicro’s new product offerings with Intel Data Center GPUs pave the way for rapid market deployments, he says. Jeff McVeighvice president and general manager of the Super Compute Group at Intel.
Supermicro Building Block Solutions® approach enables Supermicro to bring a range of products to market faster so that new technologies can be quickly incorporated into its server lines. For example, Android Cloud games with the new Intel Data Center GPU codenamed Arctic Sound-M will support more interactive users than previously possible. Streaming performance will see a dramatic increase with the industry’s first hardware AV1 encoder and open source media software, compared to software-only transcoding.
The Intel Data Center GPU, codenamed Arctic Sound-M, is designed to be an open and flexible solution for cloud gaming and media processing and delivery. This GPU will be supported by a complete solution stack that offers developers an open source stack for streaming media and Android cloud gaming, with broad 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 proprietary language lock-in that enables full hardware performance with a complete, proven set of tools that complement existing languages and parallel models. This will give developers the ability to design open, portable code that will take maximum advantage of different combinations of CPUs and GPUs.
