Putting dual LGA 2011 sockets on an ATX board is not new, but doing so while allowing a total compatibility with retail cooling devices is a first. Thanks to its socket placement design, the GA-7PXSL is a perfect candidate for affordable render farms, slim computing servers or compact workstations.
Unlike similar products, the GA-7PXSL's unconventional socket placement is designed for a chassis airflow that will cool both processors with the same efficiency. The heat of one will not be transferred to the other and impair its operating capabilities. The user can therefore be guaranteed that the performance potential of his two expensive Xeon CPUs will be fully exploited.
Deployable through a simple BIOS update, the support of the Intel Xeon processors E5-2600 V2 product family delivers the benefits of the 22nm tri-gate process technology to the high end server industry. Those benefits include, among others, higher frequencies, higher core counts (up to 12 cores / 24 threads) and larger last-level caches, but especially a much more varied mix of core/frequencies with notably the introduction of a new dual socket workstation segment. This new die shrink also allows for overall energy efficiency increase, with up to 30% average decrease in idle power consumption.
Finally, virtualization applications will benefit from increased performance thanks to the Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller (APIC) technology, and more security features are included in the mix as well, such as the Intel® Platform Protection Technology with OS Guard, and Intel® Data Protection Technology with Secure Key.
Always eager to go beyond the industry standards, GIGABYTE's engineering has enabled through its capabilities in design, PCB layout and BIOS fine-tuning the support of 1866 MHz memory frequency running at higher DIMM population (eight DIMMs per socket) where Intel's standard and the rest of the market's products will typically operate memory speed downgrade and support 1866MHz at lower DIMM population only (four DIMMs per socket). GIGABYTE therefore offers at launch on its 2011 socket based products this unique feature which will benefit to high density and memory intensive applications, such as high frequency trading, telecommunication networks, mobile data transfers, and so on.
The GA-7PXSL includes GIGABYTE's digital PWM controllers, guaranteeing a dynamic power supply to the processors and memory with an ultra-fast response time. Built with advanced calibration tools, they allow to get the purest and most efficient electrical supply to date. When the CPU workloads vary in function of the applications running, the Intel Turbo Boost Technology will do a dynamic overclock of the CPU cores. This is where the digital PWMs outshine the previous analog solutions. This way the CPUs operations are much more stable, and the overall reliability of the system is greatly improved.
With the Aspeed AST2300 board management controller (BMC) and a separate management LAN port, this board offers comprehensive remote control options:
