Intel’s New Serverboard Supports Dual CPU and 2TB RAM

/ 4 years ago


If a lot isn’t enough for you, then Intel might have what you’re looking for. Their latest server motherboard, the S2600CW2, has been spotted for sale in Japan and not only has 2 Intel LGA2011-v3 sockets, but also supports up to 2TB RAM.


The motherboard supports CPUs up to a maximum of 145W TDP, so if you were to equip it with E5-2699v3 CPUs, then you’ll end up with 36 cores and 72 threads to deal with all that memory. ASUS’ current equivalent motherboard only supports half the memory, so it’s quite a difference.


The downside to the already heavy costs of such a system, or upside if price isn’t an issue for you, is that the motherboard is using DDR4 ECC RDIMMs and LRDIMMs up to 2133MHz. But you’ll also get 84 PCIe lanes, 10 SATA ports with PCH SATA 6G RAID, plenty of USB 2 and 3 ports, as well as dual Gigabit Ethernet.


The motherboard is currently selling for about £430, which isn’t too bad in itself.
