Supermicro unveiled universal GPU system

In March, Supermicro launched a universal GPU system to bolster the flexibility in the information and technology sector.

The system aims to simplify large-scale GPU deployments with room for adding future technologies. This could allow customers to get the most out of technology gear limited due to a supply chain crisis.

Overall, the product’s primary goal is to make things easier for IT administrators. Its modular setup will allow mixing and matching that may help companies save money.

Subsequently, the initial Universal GPU platforms to ship will operate through third-generation AMD EPYC 7003 processors.

Then, the business will start shipping units powered by third-generation Intel Xeon Scalable chips in April.

Furthermore, Supermicro will report its fiscal third-quarter results on May 3.
