Being the first to market with the second-generation NVIDIA OVXTM systems has allowed Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI), a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, GPUs, networking solutions, and green computing technologies, to further expand its advantage in accelerated compute infrastructure.

In a 4U 8GPU server with dual Intel CPUs, 32 DIMMs, 8TB of memory, 12 PCI-E slots, and up to 24 disc bays, the Supermicro OVX server is built on the new L40 GPU. A variety of Supermicro servers, including the 4U 4GPU rackmount/workstation, the 2U with up to 6GPUs, the 1U 4GPU, and the multi-node 2U 2Node system, are further servers that make use of the L40 GPU. NVIDIA L40 PCI-E-based GPUs are supported by all of these systems.

According to Charles Liang, president, and chief executive officer of Supermicro, “Supermicro is again leading the industry by being first to market with the second generation OVX server,” said Charles Liang, president and CEO of Supermicro. “Our most demanding customers require the integration of the fastest CPUs and GPUs for low-latency, immersive experiences. Our OVX server is designed for creating and operating the most complex Omniverse Enterprise applications at scale.”

The cutting-edge graphics, AI, and network performance provided by these new servers enable the creation and management of immersive 3D virtual worlds. The most cutting-edge NVIDIA RTX-accelerated graphics and AI capabilities are combined with high-speed, secure networking and enterprise-grade management in Supermicro's OVX systems, which are designed specifically for developing and managing NVIDIA OmniverseTM Enterprise applications at a data center scale.
