A High-Density 2U Server, Optimized for Parallel Processing

Relion Phi 2040e Server

The Relion Phi 2040e taps into the innovation of Intel’s® second generation Xeon PhiTM product family to deliver extraordinary results. Featuring up to 72 cores, the Relion Phi 2040e is a high-density, fully integrated x86 server that uses Intel’s® latest Xeon Phi™ Processor and provides improved parallel performance over the previous generation to meet today’s time-sensitive enterprise and research needs. Designed to help solve the biggest challenges facing existing and emerging industries, the Relion Phi 2040e introduces an on-board memory package called Multi-Channel DRAM (16GB MCDRAM and 384GB DDR4) that uses up to 500GB/sec of memory bandwidth and can be scaled up to 16GB at launch. The integrated on-package Intel® Omni-Path Fabric provides fast interconnects and removes PCI-e bottlenecks for various HPC workloads. The server comes with 16x 2.5” hotswap SAS/SATA HDD bays, 1x dedicated BMC and 2x PCIe 3.0 x16 low-profile (LP) expansion slots in a 2U 4 node form factor.
