-- Workstation Complements Industry's Broadest Portfolio of 2nd Gen AMD 
EPYC(TM) Based High-Density, Superior Performance Server Solutions

Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI), a global leader in enterprise computing, 
storage, networking solutions, and green computing technology, extended its 
industry-proven workstation family with a new generation server-grade high-end 
workstation that offers maximum configurability and reliability in a robust

The highly versatile, configurable platform harnesses the power of the AMD 
Ryzen Threadripper PRO Processor with up to 64 cores and 128 PCI-E 4.0 lanes, 
doubling the data throughput of the previous generation. The new workstation 
(AS -5014A-TT) 
( ) 
dramatically boosts productivity for demanding professional workloads found in 
media content creation, scientific research, visualization, deep learning (DL) 
and artificial intelligence (AI), virtual or augmented reality (VR/AR), and 3-D 
modeling with real-time simulation. 

"When AMD's new processor is coupled with Supermicro's advanced workstation 
design and architecture, today's professionals can truly bring their 
productivity to the next level," said Vik Malyala, senior vice president, 
Supermicro. "It can drive up to four full-height, double-width, active cooling 
GPUs, double that of similar systems in the market, and supports up to 2TB of 
DDR4 3200 memory, and four M.2 slots for ultra-fast PCI-E Gen 4 NVMe storage. 
Also, with built-in 10Gigatbit Ethernet, and support for 25/100/200G NICs, the 
platform accelerates data-intensive workloads and transfer speed -- required 
for today's content creators, deep learning professionals, and engineers."   

"AMD Ryzen(TM) Threadripper(TM) PRO processors have been designed to set the 
industry standard for workstation compute performance," said Chris Kilburn, 
corporate vice president and general manager, client component business unit, 
AMD. "With the new AS-5014A-TT Workstation, Supermicro has designed a powerful 
and flexible platform, dedicated to maximizing the full spectrum of compute 
capabilities offered by AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO processors."

In addition to Supermicro's support for the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 
processors, Supermicro continues to deliver a wide range of solutions 
leveraging AMD's 2nd Gen EPYC series. These include the H12 SuperBlade(R) and 
single and dual-socket multi-node A+ Twin Servers, the I/O and 
cost-effectiveness focused WIO line of A+ Servers, as well as dual AMD EPYC 
processors with multi-GPU servers supporting eight double-width GPUs in 4U, 
NVIDIA HGX A100 8-GPU in 4U, 4-GPU in 2U. With PCI-E 4.0 x16 support, these A+ 
Servers can deliver 200G network connectivity and feature a large, ultra-fast 
storage footprint and DDR4 memory up 3200MHz to deliver record-breaking 
performance with compelling TCO and TCE.

Workstation Portfolio Solutions

Supermicro Workstation systems are highly customizable and can be purpose-built 
for architecture engineering and construction (AEC), media and entertainment 
(M&E), engineering and manufacturing, product design and simulation, oil and 
gas, and deep learning applications. For more information on Supermicro's
