The Supermicro A+ line includes servers that incorporate single-socket and 
dual-socket system solutions designed to reduce the time to results and drive 
better business decisions. For example, the recently announced new 2U 2-node 
multi-GPU server is the perfect platform for video streaming, high-end cloud 
gaming, and countless social networking applications. It has market-leading 
system flexibility, and cost savings will deliver uninterrupted performance. 
With innovative server designs that reduce the power required while leading the 
industry in performance, Supermicro paves the way with application-optimized 
servers, enabling modern businesses to reduce costs and enhance their user's 

"Supermicro has always led the industry in designing and manufacturing the 
largest application-optimized portfolio of servers that meet the demands of our 
customers," said Charles Liang, president and CEO, Supermicro. "Our building 
block architecture allows us to deliver a versatile portfolio of systems that 
maximize the benefits of the 3rd Gen AMD EPYC Processors for specific workloads 
be it our 2U 2 Node GPU System with PCIe 4.0 for cloud gaming our 2U CloudDC 
single processor high core count system for storage applications These systems 
reduce TCO and the Total Cost to the Environment (TCE), which is an essential 
metric as we all have the responsibility to minimize a data centers effect on 
the environment."

The new 3rd Gen AMD EPYC 7003 Series Processors are designed with the "Zen3" 
core that delivers up to 19% more instructions per cycle(2) than the previous 
generation and contains up to 64 cores per socket for exceptional performance 
on popular benchmarks and real-world workloads. The new systems from Supermicro 
include a range of compute and storage systems designed for many of the most 
demanding applications, for AI, HPC, Enterprise, and Cloud deployments.

"We designed the EPYC 7003 Series processors to give our customers exactly what 
they said they needed, performance across all workloads, and the ability to 
drive more time to value, right out of the box," said Ram Peddibhotla, 
corporate vice president, EPYC product management, AMD. "With leadership 
architecture, performance, and modern security features, EPYC 7003 Series 
processors are a superior choice and continue to drive the standard for the 
modern data center."   

The new A+ product lineup with AMD EPYC Series 7003 Processors helps leading 
enterprises reduce time to solution for a wide range of applications, add 
enhanced security features, and allow all workloads to be run in the cloud, 
on-prem, or a private cloud. Supermicro has certified many solutions and 
reference architectures that enable organizations to gain insight from their 
data faster than ever before with easy deployments. These solutions include: 
AI/ML/DL training inference workload-optimized, certified servers, HCI/SDI, or 
software-defined storage such as VMWare vSAN, RedHat CEPH, and Weka.IO. Data 
Management such as Oracle 19c, Apache Hadoop, and Cassandra and HPC application 
optimization such Ansys Fluent, OpenFOAM, and WRF all show increased
