We have had many server motherboards in the lab recently, most ranging from general purpose boards to some focused on storage. The Supermicro X9DR7-TF+ makes its way in as a heavy hitter that can handle GPU/Xeon Phi applications with ease.
This board is powerful enough to run huge databases directly from RAM and number crunch at the same time. Throw in robust storage capabilities with room for top-end network cards and this motherboard takes center stage for advanced server infrastructures.
Supermicro breaks this down into two main systems that can use the Supermicro X9DR7-TF+ motherboard.
The first is the SuperServer 6027R-72RFT+, which is a 2U system that can handle 2x PCI-E 3.0x16 and 4x PCI-E 3.0x8 low-profile expansion cards.
Next up is the SuperServer 6037R-72RFT+, which is a 3U system that can have 2x GPU/Xeon Phi cards installed.
A third possible configuration is a 3U storage box based on the SuperChassis 836BE16-R1K28B case that can hold up to 16 drives.
There are also many other cases that can use this motherboard, so please refer to the product page to see the full list. We only received the motherboard for our review. According to Supermicro's website, you should receive the following:
