AMAX Launches New Server Platforms Powered by the Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1200 v3 Product Family

Advanced Technology Driving an Unprecedented Combination of Power Savings & Performance Gains

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 4, 2013) -  AMAX, a leading innovator of High Performance Computing (HPC), dynamic Enterprise IT, and custom Appliance Manufacturing solutions, today announced the immediate release of its latest, most advanced CPU-based computing solutions built upon the brand new Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v3 product family. This powerful new CPU architecture, code name Haswell, features improved CPU performance via Instruction Per Clock (IPC) gains, 256bit INT and FMA instructions, improved AES-NI performance, and takes full advantage of Intel's robust 22nm 3-D transistor technology, which consumes only half the power at the same performance level as 2-D transistors on 32nm process technology. The new AMAX platforms will usher in a new era of intelligent performance that dramatically increases performance and drives unparalleled power efficiency in datacenter and cloud computing environments. 

The new server platforms will enable ISVs to package a powerful, highly-efficient and affordable OEM solution together with worldwide certifications and cutting edge software, while also empowering enterprises to radically reduce datacenter power, cooling and operational management costs, all while continuing to push the performance-per-watt envelope. AMAX's server solutions address these demands and tap into the power of the new Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v3 product family and platforms to deliver a new generation of performance, efficiency and advanced processor technology.

"The new Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v3 product family is built upon our latest server processor architecture and was designed to deliver high performance while continuing to drive energy efficiency for the emerging microserver market, server appliances, and workstations," said Dylan Larson, Director of Xeon Product Marketing at Intel. "AMAX has utilized these innovations to develop new server solutions to offer a more powerful, more power-efficient appliance platform for their customers."

The latest AMAX server solutions designed around the Intel Xeon® processor E3-1200 v3 product family include:

  • ServMax™ X-11305 / X-11306: The X-11305 and X11306 1U, short depth servers are ideal for ultra-low power server appliance, data center and cloud deployments. Both platforms feature a 22nm, 4th generation Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v3 product family and the Intel® C226 chipset, four hot-swap or internal 3.5" SATA drive bays, up to 32GB DDR 1600Mhz memory, a 350W or 250W power supply, and intelligent remote server management.
