I stumbled across a news article from CRN.com about Supermicro servers. Here is paraphrase/summary of their findings. A link below will be listed to the actual article. According to CRN.com, after they posted their Battle of The Titans review of Dell and HP’s server systems, Supermicro decided to they wanted to join the battle and sent their own product to be review by CRN.com, the SYS-2027R-72RFTP+.
In their review, they had two Xeon E52690 v2 10-core CPUs running at 3.0GHz in the system. It came with 64 GB of 1,866MHz ECC DDR3 memory. CRN.com reported both CPUs must be installed in order for the PCIe slots and controllers to work. The rest of the article details the components of the server system.
Most importantly, CRN lists the performance benchmark in their article at the end. Their 20-core SYS-2027R-72RFTP+ systems scored 34,298 on their Geekbench 2.3, putting it in 4th place on the CRN’s Top 10 Server list. Supermicro claims that they were able to eek out a score of 45,043 on their Geekbench test with an overclocked 16-core machine. It runs on the X9DRW-7TPF+ motherboard by Supermicro. This is quite an impressive piece of machinery that Supermicro put together.
