Fujitsu is the latest enterprise vendor to unveil new systems based on Intel's recently launched Xeon E5v3 family, offering the latest graphics cards and PCI Express solid state drive (SSD) storage for optimal performance when handling demanding workloads.
Available immediately, the Celsius R940 and Celsius M740 are dual-socket and single-socket tower systems respectively, based on Intel's Xeon E5-2600 v3 and E5-1600 v3 processors that were officially launched in September.
Fujitsu said the new models are ideal for demanding applications such as simulating large and complex datasets and real-time 3D model rendering, while providing the highest levels of performance, reliability and data integrity.
However, the firm said that its models are "whisper quiet", with noise generated by the new systems peaking at between 18 and 23 A-weighted decibels, or dB(A), which it claims is quieter than the ambient noise in a typical open-plan office.
Both models offer a broad choice of Xeon processor choices, including the E5-2687W v3 chip which is specially targeted at workstations. This has 10 cores and a clock speed of 3.1GHz, with a higher thermal design power (TDP) rating of up to 160W than the typical server-focused chips. For example, the R940 is also available with the E5-2699 v3, which has 18 cores but clocked only at 2.3GHz with a 145W TDP.
The Celsius R940 can also be configured with up to 512GB of DDR4 memory and for storage has two 5.25in drive bays plus six 3.5in drive bays, two of which are external.
The Celsius M740 can be configured with up to 128GB of DDR4 and has the same number of drive bays.
Both offer a choice of the latest graphics accelerator adapter cards from AMD and Nvidia, including the Nvidia Quadro K6000 and AMD FirePro W9100.
Both systems also ship with Fujitsu's own turbo fast 512GB PCI Express SSD storage, which the firm claims offers twice the performance of other SSDs.
