Inspur NF5280M5

Resilient and adaptable with excellent scalability and top-notch performance / Broke world records in SPEC testing on multiple occasions

Powerful Scale-up AI Super Server

Designed for the most challenging AI&HPC workloads, Inspur's AGX-5 is one of the most powerful AI servers, delivering 2 petaFLOPS of superb computing performance for the hyperscale data center.

Extreme Performance Experience

The NF5280M5 provides numerous features to boost performance and reduce costs:

• Integrated with the Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor product family with up to 28-core processors, up to 2933 MHz memory speeds, and up to 10.4 GT/s UPI interconnect links.

Support up to two processors, 56 cores, and 112 threads allows to maximize the concurrent execution of multithreaded applications.

• Support up to four double-width GPUs in a 2U chassis, dramatically improves the system performance for the HPC, deep learning, and machine learning applications.

• Up to 2933 MHz memory speeds with two DIMMs per channel running at 2933 MHz to help maximize system performance.

• Support 24 NVMe disk drive, allowing host hardware and software to fully exploit the level of parallelism possible in modern SSDs. As a result, NVMe reduces I/O overhead and brings various performance improvements in comparison to previous logical-device interfaces, including multiple, long command queues, and reduced latency.

• Up to 100Gb/s network adapter, tremendously reduces the I/O latency and improves the bandwidth for low-latency and high throughput application such as HPC.

• With Intel® Integrated I/O Technology, the PCI Express 3.0 controller is integrated into the Intel® Xeon® processor SP product family. This helps to dramatically reduce I/O latency and increase overall system performance.

• Support Intel® Turbo Boost Technology accelerating processor and graphics performance for peak loads, automatically allowing processor cores to run faster than the rated operating frequency if they’re operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits.

• Whether the processor enters into Intel® Turbo Boost Technology and the amount of time the processor spends in that state depends on the workload and operating environment.

• Intel® Virtualization Technology features enable faithful abstraction of the full prowess of Intel® CPU to a virtual machine (VM). All software in the VM can run without any performance or compatibility hit, as if it was running natively on a dedicated CPU. Live migration from one Intel® CPU generation to another, as well as nested virtualization, is possible.

Rich and Flexible Configurations

The NF5280M5 provides rich and flexible configurations as following to fit a wide-range of applications and works:
