2019 CES Recap

A showcase of smart solutions that will propel 5G technology advancement.
GIGABYTE was proud to share many compelling products and solutions to attendees of CES 2019. Here is a brief wrap-up in case you were unable to attend:
Immersion Cooling
Two-phase liquid immersion cooling of a GIGABYTE high performance computing system. Immersion cooling is a key technology for the data center of tomorrow – liquid is much more energy efficient at cooling than air, allowing you to reduce power consumption & environmental impact.

Software Defined Storage Appliance
GIGABYTE has partnered with software vendor Bigtera to offer a range of VirtualStor turnkey storage appliances, offering unbeatable flexibility, scalability and performance. On show at CES was our H-Series 2U 4 node server showcased with VirtualStor Extreme, a high-performance all-flash SSD storage platform that offers 800,000 IOPS and a bandwidth of 10GB/s per chassis, and a consistent latency of less than 1 millisecond. Also available are VirtualStor Scaler for high capacity scale-out storage, and VirtualStor Converger for hyper-converged storage.
Aero 15 Laptops For Gaming & Content Creation
GIGABYTE's latest ultra-slim and light yet powerful Aero 15 Series laptops feature the latest NVIDIA RTX 20 series graphics cards together with Intel's Core i7-8750H or upgradeable to the Core i9-8950HK, an unlocked 6-core hyper threaded processor, as well as incorporating Microsoft Azure-powered AI technology to optimize CPU and GPU power delivery according to each application’s unique requirements.
DNN Training Appliance
GIGABYTE's G481-HA1 is a 4U, 10 x GPGPU server, using a single-root topology (1 CPU controls all 10 x GPGPUs) making it ideal for DNN (deep neural networks) training and other AI / machine learning workloads. GIGABYTE can not only provide the hardware but also combine the G481-HA1 together with a software stack from ITRI that optimizes performance for DNN training.
Smart Digital Signage
GIGAIPC, the embedded solutions specialist of GIGABYTE, provides a range of embedded systems and motherboards suitable to build your smart digital signage solution.
AMD EPYC Workstation
GIGABYTE has brought the impressive compute and I/O capabilities of AMD EPYC to a new single socket tower server that can support four GPGPU cards, making it ideal for SOHO, SME, universities or other organizations requiring a cost effective, high performance engine for simulation, machine learning or other AI, HPC or data processing workloads. VGA graphics cards may also be installed instead, turning the W291-Z00 into a powerful tool for CAD modeling or 3D rendering.
AMD EPYC Servers for Hyper-Converged Infrastructure
GIGABYTE's H261-Z60 and H261-Z61 combine four dual socket, hot pluggable nodes. Each node supports dual AMD EPYC processors - with up to 32 cores / 64 threads per processor, meaning that a single 2U chassis could feature up to 256 cores / 512 threads – making this product ideal for cloud computing, HPC or other applications requiring a massive amount of compute power in a single box.
Marvell ThunderX2 Arm Server
GIGABYTE is bringing Arm to the server world with our Marvell ThunderX2 server systems, currently available in 1U & 2U dual-socket rackmount configurations and soon in 2U 4 node versions, with up to 32 cores and 128 threads per processor, offering a genuine alternative to x86 for your HPC or mainstream data center deployment.

Looking Towards 5G and the Transformation of Our Technology Ecosystem

When everything in the world becomes connected to the internet, human society will become a huge, highly intelligent organism. The “brain” of this organism will be the cloud, and its limbs will be a variety of end applications such as smart phones, AI-enabled robots, self-driving cars and smart factories.

Did You Know? GIGABYTE’s Servers Are Helping to Launch Europe’s Space Ambitions

As environmental protection is becoming a pressing issue in recent years due to climate change and global warming, data centers – which traditionally consume a huge amount of electricity – are being designed to better meet the goals of energy efficiency and carbon reduction. When a national aerospace center in Europe wanted to expand their data center, with a requirement for servers that could maintain normal operation in an ambient temperature environment of 40°C without the need for air conditioning systems, GIGABYTE’s server team provided a solution with Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI), combining compute, storage and networking into a single system, and equipped with liquid cooling technology to successfully overcome the harsh high temperature environment, enabling the data center to efficiently process an enormous amount of space-related research data within a limited space.
