R28N-F3C NVMe Server Barebone Overview

GIGABYTE R28N-F3C Overview

NVMe Technology

The R28N-F3C is built with a backplane board enabling four 3.5" NVMe drive bays on the front of the chassis. With higher IOPS, lower latency, and lower power consumption, the NVMe technology is designed to deliver much faster data transfer performance between a storage device and the processor. Compared to other of types of storage connectivity, NVMe has up to:

6 x
larger bandwidth than SATA III
3 x
lower latency than SATA III
4 x
larger bandwidth than SAS3
7 x
lower latency than SAS3

Supports the Intel Xeon E5-2600 V3 Processors

Based on the Haswell microarchitecture, this Intel processor family brings a whole new set of performance boosting features. In addition to the usual boost in frequencies and core numbers over the previous generation, the Intel Xeon E5-2600 V3 product family is the first in the industry to support the new DDR4 memory technology.

Moreover, these new processors include encryption performance overhead reduction features, and technologies improving run time and migration VM integrity.

DDR4 Memory Support

The Intel Xeon E5-1600 / 2600 V3 product families are the first wave of server processors to support the DDR4 memory technology. Compared to DDR3, this new generation brings:

Bandwidth Performance
Power Consumption @ 2DPC
Power Consumption @ 3DPC

Get the Memory Performance Edge

On the previous server platforms from Intel, the maximum supported memory frequency has always been automatically downgraded by design when more DIMMs were being added on a server motherboard. As this trade-off between performance and capacity represents a dilemma to many memory-hungry server applications, GIGABYTE offers a unique solution. All our motherboards based on the LGA 2011-3 socket support by default a maximum frequency of 2133 MHz in any memory configuration :
