Gigatech launches MU71-SU0 and MD71-HB0 UE-Strong Motherboard for Professional Workstations

Despite the recent theft from AMD, motherboard manufacturers have not forgotten to introduce updates to Intel XEG’s product line for professionals. Gigatech, for example, has introduced the MU71-SU0, which supports single-way processors, and the MD71-HB0 ToeG motherboard, which supports dual-way processors. The former is designed for the Xeon W-3200 processor and features a C621 chipset. The latter uses the C622 chipset and primarily provides support for Xeon’s scalable processor product line.

The TSE MU71-SU0 motherboard supports Ethex processors from 8 to 28 cores, benefiting from the AVX-512, which supports Intel’s VROC RAID key utility, plus the ASPEED AST2500 remote management controller.

Interface, the MU71-SU0 has six full-length PCIe 3.0 x16 slots that run in x8 / x16 / x8 / x16 / x8 / x16 mode (half locked in PCIe 3.0 x4).

There is also a PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 slot, and two Slim SAS connectors provide eight SATA ports and support RAID 0 / 1 / 5 / 10 disk arrays.

There are eight memory slots, supporting 64GB RDIMM and 128GB LRDIMM, maximum main frequency DDR4-2933, and maximum capacity of 2TB (with Xeon-W Series-specific SKUs).

Confusingly, Tstech’s official website says the motherboard also supports the Optane DCPMM module, but Intel says the Strong W-3200 does not.

On the backplane I/O side, it has two Intel I210-AT Gigabit Ethernet controllers, one remote management additional Ethernet port, and four USB 3.1 G1 ports.

The MD71-HB0 is mainly a two-way design, and the features are more high-end. It offers a similar PCIe slot array, supporting x16 / x16 / x16 / x8 / x16 / x8 / x16 / x16 mode (five full lengths plus two and a half lengths).

On the storage side, it provides two PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2, as well as three Slim SAS ports that can scale up support for a 12-way SATA disk array.

On-board 12 memory slots up to support dDR4-2933 frequencies, and 64GB OFRMM or 128GB LDRIMM memory.

Backplane I/O, which offers dual Intel X557-AT2 10 GbE 10 Gigabit ports plus dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, two USB 3.1 G1 Type-A, and a D-sub video output for the ASPEED AST2500 IPMI interface.

Both boards are designed in much the same style, with blue PCBs, memory slots, and non-reinforced PCIe slots. Unfortunately, Gigacheap has not disclosed the launch date and the price information.
