Dell's 12th-Gen Servers
Intel's Enterprise Platform and Services Division (EPSD) this year rolled out eight new server platforms for white-box solution providers. The company sent its high-end Grizzly Pass board to the CRN Test Center for evaluation, and we were impressed. The model S2600GZ motherboard was installed in a 2U rack server chassis and outfitted with 128 GB of memory and a pair of Intel Xeon E5-2660 eight-core processors running at 2.2GHz. At the time, its Geekbench performance was good enough to land it in second place on the Test Center's all-time list; it has since moved to third, but EPSD's server products are quite cool indeed.
