Intel EPSD Server
The CRN Test Center was impressed with the latest server motherboard from Intel's Enterprise Platform and Services Division (EPSD). The company rolled out eight new server platforms for white-box solution providers and sent its high-end Grizzly Pass board to the reviews team for testing. 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 place.
