HPC Cluster Solution for CPU-Intensive, Large Scale Deployments
ClusterMax™ Apex is a high-performance HPC cluster ideal for large-scale deployments that integrate the latest CPU-based computing technologies and require maximum availability and extreme scalability.
Future Proof System With Massive Scalability For Large Scale Deployments
Based on the 22-core Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v4, 18-core Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3, or AMD Opteron 6300 processor series, the ClusterMax™ Apex HPC cluster features up to 2592 Intel® Xeon® or 2304 AMD Opteron processor cores per 42U standard rack cabinet, doubling the density compared with traditional rack mounted servers. This CPU-intensive configuration facilitates performance scalability, industry leading density and maximum efficiency at scale for applications ranging from in-memory databases, to a diverse set of data and compute-intensive HPC applications.

- The world's first 16-core x86 processor, delivering a rich mix of performance, scalability and efficiency for today's highly threaded computing environments.
- AMD Turbo Core technology: digitally boosting all cores simultaneously up to 500MHz or up to 1GHz with half the cores active.
- Technical applications like HPC can take advantage of the innovative design of the new Flex FP that brings 256-bit floating point processing to the mainstream with more throughput for both 128-bit and 256-bit technical applications.
- FMAC units in the Flex FP help boost computational horsepower of HPC and technical applications, driving more performance by executing FMA4 instructions that execute complex calculations in half the cycles; AVX and SSE instructions can also be performed in one cycle on the two different Flex FP pipelines.
- Straight-through computing helps ensure that there are no bottlenecks or compromises: when the workload grows up to 16 tasks each has their own dedicated core, with maximum memory and I/O speed available on every processor models.
