It has come to our attention that a low-quality Supermicro product has been found in the market. If you notice any defects, please immediately stop using the product, and return it to us for a full refund.

However, if you feel the product meets your needs and continues to work for you after inspection, then we appreciate your business. But please be aware that this is not the way we operate.

We are committed to providing quality products with maximum reliability and customer satisfaction at all times.

Supermicro offers server boards in two form factors: standard ATX and micro ATX. Each line is designed to address a different set of applications.

There are two alternative flexible motherboard formats available: the mATX and mini-ITX.

The mini-ITX is a form factor that is 8″ x 8″ in dimensions, while the mini-ATX is 10″ x 10″.

While both sizes can fit into the same case, there are significant differences in board layouts and features. This difference brings separate motherboard manufacturers for each form factor. 

In addition to the motherboards, Supermicro also offers full systems for large-scale enterprise-class deployments.

Supermicro’s server boards are defined by the chipset used, socket type, and connectivity (x8 or x16) offered. While each board is designed to address a specific market segment, some models can be used for multiple applications.

In 2008 Supermicro released two new servers: the SYS-5019S-M3, X9SPU-TF+, X9SCA-F, including an optional integrated LSI SAS 9207-8i HBA controller, and the SYS-5019S-WR, X9SCA+, X9DAX+.

These systems feature Intel Xeon 5100/5200 processors (Nehalem line). Processors range in frequency from 2.0 GHz to 3.2 GHz. Supermicro’s new servers were also built with enterprise-class features such as redundant power supplies, hot-swappable disks, and NIC, as well as additional room for expansion.

Supermicro offers a line of low-power processors based on Intel’s Bay Trail platform. Two models are available: the BFM 9500 and BFM 9550. The latter is a quad-core processor with integrated graphics, while the former is a dual-core model with no integrated graphics support.

These products are ideal for energy-efficient media playback devices and network appliances or for small form factor applications where consumption does not affect performance or reliability. 

The BFM 9500 series is equipped with an Intel Celeron processor with a frequency of 1.6 GHz to 1.8 GHz. The BFM 9550 series is equipped with an Intel Pentium processor with a frequency of 2.0 GHz to 2.2 GHz.

Both processors have performance levels that are in line with other popular Bay Trail-based processors while offering lower power consumption and thermal design points that are ideal for small form factor deployments (5 to 6 W).

Supermicro’s SYS-3028D-TN4T+ is the first generation of entry-level systems based on Intel’s Atom processor D525 used in their small form factor servers and 15-watt tablets.
