Next Generation Dell EMC PowerEdge Servers Empower AI

New server line of 17 new PowerEdge server models, based on 1100 Dell engineering designs, protected by Dell patents or registered in
USA, provide the highest performance at present, the manufacturer claims.

Powered by Gen 3 AMD EPYC processors, the PowerEdge R6515 server accelerates big data processing in Hadoop databases by up to 60%, thereby reducing analytics time-to-market.

The PowerEdge R750 with Gen 3 Intel Xeon Scalable processors delivers up to 43% performance improvement in massively parallel linear equations, supporting the most severe
computing loads of clients.

PowerEdge servers are equipped with PCIe Gen 4.0, double the throughput of previous generation servers, and contain up to six accelerators per server for
Support for complex data-intensive workloads. The combination of these technologies and built-in autonomous intelligence makes the new PowerEdge servers the most up-to-date
AI systems today.

The updated portfolio includes two server models optimized for computing accelerators:

  • Designed specifically for AI, the PowerEdge XE8545 server is the foundation of Dell Technologies’ HPC Ready Solution for AI and Data Analytics. The server makes it easy to work with AI,
    analytical and other performance-demanding computational workloads, doubles the computing speed of HPC tasks, and accelerates machine learning by 7 times. Two-processor server,
    Combining the performance of up to 128 cores of 3rd generation AMD EPYC processors and up to 4 GPU accelerators of NVIDIA A100 with support for NVIDIA vGPU software, occupies a 4U rack.

  • Built to boost performance with compute accelerators, the PowerEdge R750xa server delivers high density GPU accelerators for training machine learning models,
    inference (inference) and high performance computing. The 2-socket server in a 2U chassis is powered by Gen 3 Intel Xeon Scalable processors and supports up to four
    Double-width GPU accelerators or up to six single-width GPU accelerators.

Also introduced are the PowerEdge XR11 and XR12 Rugged Servers, which combine performance, security and ruggedness for use at the edge of the IT infrastructure. Thanks to
Rugged chassis and minimal footprint, coupled with multi-accelerator support, shallow depth rack servers are built specifically for the growing demands of edge computing.

Built on a cyber-resilient architecture and proven Silicon Root of Trust security technologies, the new server portfolio solves the cybersecurity challenge
through a holistic approach – from deployment to the entire lifecycle of the servers.

New servers are equipped with tunnel fans and adaptive cooling system for more efficient power consumption, which improves energy efficiency by up to 60% compared to the previous one
generation of systems. In a multi-vector cooling design, airflow can be automatically directed to the hottest part of the server for optimal heat dissipation. In the system of direct
Direct Liquid Cooling Some servers use proprietary leak detection technology.

Release dates:

  • Dell EMC PowerEdge C6525, R7525, R6525, R7515 and R6515 servers with 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors are available worldwide starting March 17.
  • Dell EMC PowerEdge XE8545 servers with 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors will be available worldwide from March 29th.
  • Dell EMC PowerEdge C6520, MX750c, R750, R750xa, R650 servers with 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors will be available worldwide in May 2021.
  • Dell EMC PowerEdge R750xs, R650xs, R550, R440 servers, and ruggedized PowerEdge XR11 and XR12 rugged servers will be available in Q2 2021.
