Back in January, Huawei announced Kunpeng 920 64-core Armv8 server processor as well as three Tianshan servers based on the SoC.
That probably means Huawei is now ready to take orders for their new Arm servers. The server pictured above appears to be Taishan X6000 V2 with the following specifications:
- Form Factor – 2U, 4Node high-density server
- Server Nodes – Up to 4 XR320 servers with X6000 universal chassis or 4 XA320 V2 servers with X6000 super chassis
- Power Supply Units
- 2x 1,500W enhanced hot-swappable AC PSUs for XR320 server nodes
- 2x 3,000W hot-swappable AC PSUs for XA320 V2 server nodes supporting 1+1 redundancy
- Power Supply – 100V to 240V AC; 24V DC
- Fan Modules – 4 hot-swappable fan modules in N+1 redundancy
- Dimensions (H x W x D)
- Universal chassis – 86.1 x 436 x 805 mm
- Super chassis – 86.1 x 436 x 819 mm
- Operating Temperature – 5ºC to 35ºC
- Certifications – CE, CCC, and RoHS
Huawei claims Kunpeng 920 CPU scores a SPECint over 930, or 25% higher than the previous record, and the server node accommodates up to 10,240 cores per rack and, with the company’s all-liquid cooling solution, achieves 30% higher data center PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness).
You’ll find more details in Taishan V2 datasheet with not-only Taishan X6000 2U 4-node high-density server, but also Taishan 5280 V2 4U two socket storage server, and Taishan 2280 V2 2U 2-socket balanced server. I could not find pricing for X6000 V2 server, but the previous Hisilicon Hi1616 (Kunpeng 916) based X6000 sever sells for around $25,000 without memory nor storage.
