ZTE has launched the fourth-generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor (Sapphire Rapids)-based G5 series servers in Beijing.

At the conference, ZTE released five types of servers, including the 5200 G5 high-density server, R5300 G5 full-scenario universal server, R5500 G5 mass storage server, R6500 G5 heterogeneous computing power server, and R8500 G5 high-performance server.

The new G5 series servers support liquid cooling heat dissipation. They possess high-density computing power, flexible expansion, heterogeneous computing power, mass storage, and stability and reliability, which will provide more powerful computing power for the development of the digital economy.

ZTE’s G5-Series servers adopt the latest Intel® Xeon® fourth-generation scalable processors with up to 120 cores in 2 sockets, providing powerful computing power support. The servers have high memory bandwidth design with 32 DDR5 memory slots. The highest rate is up to 4800MT/s, and bandwidth performance is promoted by 50%. The servers support Intel® Optane™ persistent memory 300 series (Crow Pass). The new PCIe 5.0 improves bandwidth by 150% and provides powerful hardware acceleration capabilities.

Specifically, ZTE’s R6500 G5 heterogeneous computing power server has a built-in 10-20 heterogeneous computing intelligent acceleration engine. According to different application scenarios, it can flexibly schedule various heterogeneous computing power resources to achieve the best combination of computing power, such as CPU + GPU and CPU + GPU + DPU, to meet the requirements of various computing power scenarios such as AI and super computing.

Meanwhile, the new G5-series servers can be flexibly expanded. For instance, the R5300 G5 provides a maximum of forty-one 2.5″ disk positions or twenty 3.5″ disk positions and four 2.5″ disk positions, and provides high-speed I/O interfaces. It is designed based on hardware modularization and software platforms, which is configured as required to meet differentiated requirements in different application scenarios. In addition, the customized R5300 G5 server can be designed to meet different customer requirements and meet different application scenarios.

The latest G5 series servers are optimized in terms of heat dissipation design, power modules, and mainboard layout. The power modules support 1+1 redundancy, and fans support N+1 redundancy, improving system reliability. The key components such as hard disks and power supply products support the hot swapping mode. The high-performance copper heat pipe heat sinks reduce the thermal resistance by 15% and the measured temperature of CPUs by 5℃, meeting the heat dissipation requirements of CPUs with the highest 350W of the EagleStream series. In addition, the new G5 series servers support liquid cooling heat dissipation technology. With this technology based on cooling plates, the PUE of the data center can be reduced to 1.1, the cooling plates and pipes can be connected reliably, all the pipes can be intelligently monitored, and liquid leakage second-level alarms can be raised. In this way, green and low-carbon is realized, and product reliability can be guaranteed.

Guo Shubo, Deputy General Manager of Server and Storage product line at ZTE, said: “With the rapid development of the digital economy, the computing power scale has also increased rapidly in recent years. ZTE, the fastest growing server manufacturer in China in the past three years has deployed its server and storage products in 40+ countries and regions around the world, covering communications, Internet, finance, power, government, transportation, and other industries.”
