Penguin Computing Announces New Tundra AP Offering
New supercomputing platform brings the power of Intel Xeon Scalable 9200 Series processors to an OCP form factor, delivering industry-leading density, greater power capacity and efficiency, improved serviceability, and room-neutral cooling
Penguin Computing Inc., a subsidiary of SMART Global Holdings, Inc., and leader in high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence (AI), and enterprise data center solutions and services, announced that it has released the latest addition to its highly dense Tundra supercomputing platform, Tundra AP, in partnership with Intel Corporation. Customers can now benefit from the many features of Penguin Computing’s Tundra platform, including industry-leading density, greater power capacity and efficiency, improved serviceability, and room-neutral cooling via integrated direct-to-chip liquid cooling, along with the performance benefits of Intel Xeon Scalable 9200 series processors. The first Tundra AP server, Relion XO1122eAP, delivers over 7,616 CPU cores per OCP rack.

Penguin Computing’s Tundra AP platform outperforms standard Xeon Scalable 9200 series-based solutions by enabling greater rack-level density with improved data center economics. With each Intel Server System S9200WK node needing up to 1kW, Tundra AP’s higher power efficiency allows for up to 15% more nodes per rack compared to a traditional EIA rack with the same footprint. Penguin Computing’s Tundra OCP rack, coupled with its innovative liquid cooling system, also provides optimized serviceability. Access to the hot aisle side of the rack is not required for service and the disaggregated power configuration allows for the quick exchange of servers.
