Abit SU-2S Shows Prowess as UT2K4 Game Server
Posted by: duke on: 10/14/2004 07:52 PM [ Print | 3 comment(s) ]
Digitimes has an article up about Abit's dual Opteron board, the SU-2S.
Abit has now unveiled its latest server board for the gaming community, its SU-2S dual-AMD-Opteron server, which, according to the director of marketing at Abit, Scott Thirlwell, has now been running Unreal Tournament 2004 (UT2K4) game server for six weeks straight, with no problems. The server is using the AMD Opteron 246 series CPU and is running under Red Hat Linux Advanced Server edition, said Thirlwell. Currently, the company is working with a local Taiwan ISP that has two servers online, and Thirlwell expects a US server to be set up within the next few weeks.There's a picture of the board over here and I must admit, it looks sexy.

For data storage, the SU-2S includes a Marvell 88SX-6081 8-channel SATA-2 controller with a 3Gbps data transfer rate and NCQ (Native Command Queuing). Inclusion of this on-board controller is intended to improve the server

That is one damn sexy board.
I wonder if they will make a workstation version?
I understand the market that this is aimed at, but if it only had a pair of PCI-E 16x ( yes pair, not a 16, and a 4 in a 16 size slot ) slots, and SLI compatable at that, it would be the wet dream of every uber geek on the planet.

I would expect the Broadcom 5704 ports to work with Astaro security linux; the other Broadcom gigabit controllers such as the 5703 are on the HCL list.
It would make a killer firewall/gateway/proxy server
