Introducing Gigabyte New Intel C230 Series Server & Workstation Motherboards

Published by Richard Parry on 19th Oct 2015

Supporting the Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1200 V5 Product Family

Today we are happy to introduce our new lineup of motherboards based on the new Intel® C230 series chipset family. Supporting the brand new Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 V5 product family (former codename Greenlow), this new lineup includes at launch two workstation motherboards and two server motherboards.
 

The New Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1200 V5 Product Family

Formerly known as Greenlow, this new generation of single socket server and workstation processors is based on the 14nm process technology and designed with the new Skylake microarchitecture.

Among the main features of this new product family is the adoption of the DDR4 memory technology within the Xeon E3 line of processors, which brings a significant memory speed and capacity boost over the previous generation (up to 64GB at 2133MHz compared to up to 32GB at 1866MHz with the previous generation). The other main new feature is the increase of the number and speed of PCIe lanes available from up to 8 Gen2 lanes to up to 20 Gen3 lanes, which opens the door for wider board configuration possibilities.

Workstation Motherboards

MW31-SP0 - 2-Way Graphics Workstation Board

 

The MW31-SP0 is GIGABYTE's first ATX workstation motherboard supporting the Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 V5 product family. With its comprehensive set of features and GIGABYTE's server grade components and build quality, this motherboard is an ideal solution for professional tower workstations requiring a high level of durability.

Notably, it features a mezzanine card slot with four PCIe lanes with custom mounting sockets to receive one of our proprietary LAN controller cards. Positioned right between the board’s CPU socket and its rear I/O, it can be used to add functions (for example a Thunderbolt port, or an additional M.2 slot) to the standard interface and fit into a larger range of possible network scenarios.

Moreover, it includes comprehensive audio connectivity with five audio jacks and an optical S/PDIF output on the rear panel, as well as a front audio header, an S/PDIF-In and an S/PDIF-Out header on the board.

  • 4 x DDR4 DIMM slots supporting up to 64GB of ECC memory
  • 2 x GbE LAN ports (Intel® I210 + I219LM controllers) 
  • Rear I/O add-on card slot
  • 2-way NVIDIA® SLI™ & AMD® CrossFireX™ support
  • 1 x M.2 slot
  • 8 x SATA III 6Gb/s ports

MW21-SE0 - Entry Level Workstation Board


The MW21-SE0 is a microATX form factor entry-level workstation board, designed with minimal specifications for users looking for a simple and affordable yet highly durable solution to access the features of the Xeon E3-1200 V3 product family. It features:

  • 4 x DDR4 DIMM slots supporting up to 64GB of ECC memory
  • 1 x GbE LAN port (Intel® I219LM controller)
  • 6 x SATA III 6Gb/s ports
  • 1 x PCIe x16 (Gen3 x16 bus) connector
  • 4 x USB 3.0 ports
  • 2 USB 3.0 + 2 x USB 2.0 ports via headers

Server Motherboards

MX11-PC0 - Compact NVMe Enabled Server Board


The MX11-PC0 is a Mini-ITX form factor server motherboard designed for high density or low-profile server integration. With a rackmount optimized component placement, this motherboard makes no compromise in spite of its size and provides all the features required to build a professional server, including comprehensive integrated remote management features via IPMI 2.0 web interface.

Also, it is the the first GIGABYTE server motherboard to be released with a mini-SAS HD connector capable to connect to one NVMe drive. With higher IOPS, lower latency, and lower power consumption, the NVMe technology is designed to deliver much faster data transfer performance between a storage device and the processor. 

  • 2 x DDR4 DIMM slots supporting up to 32GB of ECC memory
  • 2 x GbE LAN ports (Intel® I210 controller) 
  • 1 x NVMe port
  • 4 x SATA III 6Gb/s ports
  • 1 x PCIe x16 (Gen3 x16 bus) connector
  • Aspeed AST2400 remote management controller

MX31-BS0 - Entry Level Server Board


The MX31-BS0 is a microATX form factor entry-level server board, with a rackmount optimized component placement and all the features required to integrate a standard server system based on the new Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 V5 product family, including comprehensive integrated remote management features via IPMI 2.0 web interface.

  • 4 x DDR4 DIMM slots supporting up to 64GB of ECC memory
  • 2 x GbE LAN ports (Intel® I210 controller) 
  • 1 x M.2 slot
  • 6 x SATA III 6Gb/s ports
  • 1 x PCIe x16 (Gen3 x16 bus) connector
