D-1541 with increased speed plus support for SR-IOV and DDR3 memory might end up in Supermicro SYS-5028D-TN4T somewhere in februari

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/01/04

I wrote about TinkerTry’s Xeon D-1540 fueled ESXi 6.0 home lab build begins LIVE! before as I think it is an amazing buy.

In the mean time, there are more some bundles of it available, even one shipping from The Netherlands:

Currently these machines (called SYS-5028D-TN4T) contain a Xeon D-1540 processor and use the X10SDV-TLN4F that also lists the Xeon D-1541 processor which will likekly be available on that board starting from about February. The Xeon D-1541 processor which adds new features: is about 5% faster and adds support for both SR-IOV (which can help with virtualisation, but isn’t supported by ESXi on these processors yet), DDR3 memory and Storage Performance Development Kit support for storage acceleration: Intel Xeon D-15×1 Storage Accelerated SKUs.

You have to choose, as they use the FCBGA 1667 which – like any other BGA – are soldered. So if you need these feaures and can wait 2 more months, then go for the Xeon D-1541. Otherwise, order now.

Some articles to help you decide:

On a different topic: if you want to cool the processor better, consider re-applying cooling paste: Socket FCBGA 1667 aftermarket cooling?? | Page 2 | ServeTheHome and ServeThe.Biz Forums.

And finally two more things:

  1. There is a D-1548 too which compared to the D-1540 has the CPU speed, but adds SR-IOV and DDR3 memory support.
  2. There will be 12-core and 16-cores varieties in the Xeon-D series later this  year: Intels Server-Prozessor Xeon D-1500: 16-Kern-Version tritt 2016 gegen ARM-SoCs an | heise online.
    According to the current SuperMicro Xeon-D information these will be available in boards that seem to fit in the SYS-5028D-TN4T system:

    1. X10SDV-12C-TLN4F.
    2. X10SDV-16C+-TLN4F.

Anyway: I think with either processor, you have a great deal!
