GIGABYTE Unveils Enterprise-grade Motherboards and an Entry Level Workstation for the Launch of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series

Remote management features on AMD AM5 platform

September 30, 2022 – GIGABYTE Technology, (TWSE: 2376), an industry leader in high-performance servers and workstations, today announced supporting products for the new AMD AM5 platform starting with two GIGABYTE motherboards, MC13-LE0 & MC13-LE1, that pair a consumer CPU with IPMI management functionalities via BMC. Additionally, a new desktop workstation, W332-Z00, was released using the same motherboard series platform that supports remote management, but the W332 does so with a Realtek NIC that enables DASH.

The new GIGABYTE products designed to support host systems are deceivingly powerful with a small micro-ATX form factor motherboard and enterprise rich out-of-band management features on top of PCIe® Gen 5 and DDR5 technologies. These new client friendly products will be found in office settings under a desk rather than a rack in a data center, as they be managed from anywhere, provided there is a network connection. Furthermore, these new products are purpose built for the mainstream AMD B650E chipset with AMD Zen 4 architecture for AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series desktop processors.

Gigabyte MC13-LE0 and LE1

New GIGABYTE MC13 Series

Delivering next gen performance benefits and enterprise features, the new GIGABYTE MC13 series of motherboards are designed for applications in the home or office and upgrades the prior gen MC12 series that is based on the AMD AM4 platform. Differences in the new motherboard models, -LE0 and -LE1, solely comes down to networking needs. For faster networking, the -LE1 has dual 10GbE ports while the -LE0 has dual 1GbE. Compared to the MC12 series, the MC13 series upgrades to DDR5, PCIe Gen5 throughput for GPUs and M.2 drives, and USB 3.2. With that aside, the MC13 board, in the new mini-tower W332-Z00, substitutes for the BMC (ASPEED AST2600) a more cost-effective management solution with a Realtek NIC that supports DASH (a systems management standard) to monitor and control client systems.

W332-Z00

The micro-ATX form factor provides the ability to be used in almost all desktop cases, and the MC13 series was also selected for the motherboard of choice in the new mini-tower W332-Z00 that upgrades features compared to the W331-Z00, which supported the AMD AM4 platform.

Remote Management

For MC13-LE1 & MC13-LE0: As part of GIGABYTE’s value proposition, GIGABYTE provides GIGABYTE Management Console (GMC) for BMC server management via a web browser-based platform. Additionally, GIGABYTE Server Management (GSM) software is available for download on product pages. This software can monitor and manage multiple servers without requiring an additional license fee. GMC and GSM offer great value while reducing TCO and customer maintenance costs.

For W332-Z00: A cost-effective management solution uses a Realtek GbE NIC with DASH capabilities to utilize Realtek Remote Management Console that employs DASH standards to manage and monitor client devices. Use of this in-band and out-of-band management allows IT admins the ability to access the device whether it is powered on or off, over the network. Included tasks are power state settings, retrieve health status, view event logs, and more.
