WIN Enterprises Introduces 3U Rackmount HPC with Dual Intel Skylake-SP Xeon Processors

April 23, 2019 WIN Enterprises, Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of custom solutions for OEMs, announces the PL-81990, a high performance computer (HPC) featuring dual Intel Skylake-SP (aka, Purley Platform) processors in a 3U rackmount networking system. The Skylake-SP processors represent a significant modification in Intel’s microarchitecture from previous design. Processing formerly handled by linking cores with a ring design is now handled by a much faster mesh architecture to distribute the processing tasks. The cache system, too, has been redesigned to reduce processing latency. 

The dual Xeon scalable series processors each have 28 processing cores to deliver high performance. The CPU’s are coupled with Intel’s C624 PCH chipset to formulate a new generation platform to better support applications from cloud data centers, HPC clusters, IT networking, and storage. In addition the platform supports AVX-512 instructions and Ultra Path Interconnect (UPI) of up to 10.4 GT/s.


  • Supports Intel® Skylake-SP/Purley Xeon® scalable Series Processor, LGA3647
  • Supports Max 768GB DDR4 2400/2666MHz system memory
  • Max support of 12 x PCIe X8 slots for expansion LAN modules provides up to 96 GbE Copper/Fiber ports
  • Supports optional IPMI card
  • Redundant power for high reliability


  • Cloud-based storage, routing and analytics
  • IT network data stream analytics
  • Scientific computing
  • Artificial Intelligence

The PL-81990 supports 6 channels of DDR4 register ECC DIMM (up to 2666 MHz) and maximum memory capacity of up to 768GB. With 96 PCI Express lanes, the PL-81990 supports up to 12 NIC modules and multiple Ethernet module bays for flexible port configurations, including,
1/10/40 Gigabit fiber, Gigabit copper with optional bypass function. The maximum Ethernet ports supported is to 96 GbE.

The robust IO elements of PL-81990 include two management Ethernet ports: one for management and one for an optional IPMI function, a console port, two USB 3.0 ports, LEDs for power/HDD/2x GPO. The PL-81990 supports two front-swappable 2.5” SATA HDDs/SSDs and onboard CompactFlash/m-SATA/M.2 slot for basic network storage applications.

WIN Enterprises will customize the MB-81990 based on the customer’s specific market needs.
