In the world of high-frequency trading (HFT), financial institutions need to deploy the fastest available hardware in order to mitigate latency between trader workstations and exchanges. Shaving microseconds off server response times can often be the difference in millions of dollars in revenue. GIGABYTE brings our precision engineering to a new line of ultra-fast, low latency & low jitter systems designed to meet these demanding performance requirements while maintaining high reliability and stability.
Designed for extreme overclocking, the R161-R12 features a high performance Asetek ServerLSL™ (Server Level Sealed Loop) liquid cooling system and modified BIOS.
The fully self-contained liquid cooling system makes it possible to maximize CPU clock speeds with no additional data center infrastructure required – the R161-R12 can be installed in the same racks with air cooled servers.
Performance wise, the R161-R12 using an i9-7980XE (Extreme Edition) processor can be reliably overclocked to 4.4GHz using AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions) or up to 4.6GHz without using AVX, and an i9-7900 processor can be reliably overclocked to up to 4.7GHz.
