Product Overview

The Libra series server board, standard EATX form factor, offers compelling performance and improved power efficiency, which is optimized for efficient performance platforms (storage, security and communications infrastructure). By implementing Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v3 and v4 product family, fully integrated microarchitecture, the Libra series server board delivers unmatched performance, providing 2S support with four channels of DDR4 2133/2400 per socket, dual 10GBase-T, and optional Broadcom SAS 3008 IOC onboard. Featured with ground breaking technologies including Intel® Next Generation Microarchitecture and Instruction Set (including AVX 2.0), Energy Efficient Turbo, Increased Intel® QPI link speeds up to 9.6GT/s and DDR4 memory, the Libra series server board enables next generation server solutions with an incredible
leap in performance in a standard EATX form factor platform.
