Today Dell Technologies announced the next generation of the PowerEdge blade server – the PowerEdge MX760c. In this blog post, I’ll highlight the details of this new blade server.
The PowerEdge MX760c is the 3rd generation of blade servers built for the PowerEdge MX7000 infrastructure. It is designed to be used in the same blade chassis as previous blade server generations.
Supports up to 2 x 4th Generation Intel Xeon SP CPUs (up to 56 cores.) Also supports direct liquid cooling (DLC) helping to enable support for some of the higher TDPs. See more on DLC within the video link at the end of this blog post.
Supports 16 DIMMs / CPU (32 DIMMs total) of DDR5 with starting speeds of 4800MT/s (at 1 DIMM per channel) supporting a maximum of 8TB of memory.
The PowerEdge MX760c includes support for 3 x mezzanine cards. One connects to Fabric A, one connects to Fabric B and the last mezzanine card is available to connect to Fabric C.
The PowerEdge MX760c will support the following internal storage controllers:
- PERC H755MX
- PERC H965iMX
- HBA350i MX
Additionally, there are a few different drive options for the PowerEdge MX760c:
- 4 x 2.5″ SAS/SATA (HDD/SDD)
- 6 x 2.5″ SAS/SATA (HDD/SDD/NVMe)
- 8 x E3.S NVMe PCIe Gen 5
The PowerEdge MX760c includes the iDRAC 9 systems management processor and works with OpenManage Modular Edition (OME-Modular) as well as OpenManage Enterprise.
