G250-S88 Product Overview
High Density HPC
8 x Computing Cards
With the unique ability to receive up to 8 double slot GPGPU or co-processor cards, the G250 opens the door to new records in teraflops performance within a 2U chassis. It is therefore one the best solutions to accelerate development and programs in scientific simulation & modeling, engineering, visualization & rendering, data mining, and much more.
Ethernet LAN Bandwidth Flexibility
Built with a dual 10Gb/s SFP+ LAN controller, the G250-S88 can receive an additional proprietary LAN card sporting another dual 10Gb/s controller or a dual 56Gb/s controller.
The network capabilities of the system can therefore be tailored for the needs of its target applications.
Onboard Dual 10Gb/s SFP+ Ports
Capable of load-balancing, FCoE support, and low latency transfers, the default LAN controller of the G250-S88 is a top performing network solution for demanding network environments.

DDR4 Memory Support
The Intel Xeon E5-2600 V4/ V3 product families are the first wave of server processors to support the DDR4 memory technology. Compared to DDR3, this new generation brings:
Get the Memory Performance Edge
On the previous server platforms from Intel, the maximum supported memory frequency has always been automatically downgraded by design when more DIMMs were being added on a server motherboard. As this trade-off between performance and capacity represents a dilemma to many memory-hungry server applications, GIGABYTE offers a unique solution. All our motherboards based on the LGA 2011-3 socket support by default a maximum frequency of 2400 MHz in any memory configuration.
Easy BIOS Update
Because updating your BIOS to a newer version can be a troublesome experience, GIGABYTE has developed this integrated function (no additional software to install) that lets you update the BIOS of your server / workstation motherboard(s):
- Without having to install CPUs, memory, drives, operating system, etc.
- Without having to power on the system (but a power supply must be connected)
- One board at a time via our IPMI 2.0 web interface
- Multiple boards simultaneously via command line

Remote System Management
This motherboard is equipped with an onboard Aspeed AST2400 controller, providing comprehensive remote system monitoring with a whole set of management features, such as:
- Remote Boot & Reset
- Remote Image Mounting
- Full Control Over Network, Users, Services, etc.
- Complete System Monitoring & Diagnostics
