Supermicro Jams Two Ice Lake Xeon Sockets Into Upcoming ATX Motherboards

Thanks to Anandtech, we have information on two new Supermicro motherboards designed for Intel’s new Ice Lake Xeon Scalable CPUs: the 12DPL-NT6 and X12DPL-i6. The boards feature dual LGA4189 sockets — for a max potential configuration of 80 CPU cores all squished into a standard ATX form factor.

The stand-out feature of the X12DPL-NT6 and X12DPL-i6 is the ATX form factor; Supermicro has demonstrated it can put two gigantic LGA4189 sockets onto an ATX board without sacrificing many features; the two sockets alone take up nearly half of the entire board’s size.
