WIN Enterprise Inc. has unveiled the PL-84020 a 2U rackmount, high-performance networking system that supports dual AMD EPYC 7003/7002 (Milan/Rome) processors. Based on AMD’s new Zen 3 CPU, the unit delivers breakthrough performance. The CPU supports up to 64 processing cores, a 256 MB cache and 128 PCIe Gen 4 lanes.


  • 8x channel double data rate fourth generation (DDR4) 3200 MHz memory, up to 4 TB
  • 8x PCIe x8 for network expansion module
  • 2 inch x 2.5 inch HDD/SSD, 2x M.2 2280
  • Optional support for IPMI card with video graphics array

The high-performance platform supports 8x channels of DDR4 RDIMM (up to 3200MHz) and maximum memory capacity up to 4TB per socket. With 64 forward facing PCI Express Gen 4 lanes, PL-84020 supports up to 8 network expansion modules; multiple Ethernet module bays for flexible port configuration such as Source: WIN Enterprise Inc.Source: WIN Enterprise Inc.1/10/25/40/100 Gigabit fiber, copper with BYPASS function or not. The maximum capable Ethernet port is up to 64x 1GbE, up to 64x 10GbE, up to 32x 25GbE, up to 8x 100GbE ports. The 8x PCIe Gen4 x8 Expansion bay flexibly supports newly designed 2 inch x 2.5 inch U.2 NVMe SSD tray, and GPU/FPGA add-on card swappable tray. PL-84020 is an ideal computing server for Edge and artificial intelligence workloads.

The strong IO elements of PL-84020 includes 2x management ports (i.e., one for management and another for onboard BMC/IPMI functions), a console port, a graph LCD module with keypad (5 keys), LEDs for power/ HDD/2 x GPIO. In addition, the PL-84020 supports 2 inch x 2.5 inch SATA HDDs/SSDs hot-swappable, onboard one mSATA and two M.2 2280 slots for basic network storage applications.
