ASUS announced new best-in-class server solutions powered by the latest4thGen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, formerly codenamed Sapphire Rapids, as well as support for the Intel Xeon MaxCPU series that are designed for improving performance on memory-bandwidth-sensitive applications.
ASUS servers continue to deliver leadership performance with support for up to 512 GB of DDR5 memory with up to 2X the performance and capability, plus PCI Express (PCIe) 5.0 — doubling I/O bandwidth. The new servers support a range of modern workloads, including artificial intelligence (AI), analytics, high-performance computing (HPC), graphic-intensive applications, machine learning, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and virtualization.
The flagship 2U4N ASUS RS720Q-E11-RS8U high-density server offers different cooling solutions for data centers. Being cooled via direct-to-chip (D2C) technology, it stands out from the competition to deliver over 92%-lower fan power consumption and noise levels that are 29.6% lower. In addition, this server is engineered with an Extended Volume Air Cooling (EVAC) heatsink to bring performance on supporting dual 350 W 4thGen Intel Xeon Scalable processors per node. It also supports single-phase immersion cooling for improved data-center power-usage effectiveness (PUE). All servers are available with ASUS Thermal Radar 2.0 and Power Balancer technologies for even-greater power efficiency.
ASUS has been working with industry-leading cooling partners, including Submer, Delta, MGC and Kaori, to deliver comprehensive cooling solutions. Select models are also designed for single-phase immersion cooling, supporting both EIA and OCP tanks with cooling distribution units (CDUs) and dry coolers— minimizing data-center PUE, carbon emissions and energy consumption.
RS720-E11, RS700-E11: Models in these series feature scalable computing, storage, networking and redundant components to support maximum performance for data-center flexibility, and are optimized for AI, data analytics, HPC, cloud, and enterprise workloads.
RS720Q-E11: ASUS high-performance, density-optimized and energy-efficient 2U4N servers are built to take on the most demanding workloads, delivering powerful computing performance and different cooling solutions to fit diverse applications.
ESC8000-E11: GPU server with up to eight PCIe GPUs, optimized for AI, HPC, deep learning and graphics-intensive applications, providing maximum acceleration, high performance, independent airflow-tunnel design and budget-balanced solutions.
ESR1-511-X4TF: 1U ultra-low footprint server with front-access design that’s perfect for edge computing and O-RAN CU/DU deployment. With 430 mm depth, ESR1-511-X4TF offers up to two FH3/4L slots for GPU and FPGA cards for edge AI computing. Select models include an integrated Intel vRANAccelerator ACC100 and Intel E810 time-synchronization module, creating resulting in the market’s most-TCO optimized DU solution. ESR1-511-X4TF also benefits from carrier-grade design and extended operating temperatures.
