ASUS today announced that its new-generation E7 servers, Z9P server boards, ESC4000 G2 and ESC2000 G2 workstations and Z9PE-D8 WS, P9X79-E WS and P9X79 WS workstation boards support the latest Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v2 processors.
The new ASUS server and workstation products designed for Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 processors — previously codenamed Ivy Bridge-EP — provide extreme computing power, highly optimized power efficiency and great scalability, making them the perfect fit for demanding enterprise environments.
ASUS servers and server boards also offer easy-to-use remote server management, via ASUS System Web-based Management (ASWM) Enterprise and ASMB6-iKVM, an Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) 2.0-compliant remote-server-management module.
More power, more efficient, more secure
The latest ASUS servers, server boards, workstations and workstation boards are built to fully exploit the potential of Intel’s new Xeon E5-2600 v2 processor family. ASUS E7, Z9P, ESC4000 G2, ESC2000 G2, Z9PE-D8 WS and P9X79-E WS series products with Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 processors deliver high raw computing power, with clock speeds of up to 3.5GHz and core counts up to 12 (24 threads).
The latest 22nm manufacturing process and three-dimensional ‘tri-gate’ transistor technology have reduced power demands, meaning ASUS enterprise products fitted with Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 processors offer better energy efficiency than ever before. ASUS servers and ESC series workstations also include 80 Plus-certified power supplies that are at least 80% efficient, reducing power consumption and lowering energy bills.
Highly expandable and super-fast data transfers
The new-generation ASUS servers, server boards, workstation and workstation boards feature multiple PCI Express 3.0 slots for the addition of graphics cards and other add-on cards. One expansion slot is reserved for the ASUS PIKE (Proprietary I/O Kit Expansion) card, providing a simple and cost-effective path for SAS/SATA storage upgrades for multiple RAID configurations.
All models include SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connectivity for fast data transfers — of up to 5Gbit/s.
Flexible remote management
The new-generation ASUS enterprise products offer advanced remote-management options via ASWM Enterprise and the ASMB6-iKVM module. ASWM Enterprise provides an easy-to-use graphical interface allowing for simple, centralized asset management, including BIOS flashing and power control, while the IPMI 2.0-compliant ASMB6-iKVM module enables out-of-band (or lights-out management) of equipment – so control can be gained even if the remote equipment is powered off.
In addition to the release of the Exynos2100 processor, Samsung also confirmed a major event at this Exynos event, that is, the custom GPU that they have worked with AMD for many years will soon appear and will be used on the next flagship machine. The current Exynos2100 processor uses ARM’s Mali-G78GPU core with a total of 14 cores, so the GPU architecture developed by Samsung will be the next Exynos processor, and the GPU will be the focus. This is probably the meaning of Exynos2100’s GPU stacking. The key reason. Dr. InyupKang, president of Samsung’s LSI business, confirmed that the next-generation mobile GPU in cooperation with AMD will be used in the next flagship product, but he did not specify which product. Samsung is not talking about the next-generation flagship but the next one, so it is very likely that a new Exynos processor will be available this year, either for the GalaxyNote21 series or the new generation of folding screen GalaxyZFold3. In 2019, AMD and Samsung reached
