Powered by AMD EPYC™ 7002 series processors The AMD EPYC™ 7002 processor features the world's first 7nm datacenter-design and a PCI Express® 4.0-capable x86 server processor with up to 2X the performance and 4X the floating-point capability. With support for up to 64 cores, 128 threads, 8-channel DDR4 3200, 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes and up to 280 watts of max. thermal design power (TDP), this processor also includes memory and virtualization encryption features to ensure exceptional security. PCIe 4.0 expansion PCIe® 4.0 delivers 16 GT/s bandwidth - double the speed of PCIe 3.0 - while offering lower power consumption, better lane scalability and backwards compatibility. ASUS ESC4000A-E10 features up to eleven PCIe 4.0 slots to support a diverse array of graphics, storage and networking applications, such as HBA/RAID, NIC and InfiniBand (IB) cards. GPU and FPGA support ESC4000A-E10 features a powerful GPU architecture that supports up to four double-slot or eight single-slot GPUs in a 2U chassis, including NVIDIA® A100, Tesla® or Quadro®, plus features NVIDIA NVLink® Bridge to enable scaling of performance in order to meet the demands of AI and high-performance computing, and to securely run workloads in virtualization environments. ESC4000A-E10 is also a Xilinx Alveo-qualified server to provide optimized acceleration for workloads across cloud and on-premises data centers, and for hybrid cloud environments in financial computing, machine learning, computational storage, and data search and analytics. Flexible front panel design ESC4000A-E10 features a flexible front panel design that allows for easy storage and network expansions and upgrades. The design offers easier accessibility of up to four NVMe SSD drives and an optional choice of OCP 3.0, a hyper M.2 adapter or HBA/RAID card via PCIe 4.0 slot for better performance and lower latency. NVIDIA RTX server ESC4000A-E10 is a NVIDIA RTX server validate system that deliver unprecedented performance at a fraction of the cost, space, and power requirements of traditional CPU-based solutions, from production rendering to scalable visualization systems or HPC, AI, ML, big data analytics, and at the edge deployment options. Ultrafast connectivity for HPC applications ESC4000A-E10 features a OCP 3.0 mezzanine card to deliver speeds of up to 200 Gbps for HPC applications that require high-bandwidth, low-latency network support for connecting multiple nodes and clusters. Scalable storage design To effectively manage the storage demands of growing amounts of data, ESC4000A-E10 has a dense chassis design that accommodates up to eight 3.5-inch or 2.5- inch drives, including up to four NVMe SSDs support. One onboard 22110-length M.2 SSD allows faster data transfer speeds for OS installation, and a hyper M.2 card is available to provide even greater expansion capability. Performance Boost technology ASUS servers feature exclusive Performance Boost technology to achieve the best server performance and agility by tuning servers to match the requirements of workloads, letting you gain greater control of your server environment. This technology improves workload throughput by maximizing processor frequency and boost power, ideal for time-sensitive applications such as financial services or data center operations. In the BIOS you can choose from pre-configured server profiles optimized for specific workloads, maximizing overall performance and reducing server-configuration time.
