ASUS showcases ESC500 G4 SFF, ESC700 G3 and ESC4000 G3 at EA Symposium 2017

1. ESC500-G4 SFF – Small Form Factor workstation with the latest processing, graphics and storage technology


Key points:
Drive three independent displays simultaneously
The ESC500 G4 gives users the ability to multitask on up to three independent displays simultaneously through HDBI, DisplayPort, DVI-D, VGA ports in a compatible latest-generation Intel® processor.

ISV Certified
The ESC G4 SFF workstation gets most popular ISV (Independent Software Vendor) certified with great performance and productivity.
Certified software applications include:

Built-in Dual Intel I120 Server-Class Gigabit LAN
For more reliable networking, the ESC500 G4 SFF workstation features the latest server class built-in dual Intel® Gigabit LAN. This leads to lower CPU utilisation and temperature, achieving outstanding performance as well as better support for diverse operating systems.



2.ESC700-G3 – STREAMLINE AIRFLOW DESIGN WITH SUPREME POWER SOLUTION


Key points:
The world’s fastest deskside deep-learning machine
Deep-learning is at the forefront of computing innovation. It leverages both machine-learning and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to discover new knowledge from big data. ASUS has chosen the X99-E WS to be part of the ESC700-G3 tower workstation for its delivery of genuine 4-way x16 graphics power, freedom to explore multiple network architectures, and accelerated dataset manipulation. 

Streamline-airflow design with CPU and memory slots in a parallel arrangement
ESC700 G3 delivers superior flexibility and performance with Intel® 2011-v3 socket, eight DDR4 DIMM slots, and five PCI-E 3.0x16 slots. Furthermore, ESC700 G3’s layout is designed for optimal airflow, with the processor and memory slots placed in a parallel arrangement, providing optimized cooling for increased efficiency.

Supreme Power Solutions
ASUS ESC700 G3 couples innovative thinking with premium components to deliver industry-leading power efficiency. It is carefully engineered with Beat Thermal Chokes made of highly conductive and efficient gold-treating coating for minimal-loss power delivery. For the latest workstation motherboard, ASUS introduce the industry's most durable 12K solid capacitors, and exclusive ASUS ProCool power connectors.

The leading IO Scalability
Evolve your storage speed with SATA Express. SATA Express provides up to 10Gbit/s data-transfer speeds from two PCIE 2.0 lanes, resolving the higher bandwidth request in the near future. The current SSDs consume up to 550MB/s, which is close to saturation point for SATA 6Gbit/s connections.

Furthermore, with 2 x PCI-Express 2.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 10 Gbit/s data transfer speeds. It is the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive, making your whole PC or professional applications work as fast as possible.

3.       ESC4000 – G3: Green500 Champion Successor



Key points:
8+2 Flexible Expansion Slots for 4 GPUs and divers high bandwidth interconnection HBA Support

The ESC4000 G3 supports up to eight PCI-E Gen3 x16 slots in 2U for high density computing and high expandability, compatible with versatile expansion cards, especially in supporting up-to-date Intel® Xeon Phi series, NVIDIA Tesla and GRIDTM Family, as well as AMD FirePro S Series of GPU accelerators. Initially, high-density computing is designed specifically to pack greater processing power into a rack. In ESC4000 G3, it can carry up to 4 double-deck GPUs offering extreme high density and parallel computing power.

Intelligent System Fan III for improved airflow and lower running costs

With intelligent system fan III, independent smart fans provide cooling for each area of the GPU and CPU separately, and a redundant fan design for GPU area provides an extra thermal back-up solution. Intelligent system fan III offers dedicated airflow towards GPU and GPU as well as offering flexibility in fan allocation.

1 + 1 Platinum Redundant PSUs

The ESC4000 G3 is equipped with a 2000W/1620W 80 PLUS Platinum level redundant power supply with VR power efficiency up to 95% for energy savings, while the hot swappable design reduces power loss, improves power efficiency and save more TCO for users.
