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 virtualisation 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.


Multi-GPU 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®. With so much graphics power, ESC4000A-E10 can complete demanding computing tasks more quickly and with greater efficiency.

ESC4000A-E10 also supports 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 virtualisation environments.


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 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 visualisation 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.

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 maximising 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 optimised for specific workloads, maximising overall performance and reducing server-configuration time.


Thermal control technology

ASUS features server thermal-control technologies to provide real-time server temperature monitoring, intelligent fan-curve adjustments, and continue delivering the value of optimised power-efficiency.


ASUS Thermal Radar 2.0

ASUS Thermal Radar 2.0 takes advantage of placing up to 56 ambient sensors on the front panel of a server as well as in components for temperature monitoring. It can perform intelligent fan-curve adjustments to fit the real-time server usage patterns, lowering fan power-consumption by up to 36% and reducing total cost of ownership — ideal for data centers with extreme workloads.


ASUS Power Balancer

ASUS Power Balancer is an exclusive technology that enables ASUS servers to adjust overall loading automatically based on real-time monitoring in order to decrease overall power consumption for improved efficiency and cost/performance optimisation.


Comprehensive IT infrastructure management

ESC4000A-E10 features an embedded iKVM module and is bundled with ASUS Control Center to provide comprehensive out-of-band and in-band management features for small and mid-size businesses.

The embedded ASMB9-iKVM module supports remote BIOS updates, fan control, standalone KVMs, video recording, and BSOD capture, providing around-the-clock remote monitoring and diagnostics — even if the operating system is down or offline — through a user-friendly, web-based graphical interface that works with all major browsers.

ASUS Control Center (ACC) is a centralised and integrated IT management platform for monitoring and controlling ASUS commercial products, including servers, workstations, and Mini PCs. ACC enables remote BIOS updates, monitoring of multiple systems via mobile devices, and one-click software updates and dispatching, allowing easier server management for any IT infrastructure.
