Support Up-To-Date AMD 16/12 Core CPU
KGPE-D16 is based on latest AMD G34 chipset architecture to support 45nm Opteron™ 6300/6200/6100 series processors. The platform is designed for highly threaded application, delivering 16/12/8 core multi-core performance, quad HT3 links with up to 6.4GT/S interconnect rate per link, and 12 MB shared L3 cache.
Standard EEB with 16 DIMMs & Industrial Standard Riser Card Slot (Slot 6)
KGPE-D16 is designed in EEB (12” x 13”) form factor, with 16 DDR3 1600* memory DIMMs to support up to 256GB (RDIMM). By supporting industrial standard PCI-E x16 (Gen2 x16 link) Full Height & Full Length Card in 1U, this board offers you highest memory capacity without source for proprietary chassis & riser solution.
* DDR3 1600 can only be supported with AMD Opteron 6300/6200 series processor.
Dual Use for Server (rack ready) & Workstation
The ASUS Flex-E technology provides the flexibility to auto-switch between 2 true PCI-E x16 Link (support 2 double deck graphic cards) or 1 PCI-E x16 Link & 2 PCI-E x8 Link (for I/O expansion). Moreover, the boards supports ASUS MIO audio card, which offers enhanced signal-to-noise ratio in a 7.1 surround channel setup to deliver exhilarating surround sound for professional usage.
High Quality Components for Greater System Reliability & 85% Power Efficiency
ASUS is the first company to phase in 6-Phase CPU power, 3-Phase memory power and All Ultra Long Life Solid capacitors on serverboard in the market. These features not only provide the support for high-end 140W CPU, but also deliver highly efficient and reliable operations.
ASUS PIKE SAS2 6G Storage Supported
KGPE-D16 supports ASUS PIKE (Proprietary I/O Kit Expansion) 2008/IMR for RIAD 0, 1, 10, and 5; and PIKE 2008 for RAID 0, 1, 10 and 1E. The design of ASUS PIKE brings 2 key advantages:
- Provide flexible SAS storage add-on card selection.
- Board edge design: locate PIKE expansion at the edge of the board for full height card support when PIKE is installed.
Optional ASMB4-iKVM for Remote Management
The optional ASMB4-iKVM provides remote real-time full control access to the system based on BIOS-level by keyboard, video monitor and mouse (KVM over Ethernet) from any local computer anywhere, anytime.
