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 versus the previous 7001 generation. With support for up to 64 cores, 128 threads, 8-channels DDR4 3200, and 128 PCIe 4.0 lanes, this processor is also designed with encryption features in memory and virtualization for security assurance.


    Rich I/O expansion with PCIe 4.0

    PCIe 4.0 offers a 16 GT/s that doubles the bandwidth of PCIe 3.0 and delivers lower power consumption, better lane scalability and backwards compatibility. KRPA-U16 features up to 5 PCIe lanes, including two PCIe 4.0 lanes, and one PCIe 4.0 x24 that can be split to separate x16 and x8 link with an ASUS butterfly card for more storage and graphics power, or for network expansion.

    No.1 Performance in Industry-standard SPEC Benchmarks
    Ultrafast connectivity for HPC applications

    KRPA-U16 features two embedded Gigabit Ethernet ports and supports up to 100G or higher interconnect speeds with the addition of a PCIe 4.0 (Gen 4 x16 link) for its OCP 2.0 mezzanine card for HPC applications that require high-bandwidth, low-latency network support to connect multiple nodes and clusters. ASUS offers an authorized validation OCP mezzanine card for these models.

    Scalable Design for Growing Workloads
    More storage, NVMe solutions

    Designed for higher storage throughput performance and storage responsiveness for advanced computing, KRPA-U16 features 12 NVMe solutions with six onboard Oculink ports via a PCIe x4 link and six additional Oculink ports via an ASUS riser card for faster data transfers. Additionally, 16 SATA and SAS drives are available for budget-friendly applications.

    Ultrafast Connectivity for HPC Applications
    Speed up with onboard M.2

    With x4 PCI Express® 4.0 bandwidth, KRPA-U16 features up to 32Gbps M.2 for faster data-transfer speeds — ideal for an operating system or application drive.

    Redundant Platinum PSU support
    Comprehensive IT infrastructure management

    KRPA-U16 features an embedded iKVM module and ASUS Control Center software 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.

    ASUS Control Center (ACC) is a centralized and integrated IT management platform for monitoring and controlling ASUS commercial products, including servers, workstations and digital signage. 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.
