The 2022 ExpertCenter lineup comprises a diverse selection of chassis styles, configurations and price points, ensuring that there is a model for every need and budget. The latest ExpertCenter Essential (D5), Advanced (D7) and Premium (D9) desktops are meticulously engineered to deliver professional performance, easy maintenance, enterprise-grade security and manageability, as well as being built to military-grade standards of strength and resilience.

Professional performance

Each and every model in the all-new 2022 ExpertCenter PC lineup delivers unwavering business performance, powered by the latest up to Intel Core i9 processor and up to 128 GB of DDR5 4800 MHz memory. They’re also able to draw on superior graphics power, with a choice of professional-grade discrete NVIDIA GPUs – up to GeForce RTX™ 3060 or RTX™ A2000.

The latest ExpertCenter D9 models push professional-level performance, reliability and security to new heights, being based on the latest Intel Q670 chipset and boasting the Intel vPro® platform that’s Built for Business.

MyASUS is also included with every ExpertCenter PC. This is an intuitive portal to a selection of useful ASUS apps that are designed to help users get more out of their computers. One business-friendly feature of MyASUS is the ability to manage fan profiles for different scenarios. So, for example, when raw speed is of the essence, Performance mode can be enabled to accelerate cooling and maximize computing power. Then, when quiet, efficient performance is needed, Standard mode can be set with a click.

MyASUS also empowers users to pair their ExpertCenter PC with an iOS or Android device, allowing them to control AI noise-cancelation features or make contact with ASUS after-sales service and support.

Easy maintenance

A key design pillar of the 2022 ExpertCenter PC series is easy maintenance and upgradability. Each model has its own selection of specific features, such as a tool-free chassis1 that can be opened up without the need for a screwdriver, and a variety of quick-release internal components. With D900SD and D700SD, for example, both the hard disk and optical drives can be easily removed with just fingers. This saves time and effort, making component upgrades and routine servicing easy.

The latest ExpertCenter desktops are also easy to upgrade. Access to the memory slots is unhindered by other components, and both mini-tower and full-tower models have plenty of room inside for expansion cards and other upgrades. The small-form-factor (SFF) models even feature a rotatable cage, maximizing the internal space and making it simple to maintain or upgrade the drives.

Enterprise ready

ExpertCenter PCs, refreshed for 2022, are engineered with security in mind. They also offer a variety of included and optional features for easy IT management features.

ExpertCenter D9, for instance, has the Intel vPro platform integrated. This provides a framework that lightens the workload of an organization's IT department to improve overall operational efficiency. Built-in security provides threat mitigation, identity and access protection, as well as data and asset protection. The vPro platform also enables remotely-managed automated troubleshooting and advanced virtualization, reducing administration costs and ensuring that data is kept secure.

ASUS Control Center is also available with ExpertCenter desktops. This is a centralized IT-management suite that is capable of remote management, hardware and software monitoring, and task scheduling via a user-friendly web-based interface, allowing system administrators to conveniently manage company assets through a single portal.

An optional TPM 2.0 chip, available with any ExpertCenter PC model, securely stores key authentication information, including passwords and data-protecting encryption keys. The new desktops also benefit from ASUS Business Manager, which includes USB Blocker data-movement controls, system back-track to restore the system to its optimal status, and an encrypted virtual partition to store important data.

Military-grade toughness

ExpertCenter PCs have always been built to last — and the 2022 models are no exception. Our engineers have designed and constructed them to ensure they’re able to meet or even surpass the most demanding industry requirements. This includes the latest MIL-STD-810H US military standards, as well as exacting in-house testing by ASUS.

To ensure ExpertCenter desktops are ready for the rigors of life in the office and other business environments we shake them, shock them and drop them. We expose them to extreme temperatures and humidity levels, and even test the packaging we use to ship them. All this ensures that ExpertCenter PC are tough enough to withstand everyday knocks and bumps, from delivery to daily productivity.

They’re also built with ASUS motherboards — the world’s best-selling brand — which are renowned for offering comprehensive system protection to safeguard hardware, 24/7 stability through extensive testing of their own and consistent performance.

Sustainability

ASUS is committed to creating sustainable products, and the 2022 ExpertCenter desktops are no exception. The latest models are equipped with up to 80 PLUS® Platinum power supply units (PSUs), an industry-standard indication of minimized energy waste. Compared to lesser models, 80 PLUS Platinum-certified PSUs run cooler, quieter and cost less to run — benefiting both the local and wider environment, and the total cost of operation to business.

They also carry both ENERGY STAR® and EPEAT certifications. The first is a symbol, backed by the US government, that indicates an acceptable level of energy efficiency to provide simple, credible and unbiased information for consumers and businesses. The Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) marque, also awarded to the 2022 ExpertCenter PCs, demands products must meet a broad array of environmental-performance criteria. These include materials selection, a reduction in supply-chain greenhouse-gas emission, product longevity, energy conservation, end-of-life management and corporate performance.
