      No.1 Performance in Industry-standard SPEC Benchmarks

      RS720-E9-RS12-E supports two of the latest Intel Xeon Scalable Family processors, featuring 205W CPUs with 56 cores and 112 threads for leading performance. It also has 24 memory slots that fit up to 3TB of DDR4 2666 memory for intensive computing.

      Scalable Design for Growing Workloads

      RS720-E9-RS12-E is designed for easy scalability to fit growing businesses and multiple workloads. It is available with a choice of six PCIe Gen3 x8 or three PCIe Gen3 x16 links to fit full-height, full-length GPU cards, and it features one PCIe x16 slot for an HBA/RAID card ready to deliver parallel computing power.

      RS720-E9-RS12-E also features multiple interface types for flexible storage configurations, including dual PCIe or SATA M.2, and port-to-port OCuLink with Intel VROC technology for four hot-swappable 2.5-inch NVMe SSDs.

      Ultrafast Connectivity for HPC Applications

      RS720-E9-RS12-E features two embedded 1 Gigabit Ethernet ports and supports up to 25 Gigabit interconnect speeds with the addition of PCIe adapter cards for ultrafast connectivity. Additionally, it supports one OCP 2.0 Mezzanine card (Gen3 x16 link) for HPC applications that require high-bandwidth, low-latency network support to connect multiple nodes and clusters.

      Exclusive Thermal Radar Technology for Energy Efficiency

      RS720-E9-RS12-E features ASUS-exclusive thermal radar technology with ambient sensors for internal and external temperature monitoring, and dynamic fan curve adjustment, which lowers fan power consumption by up to 20% and reduces total cost of ownership - ideal for data centers with extreme workloads.

      Redundant Titanium PSU support

      850W 80 Plus Titanium power supplies with 96%+ efficiency directly reduce operating costs and capital expenses.

      ASUS ProCool Connector

      ASUS ProCool is the power connector reinvented. Compared with traditional power connectors, ProCool connectors provide a more secure, low resistance connection, enabling better heat dissipation and improved reliability.

      Comprehensive IT Infrastructure Management

      RS720-E9-RS12-E 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 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.

      Simplified Maintenance and Management

      In addition to its built-in infrastructure automation engine for in-band and out-of-band management, RS720-E9-RS12-E has thoughtful and intuitive maintenance and management features designed to save IT staff time, improve operational efficiency and enable faster troubleshooting.

      Quick initialization guidance

      RS720-E9-RS12-E provides instant system information during initialization and reports any unusual diagnostic results for more efficient IT operation and easy troubleshooting.

      Visible Q-Code

      RS720-E9-RS12-E has a visible Q-Code/port 80 LED display LED for simple monitoring of the entire boot process, from power on through loading of the operating system.

      OS drive installation and debugging

      An internal USB 3.0 port accepts boot disks, providing a safer way to install Linux or VMware Hypervisor as well as additional access for debugging.

      MicroSD card support

      MicroSD support facilitates remote OS updates via image files, log data tracking and video storage.
