Dual CPU overclocking for incredible performance
Z10PE-D8 WS breaks performance barriers by giving you the capability to overclock dual CPUs. Ai Overclock Tuner and Xeon Turbo Charger in the BIOS are dedicated to boosting the CPU’s overclocking performance by up to 10% to reach incredible CPU High Performance Linpack (HPL) scores and improves SPEC CPU™ 2006 benchmark results by up to 6.77%.
HPL Linkpack Test Configuration:
MB:Z10PE-D8 WS / CPU : Intel Xeon E5-2699 V3/DRAM: Samsung 16GB DDR4-2133 RDIMM*8 /O.S: Windows 8.1_64
SPEC CPU™ 2006 Test Configuration:
MB:Z10PE-D8 WS / CPU : Intel Xeon E5-2699 V3/DRAM: Samsung 16GB DDR4-2133 RDIMM*8 /O.S:REHL64-bit 6.5 Kernel
Q-Code Logger – one-touch checker
Q-Code logger is your one-touch checker that lets users easily check system status at any time. Plug a flash drive into adjacent USB port, press the motherboard's dedicated Q-Code logger button and all ASUS Q-Code event logs for the current live session will be copied to the drive even with the system off.
Dr. Power for intelligent PSU detection
As the Z10PE-D8 WS is meant for professional users who rely on non-stop operation, stable power delivery is critical. Real time power supply health detection helps prevent sudden system shutdown and provides hassle-free notifications should power delivery be insufficient. Additionally, LED messages on the board clearly indicate any relevant power issues in the event your system fails to boot.
Ultra-fast transfer speed
Evolve your storage speed with SATA Express
SATA Express provides up to 10Gbit/s data-transfer speeds from two PCIE 2.0 lanes, resolving the higher bandwidth request in the near future. The current SSDs consume up to 550MB/s, which is close to saturation point for SATA 6Gbit/s connections. Backwardly compatible with up to two SATA drives, SATA Express is the next-generation connectivity standard — and ensures that you and your system won't get left behind.
Speed up your system with M.2
With four native PCI Express 3.0 bandwidth, M.2 supports up to 32Gbit/s data-transfer speeds and up to 22110 NGFF. It is the perfect choice for an operating system drive, making your whole PC work that much faster.
Total Feature Enhancement with Complete I/O
Z10PE-D8 WS packs advanced features onto a standard Enterprise Electronics Bay (EEB) form factor to deliver superior flexibility and performance, with dual Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3 sockets, eight DDR4 DIMM slots, and seven PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots. Z10PE-D8 WS also has ten USB 3.0 ports, eight SATA 6Gbit/s and two of the latest SATA Express connectors — so you’ll benefit from data transfers of up to 16Gbit/s! It also offers superb multimedia, with 7.1-channel DTS-HD® Master Audio output.
Faster charging with USB Charger+
USB Charger+ charges USB devices up to three times (3X) faster than traditional USB sockets. Use it to juice up your smart devices even when the PC is asleep, hibernating or powered off — a brilliant convenience! * Charging speed may vary by product.
