ASUS Z10PE-D16/2L/10G-2T is perfectly built for expandability and extreme computing performance. ASUS Z10PE-D16/2L/10G-2T provides high bandwidth connectivity with built-in dual Intel® 10GBase-T and dual 1GbE networking. It also has mass storage capacity and variety, along with an M.2 slot for added flexibility; furthermore it is engineered with premium components for premium efficiency which is up to 94%. Together with optimized user experience and an intuitive remote-management solution, Z10PE-D16/2L/10G-2T is ideal for enterprise general purpose and being the computing/memcache node in the datacenter.
High bandwidth networking
With built-in dual Intel® 10G Base-T networking, Z10PE-D16/2L/10G-2T increases data throughput and improves datacenter efficiency - and that means more environmentally-friendly operation. You're able to build high-density, high-bandwidth and low-latency access-layer networks for your datacenter on a board.
Mass storage capacity and variety
Z10PE-D16/2L/10G-2T is equipped with ten 6 Gb/s SATA ports, offering support for mass storage capacity. In an alternative configuration, Z10PE-D16/2L/10G-2T has nine 6Gb/s SATA and an M.2 slot for a solid-state drive - ideal for an operating system boot drive! In this generation, ASUS has a whole new PIKE solution, standard PCI-E form factor for user to equip with multiple PIKE II cards on one motherboard which maximizes the expandability and utilizations. Just placing the PIKE II card, Z10PE-D16/2L/10G-2T can immediately enlarge the capacity, upgrade to 12G solution and improve the performance, making it the great upgrade option.
Multiple expandability with 5 PCI-E Gen3 slots
Z10PE-D16/2L/10G-2T has great expandability with five expansion ports: three PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots and two PCI Express 3.0 x8 slots. Additionally, Z10PE-D16/2L/10G-2T is equipped for a diverse range of applications including the usage of multiple host bus adapters (HBA).
Premium components for premium efficiency
ASUS Z10 server board series design the premium power solution with the hand-chosen components and provide premium efficiency which is up to 94%. The premium power solution consist 4 pillars to achieve the 94% premium efficiency: Beat Thermal Choke, Dr. MOS, 12K capacitor and Digi+ VRM. A special fin design of Beat-Thermal-Choke results in 3-5?-lower choke temperatures and raise the stability, and translates into minimal-loss power delivery. The Dr. MOS is a proven stable circuit integrated MOSFET, which can optimize the switching performance and contribute the efficiency to the system. ASUS DIGI+ VRM design empowers users with superior flexibility and has the perfect precision to ensure optimized performance, extreme system stability. Moreover, ASUS is the world's first server manufacturer to introduce 12K solid capacitors which are able to withstand up to 1,200,000 hours of temperatures as high as 65°C (12K hours@105°C). These 12K capacitors can also lower equivalent series resistance (ESR) and thus to increase efficiency and minimal heat generation.
