Performance Driven for Mission Critical Applications
EPU for Extreme Energy Efficiency
The Z8PE-D12X is equipped with the ASUS exclusive EPU technology to provide total system power efficiency by detecting current loadings and intelligently moderating power in real-time to ensure the best power management.
ASUS PIKE Supported
With the ASUS optional PIKE providing slim-sized and flexible storage options, direct SAS RAID upgrades can be achieved directly via a unique slot—without sacrificing expansion capability. The ASUS PIKE further provides customers with multiple I/O solutions and RAID functions; and is compatible with all ASUS Tylersburg DP MB for future use.
Dual Use for Server and Workstation with Flex-E Technology and MIO Card
The ASUS Flex-E Technology provides the flexibility to auto-switch between 1 PCI-E x16 link (Graphic card supported) and 2 PCI-E x8 link (for I/O expansion), allowing the customers to use PCI-E link more flexible.
Furthermore, the MIO audio card offers great sound quality to complement the robust video power for workstation users.
High Quality Components for Greater System Reliability
The ASUS 6-Phase CPU power and 3-Phase memory power design provides support for the high-end 130W CPU; and delivers highly efficient and reliable operations.
Furthermore, the Z8PE-D12X utilizes ALL Japan-made ultra long life solid capacitors onboard for durability, which sustain 57 years at 65? and enhanced thermal capacity.
Optional ASMB4-iKVM Upgrade Kit for Easy Troubleshooting
The optional ASMB4-iKVM upgrade kit provides remote real-time full control access to the system based on BIOS-level by keyboard, video monitor and mouse (KVM over Ethernet) from any local computer anywhere, anytime.
Designed for Virtualization
Virtualization provides central management through a hub and reduces power consumption and cost for cooling and space requirements. The Z8PE-D12X is able to provide excellent virtualization applications with ISV certification. The onboard vertical USB connector is designed for VMWare ESXi, to make full use of the system resource and reduce the TCO and IT expense.
Native DDR3 Support for Higher Bandwidth Requirements
The Z8PE-D12X supports UDIMM and RDIMM DDR3 memory that features data transfer rates of 1333/1066MHz to meet higher bandwidth requirements for server and workstation applications. This voltage reduction from 1.8V for DDR2 to just 1.5V for DDR3 limits the power consumption and heat generation of DDR3, making it an ideal memory solution.
