This chapter describes the key features
of ESC1000 G2. It includes the product
overview and general specifications.
Product introduction
Chapter 1
1-
1.1
Key features
The ASUS ESC1000 G2 is a second generation professional workstation based on
the Intel® Xeon® E5-1600 processor platform, featuring three 5.25” media bays, four
hot-swap 3.5” SATA hard drive cages, 80PLUS Gold 1350W power supply, and six
PCI Express 3.0 x16 expansion slots. It is designed for professional applications
in fluid dynamics, medical research, engineering, the sciences, financial modeling,
real-time graphics, rendering, and heavy-duty ray tracing.
Quad-GPU support unleashes more computing power
Six PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots enable up to four double-deck GPUs, using new
Gen 3 links to provide double the bandwidth of PCI Express 2.0. Fully compatible
with NVIDIA® Quadro™ and Tesla™ GPUs, the ESC1000 G2 is ideal for SOHO
workplaces with its ability to handle massive computing tasks.
Dual Intel® Ethernet for fast networking
Twin Ethernet controllers support doubled network bandwidth, alongside teaming
and fault tolerance functions to offer extra-reliable and fast network connections.
ASUS SSD Caching
Unique design boosts system performance by using an installed SSD as a cache
for frequently accessed data. This allows you to access data easily and quickly
without wasting time waiting for data to transfer.
USB 3.0 Boost
The ESC1000 G2 detects and optimizes connected device protocols automatically
for faster USB speeds in all usage scenarios.
Maximum power supply with DIGI+ for demanding workloads
The 1350W 80PLUS Gold power supply unit cuts down system power loss and
improves energy efficiency, saving users money on operating costs. With exclusive
ASUS DIGI+ Power, the ESC1000 G2 utilizes precise power adjustments on both
the processor and memory modules, providing higher system stability.
DTS® Ultra PC II
A brand-new friendly interface brings more functions, including symmetry, audio
restoration, and enhancement. DTS® symmetry monitors and balances level
differences between all digital audio formats, while audio restoration reconstructs
percussion and transient sounds from compressed sources to restore lost punch
and clarity.
AI Suite II
The ESC1000 G2 is bundled with ASUS AI Suite II, which provides one-stop utility
management and a user-friendly interface for system tuning.

Chapter 1: Product introduction
Cutting-edge architecture
The ESC1000 G2 supports new Intel® Sandy Bridge-E processors. With eight
DIMM slots and DDR3 1600, it accommodates up to 64GB in memory capacity,
providing high computing capabilities. Extra PCI Express 3.0 lanes are perfect for
systems that require high I/O connectivity and bandwidth, with support for more
compatible devices.
