Extremely Strong Hybrid Computing Power with Complete I/O Integration
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
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.
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.
