AMD EPYC Processor

The RS700A-E9-RS12 is built on the AMD EPYC platform to deliver high server performance. With up to 32 cores per CPU and up to 128 threads in a single 1 RU server, the RS700A-E9-RS12 packs much power in minimal space.

Memory Bandwidth and Capacity

The RS700A-E9-RS12 supports up to 32 DDR4-2666 DIMMs for up to 4TB of RAM. An integrated I/O controller on the processor eliminates the data transfer bottlenecks caused by discrete I/O chipsets for reduced latency and faster system performance.

Comprehensive IT Infrastructure Management Software

The RS700A-E9-RS12 features an embedded iKVM module and comes with ASUS Control Center software to provide comprehensive in-band and out-of-band management features for small and mid-size businesses.

ASUS Control Center (ACC) is a centralized and integrated IT management platform for monitoring and controlling ASUS commercial products, including servers, workstations, and digital signage devices. ACC enables remote BIOS updates, monitoring of multiple systems via mobile devices, and one-click software updates and dispatching, allowing easier server management for any IT infrastructure.

The embedded ASMB9-iKVM module supports remote BIOS updates, fan control, standalone KVM, video recording, and BSOD capture, providing around-the-clock remote monitoring and diagnostics—even if the operating system is down or offline—through a user-friendly, web-based graphical interface that works with all major browsers.

Smart Thermal Design for Energy Efficiency

The RS700A-E9-RS12 features ASUS thermal radar technology with temperature sensors on the front panel and key components such as CPU, NVMe SSD, and OCP cards. This design provides internal and external temperature monitoring and enables dynamic fan curve adjustment, cutting fan power consumption by up to 20% and reducing TCO for non-stop operation in data centers and similar venues.

Server Fan Control

  • Adjust fan curve via BMC
  • User-friendly graphic user interface
  • Flexible fan policy
  • No reboot needed after changing fan policy
  • Remote-controllable fan curve
