Combat Model with Legacy PCI Support
The ASUS P10S-X is a new UP serverboard designed as an Intel® Greenlow platform entry model to provide a cost and power-efficient platform. The P10S-X is based on the Intel® C232 chipset, featuring dual server-class Intel® Ethernet, native 6 SATA 6G onboard, 2 Gen3 expansion slots to provide advanced I/O design. Moreover, it supports up to 4 legacy PCI slots to reserve the usage ability of legacy PCI devices.
Dual Intel® I210AT Gigabit Ethernet
The ASUS P10S-X ships with dual server-class Intel® Ethernet ports with the I210 controllers, which doubles queues compared to previous-generation Intel® controllers. This is better for virtualization applications. In addition, the dual LAN teaming double the network bandwidth and the failover function ensures uninterrupted network connections.
Next-Gen Storage – NVMe Support
Next-Gen Storage technology – NVMe is where the industry is headed. By taking new NVM technology closer to the CPU with the benefits of less latency and higher maximum bandwidth, NVMe solution is the fastest internal storage interface today.
To implement NVMe application on P10S-X, users can directly plug the PCIe NVMe devices or through ASUS-made PCIe to U.2 adapter (ASUS PCIE-NVME1). By using mini-SAS HD to min-SAS HD cable or mini-SAS HD to SFF-8639 cable, the ASUS-made PCIe to U.2 adapter offer flexible NVMe upgrade package on different usage scenario.
*ASUS PCIE-NVME1, cables are optional items.
High Power Efficiency with Platinum Power Solution
ASUS P10S-X serverboard is designed with the platinum power solution with the hand-chosen components and provide platinum efficiency which is up to 93%. The platinum power solution consists 3 pillars to achieve the 93% platinum efficiency: 12K Ultra Longevity Solid Capacitor ,Beat Thermal Choke III and Digi+ VRM. 12K solid capacitors which is able to withstand up to 1,200,000 hours of temperatures as high as 65°C (12K hours@105°C). The 3rd generation Beat Thermal Choke with lower DCR and result in 3℃-lower choke temperatures enhance power efficiency. ASUS DIGI+ VRM is digital VR controller precisely provide the accurate voltage/current that CPU require to reduce switching loss. Therefore, using in non-stop server machine running 24 hours per day, it will reduce electronic cost for customers in this generation products.
Serviceability – Quick Boot
The ASUS P10 Series features quick initialization guidance which let users realize system initialization state in seconds; Turn on the power button comes with key information showing on the screen at the same time: (1) progress bar showcases the booting status, (2) 2-digit POST code messages are available to give users a total understanding of startup process and to clearly indicate boot-up status which is easy for troubleshooting.
Optional PIKE II 3×08 Series SAS 12Gb/s solution
ASUS PIKE II 3×08 series is the latest 12Gb/s SAS and PCI-E 3.0 high reliability enterprise storage solution. It meets users’ needs with support 12Gb/s SAS storage and various RAID levels data protection. Just placing the PIKE II card, P10S Series can immediately enlarge the capacity and improve the performance, making it the great upgrade option.
