Four Dual-slot GPUs Support

ASUS RS720-E10 servers feature a powerful GPU architecture that supports up to four dual-slot GPUs such as NVIDIA A100 in one 2U system to enable easy scale-up in order to meet the demands of AI and high-performance computing (HPC), and to securely run workloads in virtualized environments.

ASUS RS720-E10 series are Xilinx Alveo-qualified servers to provide optimized acceleration for workloads across cloud and on-premises data centers, and for hybrid cloud environments in financial computing, machine learning, computational storage, and data search and analytics.

CPU-balanced Architecture

The new 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors excel at providing full features and functionality for both dual-socket and single-socket platforms, but our new servers ASUS is introducing an CPU-balanced architecture to enable secure and optimal CPU-performance efficiency.

CPU-balanced architecture CPU-balanced architecture

This architecture extends the full bandwidth to either dual- or single-CPU configurations, enabling more computing capability and much-improved overall power efficiency for compute-intensive workloads. This architecture allows customers to take full advantage of bandwidth capabilities of the dual-CPU architecture with a single CPU, while offering the flexibility to upgrade later with the addition of a second CPU.

* Features, specification and design vary by models and configuration.

Modular design

ASUS RS720-E10 servers offer a flexible, modular design to enable easy scale-up of configurations to meet increasing data-center workloads.

Customizable Ports
Switchable Design

1One PCIe slot in rear panel is replaceable with an OCP 3.0 module for extended network bandwidth.

2The onboard LAN module design allows the default rear-panel LAN port to be replaced with either up to four 1 Gb or two 10 Gb LAN ports, enabling large-scale networking bandwidth for enterprise or data centers.

3Two PCIe slots in rear panel are replaceable with 2.5" NVMe HDD module for extended storage demand.

The system-switchable design enables PCI Express® (PCIe®) lanes to be direction to M.2, PCIe 4.0 slots or NVMe drives as required, maximizing performance and capabilities.

Scalable Storage Solution

ASUS RS720-E10 servers feature scalable storage solutions to support maximum performance for data center flexibility, and enable industry-standard SAS/SATA/NVMe interfacing through Broadcom Tri-Mode RAID adapters for increased connectivity and security. Up to 24 all-flash NVMe drives on front panel enable extensive storage and high-throughput performance.

RS720-E10 servers offer four combinations of storage drive bays for different workloads:

RS720-E10-RS24U storage combination

12 NVMe + 12 NVMe/SATA or
12 NVMe + 12 SATA

(Model: RS720-E10-RS24U)
RS720-E10-RS24E storage combination


(Model: RS720-E10-RS24E)
RS720-E10-RS12 storage combination


(Model: RS720-E10-RS12)
(Two optional 2.5” NVMe in rear panel)
RS720-E10-RS12E storage combination


(Model: RS720-E10-RS12E)
(Two optional 2.5” NVMe/SATA in rear panel)

* This configuration is required to be with PIKE cards.
* The optional configuration of supporting up to 8 SATA/SAS with a PIKE card are available for RS24U/RS12 models.

Enhanced Security

ASUS RS720-E10 servers integrate PFR FPGA as the platform Root-of-Trust solution for firmware resiliency to prevent from hackers from gaining access to infrastructure. ASUS security solutions are fully compliant with the 2018 National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) SP 800 193 specification.

In addition, all RS720-E10 servers also include support Trusted Platform Module 2.0 (TPM 2.0) to secure hardware through integrated cryptographic keys and offer regular firmware update for vulnerabilities.

* Platform Firmware Resilience (PFR) module must be specified at time of purchase and is factory-fitted. It is not for sale separately.

Enhanced security
OCP 3.0

ASUS RS720-E10 servers feature the latest OCP NIC 3.0 card with PCIe 4.0 bandwidth for a faster time-to-market network solution, delivering the speeds of up to 200 Gbps for high bandwidth and low latency. It also features a tool-less, hot-swappable design to simplify installation and serviceability.
