Four Dual-slot GPUs Support

ASUS RS720A-E11 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 AMD EPYC 7003-based 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.

* FPGA Xilinx verification is available on request.
** Please select GPU SKU for GPU support.

CPU-balanced Architecture

The new AMD EPYC 7003 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 RS720A-E11 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/SATA 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 RS720A-E11 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.

RS720A-E11 servers offer four combinations of storage drive bays for different workloads:


24 NVMe: 16 NVMe +

12 NVMe: 12 NVMe +

(Model: RS720A-E11-RS24U)


(Model: RS720A-E11-RS24E)

4 NVMe + 4 NVMe/SATA/SAS*+

(Two optional 2.5” NVMe in rear panel)


(Model: RS720A-E11-RS12E)
(Two optional 2.5” NVMe in rear panel)

* This configuration is required to be with PIKE/RAID cards.

Enhanced Security

ASUS RS720A-E11 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 RS720A-E11 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.
