The ASUS KCMA-D8 server motherboard is a feature-rich yet affordable choice for customers, based on cost effective dual AMD Opteron 4100 series processors, featuring an AMD SR5670/SP5100 chipset, dual-channel DDR3 per processor, high power efficiency, making it an ideal foundation for versatile AMD C32 solution. With all above amazing features, ASUS engineer integrates into an ATX form factor.
12" x 10" ATX form factor and 24+8 pin power connector
The ASUS KCMA-D8 serverboard allows users to build a cost-effective and competitive server with wider choice. The serverboard follows standard ATX mounting-hole locations, so users can choose desktop PC ATX chassis which is cost-effective and easily available from market or server chassis which rack and tower chassis can be fitted in cabinet for enterprise usage. Furthermore, the 24+8 pin power connector supports both ATX (for desktop PC use) and SSI (for server use) power supply, with the former reducing total cost, and the latter offering advanced server features.
High power efficiency with 85%+ Vcore efficiency
The KCMA-D8 delivers 85%+ power efficiency, while CPU is under 30%-90% working load. It can reach up to maximum 88% of the power efficiency and then save power bill for users. Hence, the longer you use KCMA-D8, the more expenses you can save. Besides, the solid and long life conductive polymer capacitors in the serverboard ensure longer component life and lower power consumption - creating higher energy efficiency.
Support up-to-date Opteron 4100 processor
KCMA-D8 is based on the latest AMD C32 platform to support 4/6-core AMD Opteron 4100 series processors, which have outstanding performance-per-watt, saving up to 22% power consumption compared to previous AMD Opteron 2400 series processor; while its dual HT3 links (between CPUs) with up to 6.4GT/S interconnect rate per link, 6 MB shared L3 cache, and 8 DDR3 memory delivers better bandwidth performance. The platform is designed for power efficient and cost efficient 2-way server solutions.
Built in Linux RAID 5 solutionIn The Box
For better data protection, the KCMA-D8 has built in Promise ROMB (RAID on Motherboard) to support RAID 0, 1, 10 and RAID5 in both Windows and Linux operating system. The complete, fast and efficient RAID Solution benefit enterprise customers in maximizing SATA storage system performance.
