ASUS Announces New World Records for Fastest 2P and 1P Server Performance
ASUS today announced that its 2P (2-socket) servers now hold 129 top-performance benchmark world records for computing-intensive performance as recognised by the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation (SPEC). ASUS 1P (single-socket) servers powered by the latest IntelÂ® XeonÂ® E platform also earned 8 world records, marking the first time ever they have achieved a No.1 performance ranking. These top-performance achievements for ASUS 2P and 1P servers undeniably demonstrate the companyâ€™s R&D capabilities, product innovation and the ability to fulfil the requirements of different applications.
New 1P server performance world records
Intel recently launched the IntelÂ® XeonÂ® E platform, which delivers an up to 1.36X overall performance improvement compared to previous-generation processors and is suited for entry-level servers, secure cloud services and workstation solutions. ASUS RS300-E10, a 1U server with flexible storage and expansion options powered by the Intel Xeon E platform and designed for small-and-medium businesses for applications including firewalls, gateways or business servers, earned nine top-performance benchmark world records.
The worldâ€™s fastest computing performance 2P servers
ASUS achieved its world-record computing performance results with the RS720-E9 rack server and TS700-E9 tower server based on the IntelÂ® XeonÂ® Platinum 8180 processor. RS720-E9 gained four 2P world records for compute-intensive applications with the SPEC CPUÂ® 2017 benchmark, including SPECint 2017 rate and SPECfp 2017 rate. Additionally, TS700-E9 holds four 2P world records for compute-intensive applications with the SPEC CPU2017 benchmark, including SPECfp 2017 and SPECfp 2017.
ASUS 2P servers have achieved 129 performance-benchmark records as of January 31, 2019. The latest lineup of record-breaking, configurable servers includes tower servers, rack servers and multi-node platforms, designed to be highly scalable and work seamlessly for infrastructure visualization, data analysis, and general and technical computing applications.
