Independent software vendor (ISV) certification
Independent software vendor (ISV) software is becoming an important factor to users in variety of industries. ASUS works in close partnership with ISV vendors, such as Adobe and Autodesk, to test and verify compatibility. This ensures ASUS workstations are reliable and highly effective for users in different fields.
Accelerated data-transfer speeds of up to 32Gbps with M.2
With PCIe 3.0 x4 bandwidth, one M.2 supports up to 32Gbps data-transfer speeds with native NVMe — that’s up to 5.3X faster than traditional SSDs.
Dual Intel Gigabit LAN with teaming support
For more reliable networking, E500 G5 SFF features Intel Gigabit LAN, ensuring lower CPU utilization and temperatures, outstanding performance and better support for diverse operating systems. The dual Ethernet ports support teaming, which combines the network links to provide higher throughput or redundancy in case of port failure.
