Compact Ryzen Motherboards Pack Two Intel 10GbE LAN Ports

ASRock Rack has launched two motherboards based on AMD’s X570 chipset and designed for the corporate’s Ryzen processors with as much as 16 cores.

Each platforms can be utilized to construct compact NAS, servers or workstations so they’re outfitted with a baseboard administration controller (BMC) in addition to two 10GbE ports powered by a controller from Intel.

ASRock Rack’s X570D4I-2T and X570D4U-2L2T motherboards feature an AM4 socket that helps AMD Ryzen processors with as much as 105 W TDP, 4 memory slots supporting as much as 128 GB of DDR4 SDRAM with or with out ECC, a PCIe 4.0 x16 slot for graphics cards or ultra-fast enterprise-grade SSDs, an OCulink port to assist multiple Serial ATA connections, Intel’s X550 controller that handles two 10 GbE ports, as well as the Aspeed ASP2500 BMC, paired with a devoted GbE port (controlled by the Realtek RTL8211E) for remote management.

Up to 16 cores in SFF PC

The smaller Mini-ITX X570D4I-2T is designed for ultra-compact methods, but it has an OCulink port that may assist as much as eight SATA storage gadgets (so, as much as 144 TB of storage space when 18 TB HDDs are used) in addition to an M.2-2280 slot for PCIe 4.0 x4 or SATA SSDs. 

The bigger micro-ATX X570D4I-2T motherboard helps as much as eight SATA drives natively, can join 4 more SATA storage gadgets utilizing an optional M2-HD controller in addition to two M.2 SSDs that includes a PCIe 4.0 x4 or SATA interface. As well as, the platform carries a PCIe 4.0 x8 slot, a PCIe x1 slot, and two Intel i210-powered GbE ports (in case two 10 GbE connections will not be sufficient).

With assist for up to 12 SATA drives and no less than three high-end SSDs with a PCIe 4.0 interface, the ASrock X570D4I-2T can allow devices with slightly formidable storage capability and excessive efficiency.

ASRock Rack’s X570D4U-2L2T and X570D4I-2T motherboards are listed on the company’s web site, so count on them to hit the market shortly. Given the positioning of the platforms and enterprise-grade 10 GbE ports, count on them to be priced accordingly.
