ASUS K8N-LR — Affordable Serverboard with Stellar PC Performance
Stockholm, Sweden; February 23, 2006 – ASUSTeK Computer Inc (ASUS), a leading provider of performance and quality server solutions, today launched the K8N-LR serverboard based on AMD platform with dual core technology. With slim size of 12’’ x 9.6’’, the board provides leading-edge performance and space-saving solution for SMB customers.
The K8N-LR can support AMD OpteronTM 100 series (up to 2.8GHz) or AMD AthlonTM processor (up to 2.4GHz), nVIDIA CK8-04 SLI chipsest and 64-bit OS, providing faster processing speed and seamless upgrades while supporting IDE and SATA standards.
Featured with high expandability, the K8N-LR supports 1 x PCI-E (x16), 2 x 64bit/133 MHz PCI-X, 2 x 32bit/33MHz PCI slots and 1 dedicated Mini PCI socket for ASUS ASMB2 card. Users are able to enjoy not only the latest PCI-E I/O transfer rate, but also current mainstream PCI-X and PCI interfaces for cost-effective application. In addition, with optional ASUS ASMB2 card, MIS can monitor hardware working status in real-time and reset system remotely.
As a fundamental requirement of servers, stability is exhibited with high marks on the K8N-LR. Optimized layout provides better thermal solution under industry standard temperature; DIMM slots and power ports are located on border to provide smooth airflow in the chassis; and DIMM slots are paralleled to airflow and close to CPU, so that memory can be cooled by leveraging CPU fan. In short, ASUS engineers have taken full thermal solution into consideration, and the K8N-LR is not only suitable under AMD solution, but also under the thermal-critical Intel solution!
After-sales service is particularly important to DIY server maintenance. Users of the K8N-LR are ensured with 1-year guarantee, ARS (Advanced RMA Service), and toll-free calls in certain regions. The outstanding price to performance ratio for the K8N-LR makes it truly an ideal choice among competitors for SMB users!
