ASUS announces Intel Mehlow workstation products

ASUS has announced new workstation products built on the latest Intel Mehlow platform, including the WS C246 PRO and WS C246M PRO motherboards, and the E500 G5 and E500 G5 SFF workstations.

The Intel Mehlow platform offers up to a 50% performance improvement on multi-threaded workloads, enhancing overall system performance compared to the previous platform, according to ASUS.

The Intel Mehlow platform also includes support for the latest Intel Xeon E processors, which allows for 4K UHD video rendering.

The WS C246 PRO workstation motherboard features four PCIe 3.0 x16 slots to support professional graphics cards and add-on cards, such as RAID controller and LAN cards. Featuring dual M.2 slots, WS C246 PRO supports up to 32Gbps performance and data redundancy. It also supports up to three independent displays and comes with dual Intel LAN ports.

The Micro-ATX WS C246M PRO workstation motherboard gives users powerful workstation performance in a smaller form factor, according to ASUS. It is rack-optimised to maximise cooling efficiency. The WS C246M PRO also features a single M.2 slot, which supports up to 32Gbps data-transfer speeds with native NVMe.

The ASUS E500 G5 and E500 G5 SFF workstations come in two sizes — tower and small-form-factor. Both workstations are built upon the Intel Mehlow platform and feature Intel Xeon E2100 series processors.

The E500 G5 and E500 G5 SFF support multiple graphics cards including NVIDIA Quadro and AMD Radeon Pro and have independent software vendor certification to ensure compatibility with software from a wide range of companies, such as Adobe, Autodesk, and SolidWorks.

The new Intel Mehlow platform workstation product series come with ASUS Control Centre, a centralised and integrated IT management platform that enables asset and security management, remote BIOS updates, monitoring of multiple systems via mobile devices, and one-click software updates and dispatching, allowing easier management for any IT infrastructure.

The WS C246 PRO and WS C246M PRO will be available soon. The E500 G5 SFF will be available for project based only.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
