ASUS Pro WS C621-64L SAGE/10G Motherboard BIOS
The BIOS is relatively standard for ASUS workstation motherboards using the American Megatrends BIOS.
Here we see the Advanced Menu for more detailed BIOS adjustments.
As a quick note, if you compare this to the BIOS we saw with the ASUS ROG Dominus Extreme, another workstation part based on the same socket, the WS C621 has a more server-like experience rather than a consumer/ gamer like experience. Those server features do not stop just at the BIOS.
ASMB9-iKVM Remote Management
The ASMB9-iKVM remote management provides detailed status screens and remote iKVM capabilities. This is a feature that not all LGA3647 workstation motherboards have.
If you want to see the look and feel of this solution, check out our ASUS Server Management Web Tour with ASMB9-iKVM. We also have a video of ASMB9-iKVM here:
ASUS Pro WS C621-64L SAGE/10G Motherboard Software
Drivers and Utilities for the motherboard are found on a DVD.
One item we spotted is that the drivers for Intel 10Gb/s network do not show up on our Driver list. These can be found on the DVD and installed manually.
The downside here is that you need to have a DVD. We like the distribution via USB flash drive better for modern PCs.
Next, we are going to do a quick specification check, and commence with our performance benchmarks.
