ASUS WS C621E SAGE Test Configuration
Here is our basic test configuration for this motherboard:
- Motherboard: ASUS WS C621E SAGE Motherboard
- CPU: 2x Intel Xeon Gold 6134 (8 core / 16 Threads)
- GPU: ASUS Strix GTX 1080
- Cooling: 2x Dynatron LGA3647 B5 – Active Type
- RAM: 12x MICRON 16GB Low Profile
- SSD: OCZ RD400
- OS: Windows 10 Pro
The Intel Xeon Gold 6134 CPUs are Intel’s frequency optimized parts. You can see our Intel Xeon Gold 6134 server benchmarks and review where we discuss how they excel with licensing models employed by software such as Windows Server 2016.
We are not going to spend a ton of time on the benchmarks, but we wanted to show few numbers to highlight the performance.
AIDA64 Memory Test
Overall, the ASUS WS C621E SAGE performed extremely well. If you are building a high-end workstation using Windows Server 2016 for example, and are using frequency optimized parts, this is a great option to maximize per core performance. There is a bit more room to overclock, normally around 3% that can help these numbers even more.
Next, we are going to look at the power consumption before getting to our final thoughts.
