Fujitsu D3598-B13 Motherboard BIOS

Most of the BIOS functions supplied on the D3598-B13 Motherboard are what we would typically expect to find.

The BIOS is relatively standard; users should have no issues finding what settings they need to adjust. One will notice that the firmware is more akin to what we see in embedded server products and white box servers than what we see in consumer desktops and mainstream servers from top-tier vendors.

As a quick note here, the motherboard does not have remote management functions which we find on a segment of the industrial motherboard market, but there are many segments that do not want this functionality.

Next, we are going to do a quick specification check, and commence with our performance benchmarks.

Fujitsu D3598-B13 Motherboard Specifications

Here is a quick list of the motherboard specs from Fujitsu:

Here we were particularly surprised that Linux support is considered “runnable” but not “tested/ released by Fujitsu.” This suggests that the Fujitsu D3598-B13 is designed for Windows applications.

Let us continue with performance testing.

  1. Are we looking at the same pictures? Where do you see the VGA/DP/HDMI? I see the PS/2 Keyboard/mouse, Red USB, USB C, 2 RJ 45, 6 USB, 3 Audio connectors.

  2. “1x HDMI / 1x DisplayPort / 1x VGA”

    That’s the copy/paste quality we expect from STH. Keep up the work!

  3. What a completely lame product. The only thing that stood out is the SATA ports. Literally the rest is copy paste of every other board. They throw in titles like for industrial use without ever even explaining what the true difference is here. Even STH doesn’t go into detail. Everyone tries to prop these type of products up like there’s something good here. It’s the same junk as always but with Fujitsu branding and “support”. As if bare bones and basic is something hard to find. Yeah I’m sure a SuperMicro board wouldn’t be able to do the exact same job because this is somehow special…..The industry is full kf these type of products and people will defend it, as if there aren’t 10000 others available that do the same job. Are they using sooooo much higher “quality” ICs? Caps? Board layers? Nope. Same stuff but sold to you as a “feature”.

  4. All motherboards have the same basic properties but differ in detail. While most consumer boards have tons of additional features they are designed for a moderate usage with a calculated lifecycle of maybe 2 years. Of course, they often last longer but unlikely when they are fully utilized arround the clock for years.

    Boards like the Fujitsu are more durable for approved environments (24/7 – 100% utilization up to 50°C!) and have a complete support during the lifecycle (and often extended). This also include BIOS/Firmware patches even years after they reached the market.

    So what kind of board you are choosing always depends on your needs.
