Fujitsu D3598-B13 Motherboard Power Consumption
Power consumption can vary a significant amount depending on processors used and the number of HDDs/SSDs/Expansion cards used.
For our tests, we use AIDA64 Stress test which allows us to stress all aspects of the system. The Fujitsu D3598-B13 with Intel Xeon processor W-2123 uses little power, the bulk of the power draw we see is coming from the RTX2060. We were frankly surprised by how little power this system used given the LGA2066 platform.
In our tests we found the Fujitsu D3598-B13 to be a great motherboard that provides extra PCIe slots for expansion options, even NVLink for dual NVIDIA Titan RTX GPU’s. With this class of motherboard, quad channel memory configurations are useful for applications that need faster speeds and expanded capacity. With our testing, we installed 8x 16GB memory sticks which gave us a total of 128GB of memory and the Fujitsu D3598-B13 handled this memory load well.
In the industrial motherboard space, the backing of Fujitsu will mean that this motherboard will appeal to a set of customers that needs the company’s support. If you are looking for a gaming motherboard, this will probably do the job however without the typical flash that today’s consumer products have. That is a good thing as it lowers cost, complexity, and the number of controllers that need to be patched in a system. We can see this motherboard pairing well anywhere from workstations to test lab machines to higher-end control applications. Fujitsu does not add unnecessary flair and has some unique features such as the robust SATA ports to differentiate its product in the market.
