ASUS is on the roll of releasing exciting new products and the latest addition the family is WS X299 Pro SE Motherboard. Don’t confuse it with the recently announced WS X299 Pro as both are different but from the same series.
What makes it different from the other members of the ASUS’ motherboard family is the ASUS ASMB9-iKVM IPMI 2.0 compliant remote management chip. Now, this chip is actually an ASPEED AST2500 from its physical appearance, but actually, it’s different. How? The custom firmware and software in it make the difference.
These are the features provided by this remote management chip:
- Remote BIOS update
- BSOD screen capture
- Screen video recording
- Remote data wipe
That’s not all, the secondary VRM heatsink covers the chip next to the expansion slot. This is the best way to release the heat produced while running through the thermal pad.
