Fujitsu expands its Extended Lifecycle series of semi-industrial mainboards with the addition of the Fujitsu D3598-B ATX model, an ideal choice for performance-hungry applications such as CAD/CAM, video processing and animation software. The new mainboard is designed to deliver optimized performance in workstations and high-end PCs and comes equipped with the Intel C422 chipset (Basin Falls) and powerful Intel® Xeon W processors, designed for LGA2066 sockets with a thermal design power (TDP) value of up to 140 watts.
Mainboard memory of the D3598-B model can be expanded to some 512 gigabytes DDR4-2666-RDIMM-RAM, ensuring that it is easily able to cope with memory-intensive applications, including medical imaging applications. Promising continuous, reliable operation in an extended temperature range between 0° Celsius and 50° Celsius, the mainboard is suitable for setups that can only be cooled to a limited extent or that are exposed to higher ambient temperatures due to specific design or installation requirements.
Outstanding features include extremely low power consumption
The Fujitsu D3598-B mainboard comes with a comprehensive range of high-quality features, including a highly efficient power supply that guarantees extremely low power consumption across all operating modes. The board provides eight serial SATA-III interfaces for hard drives, as well as onboard RAID. Fast M.2 interfaces with PCI Express and NVMe allow connection of 2260 and 2280-type solid state drives (SSDs), and additional SSDs can be integrated via optional Fujitsu M.2 carrier boards.
For connecting peripherals, the new mainboard has USB ports for both USB 2.0 and 3.0, including USB 3.1 Type C. It boasts seven PCI Express slots (Gen 3), with 48 PCIe lanes, allowing users to install multiple graphics cards – ensuring that workstations built with the Fujitsu D3598-B mainboard deliver the performance required for high-end, graphics-intensive applications.
Peter Hoser, Director Sales OEM, Fujitsu says: “The Fujitsu D3598-B is a mainboard for the most demanding applications, providing outstanding performance, excellent quality and a comprehensive feature set as well as minimalized power consumption across all operating modes. Thanks to an extended temperature range of up to 50 degrees Celsius, the new mainboard is also suitable for operation in environments that traditionally prove to be hostile to off-the-shelf computer components.”
Fujitsu mainboards are developed and manufactured in Germany, giving customers in Europe the added advantage of short delivery times and reduced shipment costs in comparison to mainboards sourced out of the Asia-Pacific region.
Pricing and availability
The Fujitsu D3598-B mainboard will be available from the end of October 2017, with a guaranteed minimum three-year availability which can be extended until 2021, if required. Throughout the product’s entire lifecycle, Fujitsu’s strict lifecycle management is designed to prevent revision changes. Any changes required will be communicated early via Engineering Change Notifications (ECN). Fujitsu mainboards are available via distribution partner Impact Display Solutions in North America (www.impactdisplaysolutions.com/).eletter-10-19-2017
