The ARES-WHI0 industrial ATX server board delivers the power and technology of the 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors (formerly Ice Lake-SP). The 3rd Generation Xeon SP delivers high-end performance and support for vital data integrity and security technologies including Intel® Deep Learning Boost technology for greater inference acceleration and more efficient processing for AI server applications. The ARES-WHI0 leverages the Whitley platform to deliver performance and support for a wide range of deployments from server board, AI computing, and industrial control applications.

The ARES-WHI0 delivers expandability with three PCI Express 4.0 [x16] slots and one PCIe 3.0 [x8] (in [x16] form factor), allowing the board to power up to four GPUs. This enables the ARES-WHI0 to power performance demanding applications from AI Edge server to AI-based visual inspection.

Additionally, the ARES-WHI0 offers three PCIe 3.0 [x4] slots ([x8] form factor), perfect for frame grabbers, AI accelerators or adding on various functions to meet the needs of individual applications. The board can integrate easily into various deployments with I/O features including DIO, COM, Audio Jack, and VGA ports. Additionally, AAEON brings leading service and support to ensure the ARES-WHI0 delivers consistent, reliable and long-lasting performance, all at a price point to meet any budget.

The ARES-WHI0 delivers support for greater storage capability, with eight SATA III (6.0 Gbps) ports, with RAID support, as well as NVMe. The board also features support for the latest Intel® Optane™ Persistent Memory 200 Series Modules, allowing greater flexibility and storage speeds in data server applications.
