Asus ExpertCenter D7 series
Durability and sustainability are the key concepts Asus wants to highlight with the ExpertCenter D7 series. Essentially, this is a desktop PC that is available in three compact chassis sizes, ranging between 9L and 27L, allowing you to customise the hardware on-board. Moreover, the machine’s military grade MIL-STD-810G certification protects it from the inevitable shocks and bumps at your workplace.
Inside, the ExpertCenter D7 series can be equipped with the highest-end power. For example, you can combine 12th Gen Intel Core i7 desktop processors with up to 128GB of DDR4 memory for effective performance during 3D design and gaming. There is also a further provision to support the powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card with 12GB of DDR6 VRAM, if content creation or high graphics power is a must for you. This kind of customisation is thanks to Asus’ tailor-made motherboards, which are also tested for the highest standards and the multi-channel cooling system built into the device to keep the CPU, GPU and power supply in optimal condition.
In the business world, it is important that devices like these are equipped with the best-in-class connectivity and security. Asus’ ExpertCenter D7 series does not disappoint in that aspect.
