“ASUS XG-U2008 fanless unmanaged network switch – $249 gets 8 1GbE ports and 2 10GbE ports for my Xeon D two-node cluster”

For watt measurements, you’ll see at left the power the ASUS XG-U2008 is using, in the middle is the Supermicro SuperServer SYS-5028D-TN4T with Xeon D-1541 (8 cores), and at right is the Supermicro SuperServer SYS-E200-8D with Xeon D-1528 (6 cores), see all comparisons and more detailed watt (and sound) measurements at:

Aaron Runkle says:

Badly needs VLAN and LACP capabilities. Still good to have another product out there on the market.

Andy Rhine says:

Just not enough ports or management to be really useful in a homelab. Need at least 3-4 ports to have to compute nodes and storage. Not having management is also a killer.

Kevin Newman says:

How is performance?

philip dias says:

4x 10gbe ports for the price would make sense…

Kice Ou says:

What kind of cable you are using for the RJ45 ports?

Shane Cook says:

But no test of the throughput, only that it connected at 10Gbit. Did I miss something?
