If you are a power user looking to get a personal workstation, you'll probably know how difficult it can be to buy one off the shelf.

Even though most brands do have workstations, they are typically not sold through your regular retail channels. Most are only available through a B2B acquisition process.

However, ASUS is changing that with its latest ESC500 G4 SFF and ESC700 personal workstations, which can be purchased through selected retail channels.

The ESC500 G4 SFF is a small form-factor personal workstation that has been designed to take up minimal desk space. 

Users can equip it with a range of Intel processors, from Pentium, Celeron, and Core, up to Xeon processors.

It uses the Intel C236 chipset and can be equipped with a maximum of 64GB of ECC UDIMM DDR4 memory.

In terms of storage, users have seven SATA 6Gbps slots and a single M.2 PCIe slot to play with, though the case itself only has two 3.5/2.5-inch drive bays.

For users who need a lot more computing power, there's the larger ESC700. 

The ESC700 uses Intel's X99 chipset and can be equipped with a LGA-2011 Intel Core i7 processor or Intel Xeon processor.

Maximum memory capacity is 128GB of ECC DDR4 . Storage options come in the form of eight SATA Gbps, a single SATA Express port, and a M.2 connector. That said, the casing itself only has three internal 3.5-inch drive bays and a single 2.5-inch SSD drive bay.

The ESC700 also features five PCIe 3.0 slots, and supports up to 4-way multi-GPU configurations, making it great for power-hungry users who want the maximum in GPU compute performance.
