The Asus WS X299 Pro SE comes with the inclusion of a remote management chip ASUS ASMB9-iKVM IPMI 2.0 that does not cease to be physically an ASPE2500 ASPEED with some modifications by Asus at the firmware level to optimize its features. This chip provides remote management functions such as iKVM, BIOS updates. Also, there is BSOD screenshots, video recording and data erasure among many others.

Also, this motherboard is identical to the Asus WS X299 Pro. So, it is to be expected that its wreck is something superior for the inclusion of this peculiar chip.
