ASUS X99-E WS Workstation Motherboard Unveiled

  

As more and more X99 motherboards continue to leak from ASUS, first with the X99 Deluxe and the Rampage V Extreme soon after. Now we have one of ASUS's more professionally oriented motherboard with the ASUS X99-E WS Workstation grade Motherboard.

With X99 being an entirely new platform, which will likely set some new performance heights for Intel, there quite a few people who are very likely going to be upgrading their workstations, the ASUS X99-E WS Workstation Motherboard is for this crowd.

In terms of features, you off-coarse expected Haswell-E support, alongside Tonne of PCIe 3.0 slots, which includes support for 4-way CrossFireX or SLI. This board is specifically designed to support both Core i7 and Xeon E5 class chips thanks to being only a single socket workstation board. Because this is a workstation board, ASUS also talks about the boards overall power efficiency focusing on their high quality components like their 12k hour capacitors, ProCool power connector and thermal choke.

The Asus X99-E WS, like the Rampage V Extreme also has a host of connectivity options, including eight SATA 6.0 Gbps ports, 12 if you include the SATA ports on the dual SATA Express ports and plenty of USB 3.0 ports on the rear IO, all of which make it all the more attractive to a work user.

There are also dual Gigabit NICs, not to mention the standard audio connectors, eSATA and the other expected IO ports. You will get the full 8-slot DDR4 configuration.

While this board does not have the Visual Swagger of many of the other ASUS X99 boards, this one is definitely still a looker, just with a more relaxed, or tines down style.

They have ruined it!!!

No PS/2, SHAME ON YOU ASUS!

Only usb3, why not include some usb2 ports on the back, i dont find that alle equipment work with usb3.

And why the hell boost the audio, who needs that on a WS card?

And lastly, no more super sexy brushed heatsink! Quote

I hope someone can help me understand one of the features mentioned, is that the UEFI chip isn't soldered and is a socket removable chip, what does that mean? Does that mean you can pull out the chip that has the UEFI? Why would you need to? Are there any benefits to this?

I hope someone can enlighten me on this thank you.Quote

So that the masochists can change it for a standard BIOS.
But really, I have no idea. I am wondering though what would be the max cost of the best components you could install on this board today.Quote
