ASUS unveils their Z270-WS Workstation motherboard

 
ASUS has unveiled their new Z270-WS Workstation motherboard, which uses a bridge chip to support additional PCIe 3.0 lanes and offer greater support for multi-GPU systems. 
 
This new motherboard will support a total of 4 PCIe 16x lanes, three of which operate on a single LX bridge chip to offer either dual PCIe 3.0 16x lanes, or a single PCIe 3.0 16x slot and two PCIe 8x lanes (x16/NC/x16 or x16/x8/x8). The fourth PCIe 16x slot operates with an electrical PCIe 3.0 x4  connection to the PCH. 
 
The ASUS Z270-WS uses a 12-phase CPU VRM power delivery system, with four wired DDR4 DIMM slots and supports up to 3866MHz memory. This motherboard also supports dual M.2 storage devices and a U.2 connection, allowing this motherboard to support a wide range of NVMe storage technologies, including Intel's upcoming 3D X-Point SSDs.

Right now ASUS has not revealed the pricing of this motherboard, though it is expected to be high given this motherboard's use of a PEX8747 PCI-Express 3.0 x48 PLX bridge chip.

Looks great although IMO the only thing missing is a nice clean looking IO cover to make it appear more clean.Quote

Don't the professional types usually stick to the HEDT stuff though? I'm assuming there's a market for this, since Asus isn't stupid and they actually made the thing, but I thought the serious workstation guys went for Xeons / quad channel ram / etc?Quote

You can still get xeons on the "Z" platform albeit max of 4 cores and quad channel memory from my own testing has very very little performance benefit over dual channel .Quote
