The ASUS Workstation Series is the ideal foundation for a powerful PC. It delivers awesome power, dependable performance and unmatched multiple I/O scalability for the most demanding tasks and future upgrades. The ASUS Workstation Series intelligently reduces operating noise and dissipates heat through advanced and environmentally friendly methods to accommodate user needs.

PCI-E Gen3 x16 links 4-way graphics power
Native PCI-Express 3.0 x16 links 4-way GeForce SLI and CrossFireX offer the fastest and most reliable graphics performance ever. It's ideal for professional use in mechanical, architectural, interior design, aeronautics, audio and video design applications. Additionally, this ample graphics power can easily run even the most demanding PC games in full detail for enhanced entertainment.

Detect, diagnose, and monitor power supply health
LED messages clearly indicate any relevant power issues in the event your system fails to boot. Additionally, power supply health auto-detection helps prevent sudden system shutdown and provides warnings should power delivery be insufficient.

Built-in Dual Intel Server-Class Gigabit LAN
For more reliable networking, the P9X79-E WS features the latest server class built-in dual Intel Gigabit LAN. This leads to lower CPU utilization and temperature, achieving outstanding performance as well as better support for diverse operating systems.

High conductivity for better heat removal efficiency
Copper heatpipes effectively direct heat generated by CPUs and chipsets to heatsinks with improved thermal transfer. The fanless cooling design on the P9X79-E WS lasts longer, ensures 0dB quiet operation, and leads to enhanced reliability.

Ultimate expansion capability with seven PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots
ASUS P9X79-E WS is built in seven PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots to offer Ultimate expansion capability. Users can install up to 4 double deck cards or 7 single cards to meet different needs.

Diverse memory types
The P9X79-E WS supports robust server-grade DDR3 ECC unbuffered memory modules and more mainstream and readily available DDR3 non-ECC unbuffered memory. By supporting different memory types, the P9X79-E WS affords a wide range of workstation builds for every budget and need.

Digital power control for both CPU and DRAM
ASUS X79 motherboards include DIGI+ power control with two digital voltage regulator modules (VRMs), including a DRAM controller that allows ultra-precise memory tuning in addition to CPU voltage control. This evolution of innovative, industry-leading ASUS technology provides super-accurate voltages for better efficiency, stability and performance.

Best in class power efficiency and stability
Two critical components work perfectly together to match digital power signal (SVID) requests from the CPU, with ultra-fast sensing and response to efficiently deliver the right level of power on demand. Accurate power reduces wasteful imprecision, and provides more stable CPU Vcore voltages.

Increased CPU and DRAM overclocking range
With programmable digital controllers onboard, users can adjust CPU and DRAM voltage and switching frequencies for various overclocking scenarios, including VCCSA Load Line Calibration for increased relative voltage range, controllable VCCSA Current Capability, and accurate tuning input through UEFI BIOS. This proprietary design, with its precise yet flexible power adjustments, increases overclocking headroom to push performance to its full potential.

Multiple SSD caching, instant upgraded speed
SSD Caching II has been upgraded with a multiple caching function, adding four extra SATA 6 Gb/s onboard. This feature offers performance upgrades by using multiple installed SSDs with no capacity limitations as a cache for frequently accessed data. It also allows user to choose the combinateion that suits their needs. For example, you can choose three SSDs matched with one HDD or two SSDs with two HDDs. Harness a combination of SSD-like performance and response and hard drive capacity with a single click, without the need to reboot for instant activation and complete ease of use. As an added bonus, it can even prevent data loss with the included backup function, so you can rest easy knowing your data is secure.

Easy, worry-free USB BIOS flashback
USB BIOS Flashback offers the most convenient way to flash the BIOS ever! It allows overclockers to try UEFI BIOS versions easily, without even entering their existing BIOS or operating system. It even works without key components such as the CPU and memory installed. Just plug in any USB storage and push the dedicated button for 3 seconds. The UEFI BIOS is automatically flashed using ATX standby power. Worry-free updating for the ultimate convenience!

Faster USB 3.0 transmission with UASP
ASUS USB 3.0 Boost technology supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol), the latest USB 3.0 standard. With USB 3.0 Boost, USB device transmission speed is significantly increased by up to 170%, adding to already impressively fast USB 3.0 transfer speeds. USB 3.0 Boost provides a user-friendly graphical interface, which instantly accelerates transfer speeds for USB 3.0 peripherals with exclusive ASUS device auto-detect settings.

Customizable speeds with independent fan control
Hardware-level ASUS Fan Xpert+ allows users to independently adjust both CPU and case fan speeds with multiple dedicated controllers based on different ambient temperatures, climate conditions and system loads. Built-in profiles offer flexible automatic and manual fan speed controls to achieve a quiet and cool computing environment.

Full-scale performance tuning with easy BIOS interface
ASUS UEFI BIOS offers the first mouse-controlled graphical BIOS designed with selectable modes, providing a user-friendly interface that goes beyond traditional keyboard-only controls. It also natively supports fully-utilized hard drives larger than 2.2 TB in 64-bit operating systems.

ASUS exclusive interface
EZ mode displays frequently-accessed info. Users can choose system performance settings and drag and drop boot priorities. Advanced mode for performance enthusiasts includes detailed DRAM settings via a dedicated memory info page for complete insight.

Expand your PC audio experience
To get the most out of your audio entertainment across all formats and quality levels, DTS Connect combines two enabling technologies. DTS Neo:PC upmixes stereo sources (CDs, MP3s, WMAs, Internet radio) into as many as 7.1 channels of incredible surround sound. Consumers can then connect their PC to a home theater system. DTS Interactive is capable of performing multi-channel encoding of DTS bitstreams on personal computers, and sending encoded bitstreams out of a digital audio connection (such as S/PDIF or HDMI) designed to deliver audio to an external decoder.

DTS UltraPC II
DTS UltraPC II delivers exceptional 7.1 surround through the most popular PC audio setups - your existing stereo speakers or headphones. In addition to virtual surround, it upgrades original sound to more levels with Audio Restoration, recreating the dynamic range of audio files. Symmetry mode improves the balance of perceived loudness across different input sources and Enhance boosts audio quality through high and low frequency equalization. With these technologies, users experience better home theater audio with ease.
