This evolution of innovative, industry-leading ASUS technology provides the best in class control for better efficiency, stability and performance. 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 voltage imprecision, and provides more a stable CPU and memory setup. With programmable digital controllers onboard, users can adjust CPU and DRAM voltage and VRM switching frequencies for various overclocking scenarios. New DRAM tuning possibilities make the most of DDR3 memory for better performance with VCCSA load line calibration and 30% more DRAM current capacity. Dual digital voltage controllers provide two separate outputs for AB and CD memory channels respectively. Thanks to a slew of power options teamed with an extensive and intuitive UEFI BIOS, overclocking very large memory setups is no more difficult than mainstream motherboards.
|Best performance for 4-Way SLI and quad CrossFireX
The Best Graphics Performance You've Ever Experienced. Based on extensive benchmarking, the 4-Way SLI offered by the P9X79 WS works up to 30% faster than standard 3-way SLI and up to 100% faster compared to 2-way SLI, giving professional and power users more graphics performance on demand. Using PCI Express 3.0 x16 links, the four GPUs can reach their full potential, perfect for both intense gaming and commercial uses such as mechanical and architectural design, interior design, aeronautics, plus audio and video production.
|Built-in Dual Intel Server-Class Gigabit LAN
Dual Intel hardware-accelerated LAN. For more reliable networking, the P9X79 WS features built-in dual Intel Gigabit LAN. This leads to lower 71% CPU utilization , increasing throughput to achieve outstanding performance as well as better support for diverse operating systems.
Instant O.C Status Checking with 3-color LED. At a glance workstation overclocking status with easy to understand color coding. Red means overclocked, blue means normal, while green denotes power saving mode. This is an essential and convenient tool to let users know more about overclocking conditions without entering the BIOS.
Server-level Compatibility with RAID card and Lan card. The P9X79 WS provides complete compatibility with RAID and LAN cards.Users enjoy a wider selection of devices and higher reliability. As a workstation motherboard that puts an emphasis on system integration, the P9X79 WS offers the benefit of greater confidence and convenience.
|Quad-Channel DDR3 2400(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/1866/1600/1333/1066 MHz
This Motherboard supports quad channel DDR3 memory that features data transfer rates of 2400(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/1866/1600/1333/1066 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest 3D graphics, multimedia and Internet applications. The dual-channel DDR3 architecture enlarges the bandwidth of your system memory to boost system performance.
|USB BIOS Flashback
USB BIOS Flashback offers the most convenient way to flash the BIOS ever! It allows overclockers to try new 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!
|USB 3.0 Boost
New 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.
