ASUS has released the ASUS P5E64 WS Professional workstation motherboard, with multiple-display function, duo PCIe 2.0 slots, and a host of practical solutions for efficient work.
The P5E64 WS Professional is able to support 4 PCIe x16 slots; which allows users to display a maximum of 8 monitor displays. This is ideal for users who require a large amount of screen and desktop space like CAD/CAM programmers, banking and finance executives and SOHO users.
With support for screen space, users can increase their work efficiency by eliminating the time used while alt-tabbing between programs by easily working on up to 8 different applications in full screen mode at once. With this multi-display capability, users like professional digital painters can process multiple tasks in different monitors for enhanced work efficiency.
Another advantage of the P5E64 WS Professional is the G.P. Diagnosis card. This card helps provide quick and precise system checks, and displays errors on the LED display – helping users pinpoint errors quickly. Connecting on the TPM header, the G.P. Diagnosis card also provides great convenience with the onboard reset and power buttons for easy troubleshooting.
The P5E64 WS Professional is also fully compatible with the ASUS SASsaby Card. Utilizing the SAS technology, users will be able to enjoy a safer, more stable and faster data transfers for storage I/O interfaces than previous SATA interfaces. The SASsaby Card is also fully backwards compatible with SATA interfaces.
The P5E64 WS Professional also supports duo PCIe 2.0 x16 slot for double the bus bandwidth from 2.5 Gb/s to 5.0 Gb/s – allowing tasks to be accomplished in a much shorter time.
The ASUS-developed EPU is the first hardware-based on-demand power saving IC controller. This new generation automatic energy saving chip utilizes a hybrid power technology to digitally monitor and fine-tune the CPU power supply with improved VRM efficiency in heavy or light loadings – automatically providing more power for higher performance and saving up to 58.6% CPU power when the PC is running low intensity applications.
With Q-Connector, users can connect and disconnect chassis front panel cables in one easy step utilizing just one complete module. This adapter eliminates the trouble of plugging in one cable at a time – making connections quick and accurate.
The motherboar supports Intel Core2 / Pentium D / Pentium 4 processors. The system bus runs 1600/1333/1066/800MHz. The P5E64 WS Professional has 4 DIMM slots, max. 8GB, DDR3 1800(O.C.)/1600(O.C.)/1333/1066/800, un-buffered memory, dual channel architecture. It has four PCIe x16, two PCI 2.2 and one PCIe x4 expansion slots.
