Motherboard for workstations, Asus X99-E WS is equipped with two 10G Ethernet ports 10 Gbps
The Asus range has expanded motherboard X99-E-WS 10G size CEB (30.5 x 26.7 cm) with the processor socket LGA 2011-v3, designed for workstations. One of the advantages of products on the chipset Intel X99 is the presence of seven expansion slots PCIe 3.0 x16. Of course, the mode of operation depends on the number of installed cards, but four cards work in x16 mode). If you occupy all slots, one slot running at x16, the other in x8 mode.
However, the number of slots and other characteristics the novelty is almost no different from the two issued a year ago of the Asus X99-E WS. The main difference, which, incidentally, reflected in the title, is the presence of two Ethernet ports 10 GB/s. For those who can’t see it in the illustration and too lazy to go for more information on the website of the manufacturer, verify that the ports is designed for connection using twisted pair cabling.
Also added two USB 3.1 (USB-and USB-A), and in the sound subsystem now uses a proprietary Crystal Sound 3, not Crystal Sound 2, however, the codec remains the same — Realtek ALC1150.
