We already didn’t have a shortage of options for the X299 platform but an addition from ASUS is definitely, worth a try. ASUS has been working hard for particularly this platform and they have come up with three new Intel X299 WS boards. As they are from Work Station category so definitely, it means that they are made to deliver maximum performance for complex workloads.
WS X299 SAGE
Coming first on the list, WS X299 SAGE is built to support maximum GPU density with seven full-sized expansion slots. The aggressive part is that it has the capacity of supporting up to four double-width cards. Also, you can adjust four-way GPU configurations so that more and more hardware can be adjusted. Built on the E-ATX form factor, this chipset is for bigger sized PCs.
WS X299 PRO
Second on the list is the WS X299 PRO which comes in the ATX form factor to suit your mid-sized PC case. The WS X299 PRO comes with four full-sized PCIe 16x slots and support for three-way GPU configurations.
WS X299 PRO/SE
Last, but not the least, WS X299 PRO/SE is a ripper too! Rather it’s even better than PRO as it comes with extensive remote management capabilities. The in-band communication via the ASUS Control Center allows the board to receive keyboard and mouse input remotely. This feature makes the WS X299 PRO/SE unique in all the three boards.
The common features of all three boards are:
- Two M.2 slots
- Intel 1210-AT x2 Gigabit Ethernet
- Aura Sync RGB lighting
The price isn’t revealed but the mobo will soon be available worldwide!
