ASUS exhibits high-end P9X79-E WS motherboard

Just in time with the first news on Intel’s Ivy Bridge-E generation the Taiwanese ASUS has revealed its latest X79-based motherboard – the P9X79-E WS.

The new motherboard is fully compatible with all Socket LGA2011 processors and comes with eight DDR3 memory slots for up to 64 GB of DDR3-2400 memory. Another striking feature is the presence of seven PCI-E x16 expansion slots (but no PCI or PCI-E x1 slots) with the blue ones operating at x16 speed while the black ones running at x8 speed.

As expected from such a high-end motherboard the ASUS P9X79-E WS comes fully equipped with solid capacitors. It has powerful 8 + 2 Phase CPU power design and 2 + 2 Phase DRAM power design schemes. Expansion needs are served by six SATA 3.0 ports, four SATA 2.0 ports, four USB 3.0 ports and 13 USB 2.0 ports. The motherboard also comes equipped with an 8-channel Realtek ALC1150 audio solution, dual Gigabit LAN controllers, eSATA, S/PDIF and eight audio jacks.

The release date and the pricing of the ASUS P9X79-E WS are still unknown.
