The ASUS P9D WS motherboard comes with the new Intel® C226 chipset and support for Intel® Xeon® E3-1200 v3 and 4th generation Core™ processors. Fully ISV (Independent Software Vendor) certified, the P9D WS has been designed for workstation and high-end desktop usage, with wider memory compatibility. It features the ASUS Dr. Power utility, which monitors power supply health to prevent sudden shutdowns, and extensive I/O including diverse display ports.
Versatile workstation use with wider memory compatibility
The P9D WS has been fully Independent Software Vendor certified by major software providers such as Autodesk®, covering popular workstation applications AutoCAD® and Inventor® among many others. These certifications guarantee a motherboard that makes the most of supported software in terms of performance and stability. The P9D WS works with standard DDR3 non-error correcting (non-ECC) unbuffered memory, and server-grade error-correcting (ECC) unbuffered memory, which is more stable and reliable.

ASUS Dr. Power offers easy system health monitoring

Real time power supply health detection helps prevent sudden system shutdown and provides hassle-free notifications should power delivery be insufficient. Additionally, LED messages on the board clearly indicate any relevant power issues in the event your system fails to boot, saving customers time and difficulty as diagnosing problems becomes much faster and does not require checking the entire system.

Multiple displays and an extensive input/output range
The P9D WS ships with HDMI, Display Port, and DVI-I, supporting three-screen multitasking with no graphics card required. Twin Intel® Ethernet ports with the Intel® i210 controller improve networking performance, lowering latency and potentially doubling available bandwidth. The P9D WS also offers USB 3.0 and six SATA 6Gbit/s ports.
