ASUS has a very strong lineup of motherboards ranging from entry-level, consumer class motherboards, to server and workstation class boards. The line between enthusiast and workstation motherboards is currently blurred. Many workstation features are now present on enthusiast class products, but workstation class products still endure validation from more strenuous testing.

Often, workstation products receive chipsets derived from server products, so overclocking options are limited. The chipsets give a solid foundation for increased stability. Heavy-duty applications can take days to complete a task with 100% CPU load, so increased stability takes precedence over higher clock speeds.

The demand for high quality workstation boards that will find uses in many different environments (such as in the office, design studios, small business) is very high. Stability is a primary deciding point, because these systems will be up and running for long stretches of time.

Keeping up to date with CPU's has many benefits, such as lower power use, and less noise in the office environment. The ASUS P9D WS can handle the latest Intel 4th gen CPU's, which perform very well with low power and noise requirements.

The ASUS P9D WS motherboard handles all of these requirements, so let us take a closer look at this workstation motherboard from ASUS.
