Product Description:

Asus Z97-WS Intel Z97 Socket 1150 Workstation ATX Motherboard

Quad-strength Graphic Power with optimized power efficiency
Quad Strength Graphic Power 4-Way NVidia Geforce SLI and AMD CrossFireX on demand
Supreme Power Solution Premium components deliver industry-leading power efficiency
5-Way Optimization by Dual Intelligent Processors 5 One click, total system optimization!
New UEFI BIOS BIOS innovation continues
SATA Express & M.2 Support Speed up your system up to 10Gb/s!
Upgrade flexibility to ultimate-speed 10Gbit/s with ASUS USB 3.1 Card


Built for Graphic Professionals:
The Intel Z97 chipset-based workstation motherboard features on-demand NVIDIA GeForce SLI and AMD CrossFireX technology, plus hassle-free troubleshooting features for minimized downtime.
Four PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots enable extreme graphics power:
The Z97-WS can carry up to four dual-slot graphics. It supports 4-Way NVIDIA Geforce SLI and AMD CrossFireX, making it an excellent choice for graphics professionals who depend on powerful graphics in areas such as design and modeling, medical research, plus processing-intensive simulation and rendering applications. In addition to graphics cards, extensive Z97 WS expandability offers ample room for RAID cards, PCI Express-based solid state storage drives, video capture cards, and other components.

Supreme Power Solutions:
ASUS Z97-WS couples innovative thinking with premium components to deliver industry-leading power efficiency. Carefully engineered with Beat Thermal Chokes made of highly conductive and efficient gold-treated coating for minimal-loss power delivery and integrated Dr.MOS MOSFET that both saves space and reduces operating temperatures. For the latest workstation motherboard, ASUS introduce the industry's most durable 12K solid capacitors, and exclusive ASUS ProCool power connectors. Z97-WS is built to stay cool under pressure and boosts performance, power efficiency and product longevity into extreme levels!

12K hour caps - Capacitors with World's Best Longevity:
ASUS is the world's first motherboard manufacturer to introduce 12K solid capacitors, and Z97-WS is of course equipped. These Japanese-made capacitors are the most durable in the industry, able endure up to 12,000 hours' exposure to temperatures as high at 105C. This is far higher than the temperatures generated by everyday computing, so Z97-WS is built for endurance . Our 12k capacitors also boast lowered equivalent series resistance (ESR) for increased efficiency and minimized heat generation improving overall performance!

Q-Code Logger one-touch troubleshooter:
Q-code logger is your one-touch troubleshooter that lets users easily check system status at any time. Plug a flash drive into adjacent USB port, press the motherboard's dedicated Q-Code logger button and all ASUS Q-Code event logs for the current live session will be copied to the drive even with the system off.

ASUS Dr. Power hassle-free power supply health monitoring:
As the Z97-WS is meant for professional users who rely on non-stop operation, stable power delivery is critical. 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.
