ASUS confirms that their W790 PRO motherboards will support ECC DDR5-6800 memory speeds
ASUS’ new W790 workstation motherboards support incredible DDR5 speeds with ECC R-DIMMs
Intel has launched their new “Sapphire Rapids” Xeon processors, offering users up to 56 total CPU cores alongside support for DDR5 ECC R-DIMM memory modules, and PCIe 5.0 devices. To support these new processors, ASUS has released their newÂ SUS Pro WS W790E-SAGE-SE andÂ ASUS Pro WS W790-ACE, both of which support DDR5 memory speeds of up to 6800MT/s.Â
ASUS has worked with memory partners includingÂ G.SKILL, Kingston, and V-Color to validate support for both 8-channel and 4-channel DDR5 memory kits with memory speeds of up to DDR5-6800 with EEC DDR5 R-DIMM modules.
With their new Qualified Vendor Lists (QVLs) for their latest motherboards, ASUS has verified that their new Pro WS W790E-SAGE SE now supports up to 128 GB (8×16 GB) at 6800 MT/s, and that their Pro WS W790-ACE supports up to 64 GB (4×16 GB) of DDR5 RAM at 6800 MT/s. Crazy-fast memory configurations for Intel’s latest workstation-grade processors.
Â Â ASUS today announced that ASUS W790 workstation motherboards support ECC R-DIMM DDR5 RAM at up to 6800 MHz, unleashing class-leading overclocking capability to unlock even more performance potential. ASUS W790 workstation motherboards feature the memory capability of up to 2 TB RDIMM DDR5 memory to power the next generation of compute-intensive professional workloads. In addition, ASUS have been working with market-leading memory partners including G.SKILL, Kingston, and V-Color to establish multiple memory validations and to widely support 8-channel and quad-channel memory architectures. The Pro WS W790E-SAGE SE now supports up to 128 GB (8×16 GB) at 6800 MT/s, and the Pro WS W790-ACE supports up to 64 GB (4×16 GB) of DDR5 RAM at 6800 MT/s. This painstakingly cultivated collection of device validations helps ensure that an ASUS W790 workstation build supports a wide variety of scenarios.
Choosing the right CPU cooler for a workstation build can also be a challenge, because CPU sockets and form factors are different from those used in desktops. Therefore, ASUS has partnered with cooling experts including Enermax, EK and Noctua to offer air and liquid coolers for the LGA4677 socket used by the latest Intel Xeon workstation processors. These solutions are designed to offer optimal heat transfer and heat dissipation capacity through the cooler base and then to coolant tubes, heat pipes and radiator fins.

Intel’s Sapphire Rapids processors are the company’s fastest workstation-grade CPUs to date, and to blast though the heaviest of workloads, these CPUs require the backing of a strong set of DDR5 memory modules. Fast memory speeds and a large number of memory channels ensure that these large CPUs have access to the bandwidth that they need to complete the heaviest of workloads, and that memory access times are minimised to ensure that your CPU spends less time waiting for data and more time number crunching. The fact that these new workstation-grade DDR5-6800 R-DIMM modules also support on-die and in-line EEC also ensures that these memory modules maintain high speeds while delivering accurate data.Â Â
