ASUS X99-E-10G WS Review
Once upon a time a Workstation motherboard meant one which supported a selection of curious memory options whilst having very little 3D or overclocking performance. They are partly responsible for the majority of high-end motherboards coming with a "Gaming" appellation.
The last ASUS Workstation motherboard we reviewed dispensed with these preconceptions by proving itself as good as many of the other models in the ASUS range. Today we're taking a look at their upgrade X99 WS board, the E-10G. 10G because it comes equipped with two 10GB LAN ports. As anyone who has got a high bandwidth storage solution will know, even 1G LAN ports quickly run out of bandwidth on modern hardware and fibre broadband, and so giving us two supremely high bandwidth options could be just the thing for the enthusiast.
Once you add to this headline feature some USB 3.1 ports, support for the latest Intel 2011-v3 CPUs - including Xeons for those of you who demand CPU flexibility above other concerns - some pretty speedy DDR4 support as well as Quad-GPU if you desire going all out for 3D Mark scores.
