Workstation motherboards are made for some pretty intense tasks. With ASUS’s new P9X79-E WS motherboard you sure will be able to do a lot! The thing that really sets this board apart from others is that it has seven PCI Express 3.0 slots. So if you choose you are able to install seven single-slot cards or four dual-slot cards. The large number of PCI Express slots is great for users who have PCI Express-based video capture, RAID, and SSD storage components.
Workstations and business related products are not normally what we cover here at ThinkComputers. We are more consumer and enthusiast based, but our friends at Lenovo asked us if we would take a look at their latest workstation system the ThinkStation S30. We decided why not since we never cover things like this and who knows many some of you reading this review might pick up a few of these for your office. The ThinkStation S30 we are taking a look at today features an Intel Xeon E5-1620 Sandy Bridge processor, NVIDIA Quadro 2000 graphics, 8GB of DDR3-1333 memory, and two Seagate 500GB 7200 RPM drives in a RAID 0 setup. Let’s see what the S30 is all about!
ASUS’s P8P67 line of motherboards is huge, as of writing this review there are currently 10 P8P67 motherboards in the lineup. Today we are going to be checking out the ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution board. The “WS” implies that it is a workstation board but the “Revolution” means this board is not just made for standard workstation use, but in-home use and gaming applications. Because this is a workstation board you get all of the features that you would expect on a workstation board like SATA 6GB/s connectivity, platinum level 92% power efficiency, dual Intel Gigabit LAN, Digi+ VRM digital power design, EFI BIOS and USB 3.0 connectivity. Gamers don’t worry ASUS has you covered with 3-way SLI and quad-CrossFireX capabilities and unlike most boards the PCI-E slots are nicely spaced for those setups. Read on to see what this board is all about.
