TAIPEI, Taiwan, December 28, 2015 – Intel's Xeon E3-1200 series processors were pretty popular since their performance is somewhat close to Core i7 processors, but cost way much less. However, earlier Intel® has decided to make these new Xeon E3-1200 v5 processors exclusive to Intel® C232 chipset platforms, meaning that it won't work on your average Z170/H170/B150/H110 chipset motherboards. On the bright side, ASRock will release an Intel® C232 chipset based motherboard after Christmas to match the CPU with the best value, Intel's E3-1230 v5. A workstation motherboard ASRock E3V5 WS.
ASRock E3V5 WS is a workstation motherboard that is specifically designed for content creators. It lacks support for Intel's integrated graphics, but supports both ordinary DDR4 memory modules, ECC memory DIMMs, and also AMD FirePro and NVIDIA® Quadro high-end graphics cards instead. Moreover, the onboard Intel® I219LM LAN chip provides server grade internet connections, plus it allows this workstation motherboard to support server operating systems.
