TAIPEI, Taiwan, February 16, 2023 – Leading global motherboard manufacturer, ASRock, proudly announces its new ASRock W790 WS motherboard for workstations for Intel® Xeon® W-3400/W-2400 series processors (LGA4677). The ASRock W790 WS features up to 2TB DDR5 ECC RDIMM support, PCI-Express 5.0 expansion slots, USB4/ThunderboltTM 4 and Dual 10Gbps Ethernet. A flagship-class 14-layer PCB and 20+2 phase CPU VRM ensures ultimate performance and superb reliability, even when subjected to the most demanding sustained workloads.
The W790 WS chipset is optimized for new Intel® Xeon® W-2400 series (LGA4677) processors and is compatible with W-3400 series processors with up to 56 cores also. The ASRock W790 WS provides a quad-channel DDR5 design with 2DPC over 8 DIMM slots, maximizing memory performance, potential memory pool capacity and supports ECC RDIMMs to ensure data reliability.
The ASRock W790 WS motherboard features four PCI-Express 5.0 x16 slots and one 4.0 x16 slot, four PCI-Express 5.0 x4 ‘Blazing' M.2 NVMe SSD Sockets (up to 128Gbps performance), two USB4 ThunderboltTM 4 Type-C Ports (40Gbps plus PD 3.0 charging) and one U.2 mini SAS (SFF-8643) port, providing ample storage options that hit the very latest performance extremes. The motherboard also supports ASRock Blazing Quad M.2 SSD PCI-Express x16 add in card that supports an addition four PCI-Express 5.0 x4 NVMe SSDs (25110).
ASRock ensures VRM stability for the Intel® Xeon® W-2400 and W-3400 series processors and DDR5 memory in all conditions and systems loads. Its leading VRM design introduces a 20+2 Power Phase with 90A SPS, Nichicon 12K Black Caps and server-grade power chokes built upon an ultra-low loss 14-layer PCB that prevents PCB bending and ensures signal integrity even under sustained extreme performance conditions.
Atop the VRMs sits a large aluminum fin array with three fans for active cooling, plus heatpipe and aluminum alloy heatsink over the rear IO that acts to further spread the heat. Users can also manually adjust the fan-speed curve in the BIOS to suit individual needs.
Network connectivity includes two 10 GbE LAN (Marvell AQC113CS) ensuring file-transfers are superfast to networked or Cloud storage. One Intel® I225LM (2.5 GbE LAN) with vPro provides Intel® Active Management Technology and Intel® Endpoint Management Assistant (Intel® EMA), allowing trusted remote management for enterprise environments. In addition, Wi-Fi 6E with 2x2 antenna for connection reliability provides gigabit-class wireless networking, giving the convenience of high-speed, wire-free connectivity already built in.
