ASRock Launches W790 WS Motherboards

Published by


ASRock is thrilled to introduce its latest ASRock W790 WS motherboard for workstations, designed for Intel Xeon W-3400/W-2400 series processors (LGA4677).

With a cutting-edge 14-layer PCB and 20+2 phase CPU VRM, this flagship-class motherboard ensures superior performance and reliability, even under the most demanding sustained workloads. The W790 WS chipset has been optimized to support the latest 4th generation Xeon processors, with compatibility for W-3400 series processors with up to 56 cores. The quad-channel DDR5 design with 2DPC over 8 DIMM slots maximizes memory performance and capacity, and supports ECC RDIMMs to guarantee data reliability.

In terms of storage and performance, the ASRock W790 WS boasts four PCI-Express 5.0 x16 slots and one 4.0 x16 slot, along with four blazing-fast 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 an array of storage options that push the limits of performance. The motherboard is also compatible with the ASRock Blazing Quad M.2 SSD PCI-Express x16 add-in card, which supports an additional 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.

Ultimate Workstation Connectivity
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.
