ASUS Workstation boards have gained a lot of traction over the years with the enthusiast community, thanks to ASUS' penchant for finding a way to deliver motherboards that support multiple graphics cards in three and four way configurations on top of the exclusive feature set. In this case you get up to four way Gen 3 PCIe graphics support for both SLI and CrossfireX configurations. This will prove quite useful for the content creation professional as well as the hardcore gamer that is looking for a feature set that differs from the ROG based boards like the Maximus V series. The WS series are built with server class reliability for the business user. Features such as Dual Intel based Server-Class Gigibit LAN that drastically reduces the CPU overhead required, business class integration with RAID and plug-in LAN cards, and ASUS TPU with SMART DIGI+ for unparalleled control of the power envelope and CPU clock speeds. Along with the business class implementations you get the rest of the feature set in the P8Z77 product stack including SSD caching, USB BIOS flashback, USB 3.0 Boost, Fan Xpert 2 and a world class UEFI BIOS implementation.
ASUS has hit the Z77 playing field with amazing force and their P8Z77 WS looks to be an utterly amazing and very capable offering. 4 Way SLI server grade stability and features add up to one hell of an amazing looking board on paper. Can it perform as well as its specs claim? ASUS makes it their business to ensure they cover every possible niche or user group type. This is evidenced by the sheer number of boards available. Many of them are only different by one minor feature, but that difference is legitimate to many users; for example, not every user will want Wi-Fi, so some models have Wi-Fi bundled while some do not. This wide range of products is actually a good thing, as it allows users to buy what they want without paying for a bunch of features they don't need. However ASUS also has specific segment level boards which are really focused in on a specific user group, such as the ROG series, which covers the extreme enthusiasts and gamers very well. Another big market segment is the workstation niche, which requires a board with optimum capability, but also stability. These products are meant for use in servers and graphics rendering stations.
