ASUS is proud
to introduce the P5W64 WS Professional workstation-class motherboard, nicknamed
the Wall Street Quartet. It supports the quad-PCI Express architecture, enabling
a system to connect up to eight monitors.
Based on the Intel 975X chipset and supporting the Intel Core2 CPU (and future
multi-core CPUs), the P5W64 WS Professional provides powerful computing and
superior scalability for computing demands of today and tomorrow.
The P5W64 WS Professional offers two PCI slots, two IEEE 1394a ports, eight USB
2.0 ports and eight Serial ATA-II 3Gb/s ports for establishing two sets of RAID.
With superior expandability, the all-new motherboard is ready for the next phase
of personal computing.

ASUS Technology Pte Ltd (ASUS) the worldwide leader of motherboards is proud
to introduce the P5W64 WS Professional workstation-class motherboard, nicknamed
the Wall Street Quartet. It supports the quad-PCI Express architecture, enabling
a system to connect up to eight monitors.

Based on the Intel 975X chipset and supporting the Intel Core2 CPU (and future
multi-core CPUs), the P5W64 WS Professional provides powerful computing and
superior scalability for computing demands of today and tomorrow.

Ideal for Multiple-Displays

Aptly nicknamed the Wall Street Quartet, the P5W64 WS Professional comes
equipped with four PCI Express slots, enabling a system to accommodate up to
eight monitors. The new motherboard is ideal for the finance sector, where
multiple monitors are necessary to watch the market, or professionals in other
fields requiring similar display needs. The PCI Express slots support high-speed
input/output control cards as well, providing excellent flexibility and
compatibility that make the P5W64 WS Professional a unique solution.

Superb Platform for 975X Chipset and Dual-Core Processing

Based on the Intel 975X chipset, the P5W64 WS Professional supports Intel’s most
powerful processors, including the advanced Intel CoreTM2 and future multi-core
CPUs. Together with ATI’s CrossFire multiple-GPU technology and native
dual-channel DDR2 800 support up to 8GB, the P5W64 WS Professional is powerful
enough for any resource-intensive application.

Expandability for future upgrades

The P5W64 WS Professional offers two PCI slots, two IEEE 1394a ports, eight USB
2.0 ports and eight Serial ATA-II 3Gb/s ports for establishing two sets of RAID.
With superior expandability, the all-new motherboard is ready for the next phase
of personal computing.

Noiseless cooling

Stack Cool 2 is a fan-less and -noiseless cooling solution offered exclusively
by ASUS. It effectively transfers heat generated by the critical components to
the other side of the specially designed PCB (printed circuit board) for
effective heat dissipation. The result is a temperature decrease of up to 20
degrees Celsius.

8-Phase Power Design

The 8-Phase Power Design generates less heat than conventional power solutions.
It reduces input ripple current and output ripple voltage, which prevents the
CPU and VRM (voltage regulation modules) from suffering high power stress. It
has the advantages of quick transient response and stability, especially
beneficial when CPU requires more power during heavy loads and overclocking.
