      Rack-optimized design for better cooling efficiency
      WS C246M PRO is the perfect workstation motherboard for media server, cloud gaming and video streaming applications. Its rack-optimized layout maximizes cooling efficiency for the best performance and stability, ensuring it's ready to meet the demands of enterprise or academia use.


      Powerful performance with Intel® Xeon® E processor and ECC memory
      WS C246M PRO supports Intel® Xeon® E series processors to deliver powerful, optimized performance in always-on usage scenarios. Support for Error-Correcting Code (ECC) memory enables automatic detection and repair of single-bit memory errors, reducing the chance of system crashes and data corruption to ensure reliable and responsive workstation performance.

      Supports up to three independent displays simultaneously

      WS C246M PRO is equipped for total display flexibility with onboard HDMI, DisplayPort and VGA connectivity. With a compatible latest-generation Intel® processor, you can connect up to three independent displays simultaneously for better multitasking and enhanced productivity.
      Accelerated data-transfer speeds of up to 32Gbps with M.2
      With PCIe 3.0 x4 bandwidth, one M.2 supports up to 32Gbps data-transfer speeds with native NVMe — that's up to 5.3X faster than traditional SSDs. WS C246M PRO also supports the very latest 2.5-inch NVMe SSDs for quick and easy setup.

      Onboard USB 3.1 for fast transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps

      WS C246M PRO has two onboard USB 3.1 Gen2 connectors that provide data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps, twice as fast USB3.1 Gen1.
      SafeSlot
      ASUS SafeSlot is the PCIe slot reinvented by ASUS and engineered to provide superior retention and shearing resistance, which protect your graphics card investment. Manufactured in a single step using a new injection-molding process integrates the slot with the fortifying metal for an inherently stronger slot, which is then firmly anchored to the PCB through additional solder points.

      ASUS Control Center

      WS C246M PRO features ASUS Control Center (ACC), a centralized and integrated IT management platform for monitoring and controlling ASUS commercial products, including servers, workstations and digital signage. ACC enables remote BIOS updates, monitoring of multiple systems via mobile devices, and one-click software updates and dispatching, allowing easier server management for any IT infrastructure.
