The P10S WS features Intel® Socket 1151 with the C236 chipset specially-designed for workstations. It supported latest API software like DirectX 3D 2015, OGL 4.4, OpenGL ES 3.0 and OpenCL2.1. ISV application testing and certification with integrated graphics cores on E3-1200 v5/v6 processors are perfect for entry-level workstations and software such as Autodesk AutoCAD, Autodesk Maya and Adobe After Effects CC, etc. The P10S WS is your best choice for DIY workstation build that rivals top-tier pre-built workstations.
The quad flexible x16 slots can extend add-on card, such as graphic cards, RAID cards, LAN cards and Profession VGA cards, which is the perfect choice for operating conveniently.
P10S WS is equipped for total display flexibility, with HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI-D and VGA connectivity all built in to the board. With a compatible latest-generation Intel® process, you’ll be able to connect and drive three independent displays simultaneously – great for multitasking, and even better for productivity.
P10S WS dual M.2 sockets provide the flexibility to enable top-flight performance or data redundancy on SATA mode. In performance-maximizing RAID 0 configurations, P10S WS writes up to 40% faster than a single-drive M.2 setup and an astonishing 84% quicker for read operations. Or, for total reassurance, pair your M.2 devices into a RAID 1 configuration for instant data redundancy.
With dual PCI Express 3.0 bandwidth, M.2 support 8Gbit/s data-transfer speeds and up to 22110 NGFF. It is the perfect choice for customers installing various SSD capacities, even if up to 1 TB capacity.
P10S WS has both Type-A and Type-C USB 3.1 connectivity built for data-transfer speeds up to 10Gbit/s – or twice as fast USB3.0. And Type-C is the all-new reversible socket for any-way-up convenience.
