The Workstation or server computer is different than a normal computer in several key ways. The workstation computer is used for people that need a powerful, dependable solution that needs high computing power, visual capabilities and support for Workstation class CPUs.

ASUS has made a variety of motherboards on a variety of chipsets and is one of the leading brands of computer motherboards in the world. Based in Taiwan, ASUS does computer motherboards, video cards, and a variety of other products. They have a line of workstation motherboards including the P7P55 WS Supercomputer board I’m reviewing today. It should be interesting as a workstation board with support for both the Xeon and LGA-1156 Core CPUs.
