ASUS P8Z77 WS Review And Benchmarks

If you want the absolute best with a no sacrifice attitude then the ASUS P8Z77 WS is just what the doctored ordered and earns a solid Editor’s Choice Product here at the Motherboard HomeWorld! By Elric Phares

As long as their is a need for performance workhorses in the motherboard world ASUS is surely to have a solution to fit your needs, whether it be for a professional in the office place or a home based business. The P8W77 WS (WorkStation) motherboard has a lot of potential in its silicon and it has features that set it apart from the rest of the AUS Z77 stack of channel motherboards that make it in my eyes more of a segment class product, but ASUS has this board slotted for the mainstream user. The video support alone is going to garnish the attention of gamer's who want to use 4-Way SLI or CrossFire configurations as the WS has the additional chipset to power that without fail.

WorkStation class motherboards are geared for the individual who uses his/her PC for many different applications and the Multitasking environment is their home. If you are the type of user who uses Photoshop, Premiere, PowerPoint and a variety of other programs as well as encoding video and audio sources all in the same work sequence you need a board with more. Stability becomes job one in a motherboard of this caliber and that usually means making a sacrifice somewhere in order to get that type feature, but with the ASUS P8Z77WS you get both the stability you need in addition to the features you really want. Today we take a closer look and see what this new WorkStation class motherboard is really all about and why you may want to consider it in your next build. This is truly a nice product that I think you will find of interest regardless of what type of user you are.
