ASUS Pro Workstation motherboards are designed for professionals in AI training, deep learning, animation, 3D rendering or media production. Featuring expandable graphics, extensive storage, impressive connectivity and exceptional overall performance and reliability, Pro Workstation motherboards are the ideal solution for creative professionals. Each motherboard includes centralized management software, so they're also an efficient and cost-effective option for IT administrators.
Ultra Powerful Back IO
The motherboard comes with four USB 3.2 Gen 1 type connector, one reversible USB Type-C connector and front-panel connector to support additional USB expansions.
ECC Memory Support
Designed for creative professionals who require outstanding performance, reliability and enhanced security, ASUS Pro WS W680-ACE motherboard is powered by the latest 13th and 12th Gen Intel processors for always-on usage scenarios and supports ECC memory to automatically detect and correct data corruption, reducing the chance of system crashes to ensure workstation stability.
BMC Remote Management
ASUS IPMI expansion card is equipped with a dedicated Ethernet controller to BMC (Baseboard Management Controller) chip to provide the intelligence for its IPMI architecture. Administrators can remotely communicate with the BMC to take some corrective actions — such as resetting or power cycling a system.
Dual 2.5G Ethernet
Boosted connectivity with dual onboard Ethernet ports. Intel 2.5G Ethernet upgrades your traditional LAN connection with an up to 2.5X bandwidth improvement. Using your existing Ethernet cable, you can experience faster file transfers and immediately stream high-resolution videos.
ASUS Control Center Express
The best business performance requires smart IT management. ASUS Control Center Express is an intuitive and secure software designed to simplify IT operations and improve workload productivity by providing comprehensive control of all the systems in your organization. Plus, ASUS Control Center Express is compatible with over 100 ASUS motherboards to give you more upgrade flexibility and less compatibility issues.
Two PCIe 5.0 x16 slots provide flexible system configurability and expandability — including support for NVIDIA® Quadro® — for enhanced performance in modelling, simulation, and rendering applications.
Triple M.2 Slots
Triple M.2 slots support PCIe 4.0, offering up to 64 Gbps data-transfer speeds and flexible M.2 interfaces. The RAID 0/1/5/10 configuration are available for the data protection and increases fault tolerance to the entire system, higher storage capacity and better SSD performance.
A large, high-mass heatsink with extensive surface that covers the VRM and choke areas improves heat dissipation.
An expanded surface area for the chipset cooler maximizes performance and heat dissipation.
M.2 slot has a dedicated heatsink keep the M.2 SSD at optimum operating temperature to ensure consistent performance and reliability.
The innovative Q-Latch makes it easy to install or remove an M.2 SSD without the need for specific tools. The design employs a simple locking mechanism to secure the drive and neatly eliminate traditional screws.
SafeSlot & SafeDIMM
PCIe 5.0 is 2x faster than PCIe 4.0, so we adapted our SMT manufacturing process for the faster SafeSlot, to ensure the highest data speeds. SafeSlot is a reinforced metal sheath added to a PCIe slot to keep a card firmly installed. Meanwhile, strong ASUS SafeDIMM sheathes support and protect memory modules on select ASUS motherboards, empowering you to insert your modules with speed, accuracy and confidence.
Optimized for 24/7 operation, Pro WS W680-ACE motherboard is tested to work in temperatures of up to 45°C and 80% humidity, ensuring it can handle diverse operating environments.
Solid Compatibility Validation
ASUS Pro WS W680-ACE motherboard has been extensively tested for compatibility with over 1,000 components and devices. Each new ASUS motherboard model undergoes a minimum of 8,000 hours of strict tests so that you can be 100% confident it is suitable for all environments and applications.
