Overview

Four PCIe 3.0 x16 slots for flexible expandability with add-on cards

WS C246 PRO features four PCIe x16 slots for flexible system configurability and expandability with add-on cards, such as NVIDIA Quadro graphics, RAID and LAN cards. With support for AMD CrossFireX 2-way configurations, WS C246 PRO harnesses the full power of the latest graphics technologies.

Powerful performance with Intel® Xeon® E processor and ECC memory

WS C246 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 C246 PRO is equipped for total display flexibility with onboard HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI-D 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.

Dual M.2 for up to 32Gbps performance and data redundancy

WS C246 PRO features dual M.2 slots to unleash maximum data-transfer performance. One M.2 slot supports up to 22110-length M.2 drives via PCIe Gen3 x4 for ultrafast data access, making it the perfect choice for an operating system or application drive. The other M.2 slot is suitable for SATA drives or Intel® Optane memory via PCIe Gen3 x2 support to speed up traditional hard drives.

The latest 10Gb/s USB 3.1 for high transfer speed

WS C246 PRO's front panel USB 3.1 connector is ready for next-gen PC cases and devices. With backward-compatible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A and reversible USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C ports, you'll experience ultimate connection flexibility and blazing data-transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps.

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 C246 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.
