ULTRAFAST CONNECTIVITY TO POWER CREATIVITY
Intel® dual 10G Ethernet
Featuring dual onboard 10G LAN ports powered by the cutting-edge Intel® X550-AT2 Ethernet controller, Pro WS WRX80E-SAGE SE WIFI makes short work of multi-terabyte transfers from your creativities and provides server-grade connectivity with low-latency.
USB 3.2 Gen 2 x 2 Type C
The latest USB standard doubles transfer bandwidth by opening another USB 3.2 Gen 2 lane to achieve its maximum throughput of 20 Gbps. In addition to blazinly fast data-transfer speeds, USB 3.2 offers easy connectivity and ultimate flexibility via USB-C ports.
The front panel USB 3.2 Gen 2 connector is ready for next-gen PC cases and devices.
3 M.2 PCIe 4.0
Pro WS WRX80E-SAGE SE WIFI includes three M.2 and two U.2 slots wired to PCIe 4.0 x4 bandwidth. Creators working with massive video files can RAID together multiple NVMe devices for massive I/O bandwidth and seamless playback in their editing bays. These three slots rest under dedicated heatsinks to prevent SSD throttling under heavy loads.
With NVMe RAID support for Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO processors, unused CPU PCIe® 4.0 lanes can be assigned to storage, allowing you to create a bootable RAID array with multiple M.2 SSDs to provide incredible throughput — up to 8x faster than individual PCIe® 3.0 x4 SSDs. RAID can also be configured with PCIe® 3.0 SSDs.
* With included ASUS Hyper M.2 x16 Gen 4 card. RAID is limited to a maximum of 10 NVMe SSDs on the AMD WRX80 platform.
ECC memory support
AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ PRO processors offer unrivaled memory bandwidth and supports 8 memory channels, up to 2048 GB. It supports ECC memory to automatically detect and correct data corruption, reducing the chance of system crashes to ensure your creativity consistency and stability.
Intel® WiFi 6
The Intel® WiFi 6 AX200 module is compatible with the 802.11ax standard and pushes theoretical peak bandwidth up to an incredible 2.4 Gbps. Perhaps more importantly for power users, it's optimized for more efficient operation on crowded networks with a lot of competing traffic. Pair your motherboard with ASUS WiFi 6 routers to fully experience the networking potential of WiFi 6.
*Actual speed varies and depends on networking conditions.
SERVER-GRADE REMOTE MANAGEMENT
ASMB9-iKVM for remote management
An integrated BMC (Baseboard Management Controller) is a key feature for workstations. It uses an Intel X550 dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet controller, with one port dedicated to the BMC to provide the intelligence for its IPMI architecture. The BMC manages the interface between system-management software and platform hardware. Administrators can remotely communicate with the BMC to take some corrective actions — such as resetting or power cycling a system.
THOROUGH THERMAL DESIGN
16 Power stages
Pro WS WRX80E-SAGE SE WIFI’s VRM is comprised of 16 power stages, delivering the power and efficiency that the latest AMD processors demand.
6-pin Power connectors
Two additional PCIe 6-pin power connectors can add power output stability when creators use many graphic cards onboard.
SOC and DRAM heatsink
Since mass and airflow are critically important, our VRM heatsink is manufacturered with skived, high aspect ration thin fins. An SOC heatsink uses a semi-passive fan to draw heat away from the dual 10G LAN.
Actively cooled heatsink
The heatsink fin density is optimized to maximize surface area while maintaining a low-resistance exhaust path. The custom low-noise fan features a high-durability bearing with a 60,000-hour L10* lifespan.
* L10 bearing life is a standard metric that specifies the number of hours that 90% of the bearing are expected to continue successfully operating, as a minimum.
Three M.2 slots are covered by heatsinks to combat temperature-induced throttling that can affect performance during heavy, sustained storage loads.
Unique side-mounted connectors on the front-panel of the chassis keep cables away from the graphics cards and provide cleaner routing, easier management and a streamlined installation process.
Pre-mounted I/O shield
The patented I/O shield is finished in sleek matte black and comes pre-mounted for easy installation on the motherboard and is designed to allow air flow to keep the heat away from the board.
Users can place a BIOS file onto a FAT32-formatted USB drive and simply plug it into the USB BIOS FlashBack™ port and press a button to update the (UEFI) BIOS. Updates can be made even if memory or CPU aren't present.
