First look at ASUS W790?

ASUS teases its workstation motherboard for upcoming Xeon CPUs. 

Just a day ahead of the official Xeon W2400/W3400 series, ASUS is teasing its first platform for these new high-end desktop CPUs. The motherboard is not named, but we can clearly see it has LGA-4677 socket supported by the newest Intel Sapphire Rapids WS series.

A closer look at the photo confirms it supports up to 8-channel DDR5 memory and PCIe Gen5 M.2 storage, all these features are the backbone of the new LGA-4677 platform for new Xeons.

ASUS is not sharing the full name of the board yet, but this being part of the PRO series means we are expecting a successor to WS C621-64L SAGE motherboard. This board was designed for LGA-3647 socket and Xeon W-3200 series, considered Intel’s most recent effort into HEDT/WS market.

ASUS also recently introduced PRO WS W680-ACE motherboard for LGA1700 socket with support for Intel 13th Gen Core series. But the true competitor to W790 series should be WRX80 platform for Ryzen Threadripper PRO CPUs, which even looks to have very similar layout. This board currently retails at around $950, giving us an idea how much could this W790 PRO motherboard cost.
