Overview

 

Four PCIe 3.0 x16 slots enable extreme graphics

 

ASUS Z270-WS accommodates up to four dual-width graphics cards and supports up to 4-Way NVIDIA® GeForce® SLI™, AMD® CrossFireX™, and 2-Way NVIDIA Quadro® SLI™. This makes Z270-WS an excellent choice for designers or other professionals who depend on powerful graphics and performance for tasks such as design and modeling, processing-intensive simulation and 3D-rendering applications - or even for gamers looking for multi-screen gaming and live streaming.

 

ASUS Pro Clock technology

A dedicated base-clock generator designed for 7th Generation Intel® processors allows overclocked base-clock frequencies of up to 425MHz* - or beyond! This custom solution works in tandem with the ASUS TPU to enhance voltage and base-clock overclocking control - providing an exciting new way to boost performance to extreme heights.

 

DDR4 overclocking Strength in numbers

Third-generation ASUS T-Topology allows memory frequencies that are higher than ever - to 3866MHz and beyond. Refined manufacturing ensures ultra-consistent quality and minimal crosstalk between custom trace paths, so you'll enjoy the thrill of overclocking DDR4 with time-aligned signaling along with superior stability and compatibility.

 

Dual Intel Gigabit LAN

Don't let slow networking disrupt your workflow! With dual Intel Gigabit Ethernet connectors, Z270-WS keeps your data moving swiftly and efficiently. With both LAN ports teamed* you'll benefit from increased bandwidth for more speed, automated load balancing for smoother data flows, and instant failover if anything goes wrong - so access to your files is always fast, efficient and uninterrupted.
