The Asus WS C621E SAGE is a feature-rich motherboard for the Xeon Scalable family of processors. There are sockets for two CPUs alongside 12 DDR4 RAM modules. Just as importantly, this board features seven PCI-Express slots. All are the full x16 length - although depending on which slots are populated, some may only run at x8 data speed.

For external connectivity the WS C621E SAGE includes multiple USB ports (2.0, 3.0, and 3.1), dual gigabit Ethernet ports for networking, both analog and digital audio, and a legacy PS/2 port for an older keyboard or mouse. Internally there are ten SATA 6Gbps ports, four U.2 connectors, and a single M.2 slot. That wide range of connectivity makes this board a great platform for a high performance workstation.

William George (Product Development SME) Says:
If you want a powerful, dual CPU system for roles outside of the server room, I highly recommend this board! It has all the standard connectivity you'd expect on a desktop or workstation, like USB 3.1 and audio, which are so often missing from server-class hardware. It also has several PCI-Express slots, allowing a wide range of add-on card configurations.

Note: As this is a server/workstation motherboard, standby/sleep functionality is not guaranteed.
