The Asus WS C422 PRO/SE is a workstation motherboard, built for Intel's Xeon W line of processors. It features multiple PCI-Express slots, high RAM capacity (up to 512GB!), and a nice set of rear panel I/O ports more akin to those found on consumer motherboards than what is usually available for the Xeon processor family.

In terms of connectivity, the WS C422 PRO/SE has five PCI-E 3.0 slots of varying sizes - supporting up to three double-width video cards for multi-GPU applications. It also has two M.2 connectors, one U.2, and six SATA ports for internal drives. Externally, it has four USB 2.0, four USB 3.0, two USB 3.1 (including one Type C port), two Gb Ethernet ports, and both analog and digital audio jacks.
